BRANDING

How to build your reputation as the go to celebrant by being authentically you

Zena Birch fell into celebrancy over a decade ago. Post fall, she took the actively positive step into training with Humanists UK and hasn’t looked back.
Over 280 weddings later the thing that still surprises and inspires her are the 560+ individual human stories she has had the privilege to learn about, explore and nurture into ceremonies. As we all know, no two couples are ever the same! A former chair of Humanists UK Ceremonies Board and part of the mentor training scheme, Zena is excited to be able to talk about her own take on celebrancy and how to authentically explore your own.
Her session:
Zena is going to talk about her own celebrant journey and how happy accident and authentic pursuit can help you build your brand just as much as a carefully planned strategy.
In this session we will look at how to keep your celebrant work fresh and engaging for yourself not just your couples, how to always fit the occasion instead of owning the show, how the professional/personal relationship you forge with your couples is paramount and how by breaking free of the idea of the ‘perfect clients’ you just may find yourself challenged, invigorated and a better celebrant practitioner.
