Hope Brookins is a leading personal branding coach and keynote speaker. She helps professionals build their personal brands and get comfortable with self-promotion through one-on-one coaching, online courses, in-person workshops, and keynotes.
By the time she was 19, Hope had interned for President Clinton, 14 United States Congressmen, and politicians at every level of state politics. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Leveraging her experience in politics, Hope started strategically positioning entrepreneurs through branding before taking on the ultimate experience of positioning her own family.
Hope spearheaded her family’s publicity campaign positioning them to be recognized internationally for their story and, more importantly, their message. Her family’s story of leaving a traumatic situation to build their own 3500 square-foot home with their own hands—using YouTube videos as their guide—went viral. Within two weeks they were featured in 65 countries in over 1,000 media outlets, including the Today Show, People, New York Times Women’s Edition, ABC, CNN, CBS, Inside Edition, USA Today, NBC, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Her family’s story is now being turned into a film.
Her experience in the public eye, in the media, and building her own platform combined with her millennial perspective, is instrumental to her clients’ success and why she’s been labeled a “branding and publicity powerhouse” by her clients. Through her speaking and training programs, she helps clients create a public profile by building a personal brand and crafting a media-ready message to boost their image, shape their reputation, and increase their visibility.
Today Hope’s strategies help professionals become powerful spokespeople for their brands so they can share their messages with the world.
