Hilary Carter | public speaker and the founder of InTune Communications, a strategic communications firm

I recently read a quote by Jay Danzie that describes the essence of professional branding and business success in person-to-person terms: “Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark.”

The best thing we can do to build our professional brands is to be conscientious, positive, and accountable. We can make sure our say-do ratio is 100 per cent. We can go the extra mile, choose to have an open mind, and embrace change.

Success in experiential is all about making connections with people. Four event professionals share their tips on honing a personal brand.

Denny McCorkle | nationally recognized and award winning Marketing Professor at the University of Northern Colorado

Just make eye contact. Say hello. Extend your handshake. Then, share your name and a short phrase to set the stage for a conversation. “Hi, I am Denny McCorkle. I teach students how to market themselves.” “Hello, I am Debra Johnson. I manage others’ money.” “Hi there. I am Jim Hastings. I turn data into strategies.” Reduce your 30 second elevator pitch into a 5 second personal brand mantra. Short. Simple. An introduction. And, hopefully a conversation starter. So what’s next? Silence. Or, at least a pregnant pause. Try not to speak more until you get a response. If there is an awkward lull, then simply ask: “__first name__, what do you do?” Then let your curiosity and short questions take the conversation to a natural place. And, don’t start talking about yourself.

Jodi Flynn | Women taking the lead

This quote also reminds me of the popular quote by Maya Angelou, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” You can have all the bells and whistles on your website and your store front but it is the experience that you create for others that determines what people will think of you. What experience do you create for others? “Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark.”  ~ Jay Danzie

Author Bob Burg | The Quotable coach

The quote “People do business with those they know, like, and trust” is attributed to Bob Burg, author of “Endless Referrals.” Take a look at those around you, specifically at your most trusted friends and advisors. How do their smiles, personalities, and the way they make you feel in their presence create that special enduring loyalty?


Go out of your way today to smile more often, share your most winning personality traits, and be sure to leave everyone you meet better off because of the time you spent together.

Rich Gee | No Excuses Make It Happen

SMILE: When you first meet someone, do you project a REAL smile? Are you genuinely happy to meet them? Or are you faking it? Step back and understand WHY you might not be fully engaged in making a new friend. Are you insecure? Are you tired? Are you distracted? The more present you are when connecting with people, the more successful you’ll be in life because you are projecting true authenticity. You’re there to make a new friend. PERSONALITY: How can you kick up your personality? Most people think they can’t — the personality they have is the one they’re always going to have. That’s bunk. You can change your personality instantly by kicking up your enthusiasm, engage your body language, pump up your patter — talk faster, a bit more forceful, change the intonation frequently. Act like you are excited to meet them and learn all about them. Make connecting stick.http://richgee.com/11063-2/

I came across a post on Facebook that a good buddy posted the other day. I was blown away with the post. It was picture of a great, thought-provoking quote. I’ve never heard the quote before or the author Jay Danzie, but Jay hit it out of the park on this one. For us security guys and gals, his quote is about being completely genuine, authentic, real, selfless, caring and passionate with our prospects and clients, plus highly knowledgeable about security products and dedicated to implementing and installing these products to properly safeguard and protect our clients.http://securitymarketingguru.com/bobs-security-marketing-blog/your-smile-is-your-logo/

HELLO! I’m a Journalism graduate from Manchester, with a love for travelling, good food, and puppies! I studied at Sheffield Hallam for three years and when my time was up, I discovered that all my hard work and effort helped me to achieve a 2:1.

Since studying Journalism at Sheffield Hallam, I’ve realised just how many opportunities are available within the ‘Journalism’ industry. I have come to love the fast pace of both TV and Radio, and the excitement that comes with producing live shows.

Bankers Advertising company | since 1896

What’s the first thing you notice about a person? Their smile is a common answer.

Smiling is such a valuable business asset. As Jay Danzie says, “Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark”.

Think about this quote – Your smile is your logo. Did you know that people who smile appear as more likeable, courteous and even competent? How is your logo today? Remember this quote from Connie Stevens, “Nothing you wear is more important than your smile”.

Yes…business and life can be tough, but make it easier on yourself, your clients and those elusive prospects – smile.  Let them know you enjoy what you do and can’t wait to deliver their goods or provide a unique idea. It’s simple, sales and customer service begins and ends with a smile.http://www.bankersadvertising.com/blog/2017/05/a-smile-is-all-you-need/

Logo and branding to make you look as good as you are.

Without a professional logo and expertly designed branding you are simply not going to stand out from the crowd – it’s that simple. Using a generic, cheap cookie cutter logo service is also not the best answer if you are serious about building a brand that is lasting.

You only have one shot at a first impression. Make yours count.https://freedomstudios.co.za/services/logo-branding-design/

“Your smile is your logo. Your personality is your business card. How you leave others feeling after an interaction becomes your trademark.”

Jay Danzie, a famous business writer, said that “your smile is your logo”- which suggest that the front facing people of your company should be approachable and smiling. He adds that your personality is your business card and the impression you left in them is your trademark



Many people think that personal branding is simply for celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan or Virat Kholi, yet each and every one of us is a Brand. Whether you know it or not, you already have a Personal Brand. It’s up to you how well you manage it. As a brand, we can apply the same strategies that make these celebrities or corporate brands appeal to others.“Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark”.– Jay Danzie

Having a strong personal brand of our own is an important asset. Creating your own brand at a young age and building it over the years, is one of the best investments you can make today. So, here are a few ways to build your Personal Brand and stand out from the crowd:

Personal Experiences listed 

“Mr. Jerome (Jay) L. Danzie whom I have known as a co-worker and personal friend for twenty-seven years. In that time Jay has shown himself to be a standout. He is a loyal, honest, considerate, and a supportive individual who has the ability to see and understand things from another person’s perspective. He is a great direct communicator and knows how to raise and discuss common day to day issues in a non-threatening manner. He is hyper-sensitive and is always tuned into how another person might “feel” in a given situation.

I first met Jay, when we were both starting our work careers. We were just high school students and I knew then that there was something extraordinary about him. He came to work when scheduled and always played his part on the team. He is the type of person that will help anybody. He likes to have loads of fun too and boy can he dance. A thought provoking conversationalist along with being a motivator. I am so glad I have had the pleasure of knowing this great guy all these years. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.”

“How to Travel the World on a Shoestring was an awesome, resourceful and informative book. This book has shown to have value in my life. I recently had car trouble where I needed to rent a vehicle. After reading How to Travel the World on a Shoestring I realized I could get crazy discounts by going to www.enterprise.com and or www.priceline.com. The book had stated that enterprise weekend specials starts from Wednesday-Monday and with priceline.com you can (bid)quote your own price on rental cars.
Knowing this one piece of information from “How to Travel the World on a Shoestring” has saved me hundreds of dollars. There are many other tips & resources listed as well that I’m eager to implement.”

It is said that character is what one is and reputation is what one is thought to be by others.  Jay’s responsible and amiable character is synonymous with his reputation.  I have served on a non-profit board and as proofreader of one of his books for more than 6 years.  Over that period I have come to know and anticipate the valuable qualities that Jay brings to projects.
His creative thought process, follow through, and discipline add value to the planning, administration, and execution of many projects that go on to become successful business ventures.  He has actively worked over the years to serve his community by eliminating blight, mentoring youth and supporting the political process, just to name a few.  In every activity, Jay can be counted on to be timely, responsive and effective.  In addition to his dedication to achieving results, Jay is very constructive in the planning process.  He is able to bring calm and reason to debates, ensuring that a team’s goals are ultimately met.[…] Jay is intelligent, professional and a joy with which to work.  I highly recommend him as an asset to future projects, and I am happy to furnish more details if requested.

During his Marketing tenure at Achievable Visions I found him to be intelligent with decision making on projects he implemented.  Jay was consistently pleasant even under pressure.  He illustrated dedication in handling all his responsibilities.  He was always gratifying to work with because he always smiled no matter what.  His persistence and leadership role has always been inspiring and motivating to others. He is and would make a great attribute to any organization that he manages.”
