Co-authored with Ryan Coelho, a Millennial engagement specialist, Umar’s book is being promoted at networking and speaking events.
The popularity of this first book has cemented the partnership for at least two more books in the series that will provide networking tactics anyone can use, focusing on common challenging networking situations on social media, and in meetings. Umar has been networking professionally in many situations for years, and it helped him realize the value and importance of effective networking skills.
“I am just so grateful that my ideas are resonating and helping people who feel lost on their career or business path. Whenever I think of the 350,000 people in my social media network who comment, share and offer gratitude, it is surreal.”
Umar is well known as a networking maven for his four TEDx presentations, and for having been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Leadership Speakers. He founded DYPB, the Discover Your Personal Brand conference, the largest annual event in North America dedicated solely to personal branding, featuring over 300 attendees and 60+ experts. Recently he partnered with an event featuring A-List personal development celebrities Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Barbara De Angelis, and Bob Proctor, when they came to Toronto for The Power of Success event, to which he helped several local entrepreneurs attend.
This fall, Umar will be launching “Know, Grow & Show Your Personal Brand – a deep dive,” a one-day intensive in Toronto, to help clients understand their brand promise, focus on their primary target and get past challenges and insecurities when creating their promotional materials and collateral. After adjusting the program activities and takeaways based on the feedback of his participants, he plans to make the improved program available across North America.
Umar has been helping entrepreneurs and C-suite leaders with branding, networking mastery and thought leadership for years.
“I cannot possibly say enough about the clarity, purpose, and direction Bobby is providing for me in growing my new business from the ground up. I learn something new and important from him with every interaction and his input has been, and will continue to be, critical in the growth of my business and career. Bobby is the KING of strategy. Not only that, but as a person he is kind, warm, thoughtful, accommodating, and gives the best hugs! He walks his talk every step of the way. Bobby is, quite simply, is the real deal in his ability to coach ‘lost leaders’ towards becoming ‘thought leaders’,” says Janelle Morrison, Umar’s client, and a former Ironman Triathlete.
“If you are looking for one person to help inspire, develop leaders and become a true catalyst for success, that person is Bobby Umar,” said J. Brett Abbey, the president of Message Masters and and fellow speaker at the DYPB event.
“Bobby’s insights into the way we operate were bang-on. Bobby’s initiatives were extremely valuable and an inspiration. Can’t wait to have him back!” shared Shirley Mukerjea the Marketing Director for Pepsico and professional colleague to Umar.
