Your name is your brand. And what is more important than that. After 20 years building brands for companies and organisations, I felt the responsibility to take care of my own brand. My very own important asset, my name.
Who is Tyas Handayani ? She is a marketer, professional experienced in branding, communications, digital social media, e-commerce and social foundation.
Agree with David Aaker on one of his article at LinkedIn, every professional should look to his or her past career as future direction and identify some influential signature stories which he called, the “Who am I stories”. I do care about my journey as a professional. With many roles I’ve done in the past, my defining moments like choosing career paths, success or failures, and very importantly my contributions not to be vaporised, misunderstood, or worst case be forgotten.

As a professional and now a partner consultant, I love to share, give advise, sometimes have the opportunity to teach on branding and social media. Consequently, it is crucial for me, to be consistent about what I say and what I do.
In a world full of noise I found a way to share my story without any interruption, being my own narrator, editor and moderator on my own platform, my blog and social media. It is who I am, or you can call it my product. In the future, as brand transcends into many possible directions who knows what it might become.
It is never about how many likes or quantity followers I get. But the type of content I put on my channels or the quality of content that represent me as a personality. How I interact to those who wants to engage with me and vice versa. As I believe those channels could lead to networks or opportunities but most importantly, trust and credibility.
So I am going to continue sharing my point of views and experiences. My aim for higher purpose is searching new opportunities and projects as it becomes my platform and a doorway to grow. Ambitious in doing good, addicted in bettering myself and be more knowledgable.
Through this combination of story and missions, creating projects that build me as a whole hence reflecting my future-self. By doing that, I call it the Tyas Branding Project. Stay tune.
