Workshop Overview

It will give you all you need to make LinkedIn a key part of your business development and marketing toolbox.

We start by looking at your personal profile, the foundation of your activity on LinkedIn, and examine how to both appeal to individual visitors as well as help you to attract the right people by appearing high up LinkedIn’s Search. We then move on to how you can actively use LinkedIn to find the right connections for you and your business.
