Sassy Speaks Episode Six: Build Your Brand

28 February, 2019

Ever wondered just what having a personal brand means? We’ve got all the answers for you in this week’s episode.

We’ve been your guide for all things Hong Kong for the last ten years, and to celebrate, we’ve decided to take the leap into the brave new world of podcasting! Each week we’ll sit down with two amazing guests to have candid conversations on a whole host of topics that you’ve told us you want to hear more about. There’ll be a new episode every Thursday for the next four weeks, so be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes or your favourite podcasting platform so you don’t miss a thing.

Having a personal brand is becoming more and more important these days. Gone are the days where you can tweet without consequence, so it’s even more valuable to have control over your personal brand. But where do you even begin? And with the line blurring between what is firmly professional and what is firmly personal when it comes to your online presence, how do you avoid the pitfalls when curating your brand? This week, we sit down with Jocelyn and Geneva, two branding powerhouses, to talk all things personal branding and just what you need to do to own your space on the internet.

@ritualscosmeticshk is making its debut in the ifc mall (Unit 1066, Podium Level 1) this Friday, 20 September. For those of you who don’t know this Sassy-approved Dutch brand - it’s time to put it firmly on your radar.  Its products are designed to make us slow down and indulge in some self-care and mindfulness, which is something we can’t argue with. The first 500 people in line at the store at 4pm that day will get a goody bag worth at least $280. We’ll race you there!⁠
