WEBINAR: Personal Branding with Rennie Curran

Date: March 28, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm until 1:00 pm

Location: Virtual Venue (Online)

From athlete to author and entrepreneur, Rennie Curran knows personal branding. No matter how good you are at what you do or how amazing your product is compared to what is out there, how your brand is perceived can make all the difference. In this webinar, Rennie shares his insightful personal branding framework and provides practical techniques and personal tips to help you develop and evaluate your unique personal brand and align your personal brand with that of your organization.

After participating in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the value of personal branding
  • Identify their unique, personal brand
  • Construct alignment between their personal and organizational brands

Presented by Rennie Curran: 

Rennie Curran is a former professional athlete who currently serves as an active Keynote Speaker, Author, and the CEO of Game Changer Coaching. He uses his platform to inspire students, athletes, and business professionals to reach their fullest potential. In this webinar on personal branding, Rennie partners with UGA’s Career Services and the Office of Executive Programs in the Terry College of Business to inspire and engage professional business leaders in the UGA community.

Born in Atlanta, GA and the son of Liberian immigrants, Curran has a diverse background with humble beginnings. He began his football career at Brookwood High School in Snellville, GA becoming the all-time leading tackler in Gwinnett County history. He was initially considered undersized according to various critics but quickly silenced the doubters by exploding onto the field as a true freshman at the University of Georgia.

His experiences of overcoming many circumstances to reach his childhood dream of becoming a 3-time All American, Butkus Award Finalist, permanent team Captain, a 3rd round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft (Tennessee Titans) and transitioning into becoming a successful entrepreneur has given him a unique perspective on what it takes to handle adversity and maximize opportunities while having a positive impact on others.

Through his innovative presentations, he teaches individuals and organizations how to transform their personal and professional lives through leadership and personal development. Rennie has been counseling and inspiring people for many years. He is the CEO of Game Changer Coaching whose mission is to help elite athletes, business professionals, and executives become influential leaders by improving performance and building their brand.

In 2013, he published a motivational self-help book entitled ‘Free Agent’ The Intangibles for Overcoming Adversity and Times of Transition. This motivational self-help book discusses how to overcome adversity during the times of transition that we all face along our journey to achieve our dreams. He also has a newly released children’s book entitled “What Does It Take to Be a Star” which was co-written with his 9- year-old daughter Eleana Curran. The book taps into every child's curiosity to find their own personal greatness by helping them to realize that being a Star has less to do with your title and more to do with who you are as a person.

Rennie obtained a Bachelors of Business Administration from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business and certification in personal development coaching from the Life Purpose Institute. He has been featured in USA Today, Fox Sports, ESPN College GameDay, The Huffington Post, BET, and much more.

When Rennie is not speaking, coaching, or writing he is usually spending time with his daughter or catching up on one his favorite hobbies: music. He grew up playing the piano, drums, and viola. He is also a public servant who spends lots of time giving back through several organizations including Boys and Girls Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, ALS Foundation, Boys Scouts of America, and many more. Curran is a man of faith, humility, integrity, and resilience.
