Agency Owner Rollercoaster | Laura Briggs – The power of personal branding and marketing, driving inbound opportunities during a global pandemic

On this episode I’m joined by Laura Briggs, founder of Laura Briggs Recruitment. 

I was buzzing to hear her story and talk about all things recruitment, marketing and Covid-19.

Three key things that we expanded on during this episode.

If you’re a recruiter who is still apprehensive about personal branding and marketing, I urge you to give this episode a listen.

If you’re a recruiter who wants to learn about value proposition and how to generate inbound enquiries, this is also an episode for you.

I think you’re all going to love this one.
