Personal bios must be succinct while perfectly positioning your branding
Personal bios are often needed when you have to introduce yourself to audiences at an event – an interview, a speaking engagement – or for inclusion in any piece of marketing communication. You may also need a bio as the author of a piece of literary work such a book or video.
Most personal bios don’t contain images, although some do allow for images to accompany text. In such cases, it would be ideal to include an image that adds context to the personal bio,
The format that produces great results for a personal bio is this. First, introduce your background and your “why”. Then proceed to describe your current work, qualifications, extra activities. Add a rounding-off sentence about you as a person and your non-work life. Of course, you must add contact information at the very end.
Throughout the bio, words have to be short and crisp – with all important details included, but without pomposity. The art is in knowing how to describe yourself and your accomplishments without any positive or negative self-consciousness.
