In today’s global economy and complex business environment, many business leaders are forced to re-evaluate their strategies and apply them to the new digital age of business. The role of a leader has evolved to become more transparent, social, connected, and accessible than ever before. In 2013, Wall Street Journal stated that personal branding is the second most important job skill.

All entrepreneurs and executives bring their personal brand to their organization. Thus, strategic, consistent and effective personal brand management is becoming increasingly critical to the success of the leader and the companies that depend on them.  


  • Talaya provided me with a much needed overhaul of my "personal branding” via a consulting contract. It was time and money well spent as she focused in on many areas of improvement I was not aware of. I am the Managing Partner of Briggs Capital an international Investment Bank. Branding both my firm and myself in a harmonious fashion needs someone from the outside looking in like Talaya.

  • I had an extremely positive experience! Talaya is professional, informative, and has a positive attitude.

  • Dr. Talaya Waller has spoken at various panels and events for the Women's Information Network (WIN). Each time, she was thoughtful, honest, knowledgeable and inspiring. Her expertise on personal branding and positioning yourself for success has proven invaluable!

  • Ms. Waller put together a marvelous and engaging presentation for the students that touched on the importance of and do's and don’t's of personal branding. The EHL interns were given the opportunity to identify what their personal brand is by crafting their own personal brand statement. The EHL interns thoroughly enjoyed how interactive the presentation was and the humor that Ms. Waller was able to incorporate throughout. Additionally, many of the interns mentioned how inspiring it was to see a young woman of color as the head of her own company. Overall, this was a very informative presentation and we would be very interested in reaching out to Waller & Company again.
