LinkedIn is undeniably the pre-eminent business networking platform online giving professionals from organisations and businesses across the world the ability to connect, develop their sales and demonstrate their skills, services and products.
With 225m users worldwide as of May 2013 and over 12m users in the United Kingdom alone, the business opportunities that LinkedIn provides are immense – these are people like yourself who are there for genuine business reasons, not to pass their time reporting back on their private lives or current eating habits of their pets. This is also not just for recruiters – a little bit of training in LinkedIn can demonstrate the immense opportunities it offers as a sales and marketing tool for companies of all sizes.
And that’s what we offer – an independent training and coaching service for LinkedIn users of all levels from beginners to advanced users looking to extend their knowledge and use of this exceptional tool.
LinkedIn Public Workshops
As well as the customised workshops that we run on your premises, we also run LinkedIn Training in the form of half day public workshops. These training sessions take place on a monthly basis in various locations and are aimed at two different audiences.
The “Using LinkedIn for Business Success” sessions are for business people in general, sales and marketing teams and individuals looking to use LinkedIn to better effect. The “LinkedIn for Recruiters” sessions are aimed at recruitment and HR teams, both internal teams and external recruitment agencies.

Do we need training on LinkedIn?
The constant developments in the LinkedIn site ensure they continue to lead in the business networking area, but the downside to this is that keeping up with the opportunities available to us all can be difficult. Equally ensuring that our profiles are serving us to best effect and that we have the right strategy to achieve our business goals is critical to success. That is where LinkedIn Training comes in.
We provide training courses and coaching in LinkedIn which covers not just the functional use of the key elements of the site but also helps in establishing the best strategies for using LinkedIn whether your business goals are focused on developing your prospects and sales, extending your contact base, looking for a new role or developing a customer focus and base.
LinkedIn Training: some of the benefits
While sometimes coaching or training on platforms such as LinkedIn may seem to be unnecessary, in reality the opposite seems to be true.
After every LinkedIn training session we run, I’m always pleased that people are kind enough to come up to me and say that they have learned something about LinkedIn that they didn’t know before and that the training had been really worthwhile just for that. And that is not only from the Using LinkedIn for Business training course but from the more specialised training and coaching as well.
But don’t take my word for it – or even theirs! – come along to one of the training session on LinkedIn and see for yourself what a powerful addition it is to your networking and your business development efforts as well.
