Better results from your LinkedIn profile

Imagine you’re at a networking event, and meet your ideal client, business partner or employer. Next morning, this person looks you up on LinkedIn to find out more about you. Now ask yourself: would they be impressed with what they see there, or disappointed? Would they have a clear idea of your skills, qualifications and experience — and would they get an idea that they want to work with you? This one-hour workshop can provide some practical steps you can take now, towards building a LinkedIn profile that showcases your expertise and knowledge in your field. You’ll learn:

The importance of fulfilling the basic needs for your LinkedIn profile: an effective title, summary, with recommendations and connections
Selecting a portrait that does you credit — and shows your unique qualities
How LinkedIn Posts can help you spread your ideas to your connections, and further
The importance of adding visual content to your profile, and how to do it
How to participate in Groups to learn, and build relationships
How LinkedIn’s little-known “Companies” pages can help you connect with your ideal client or employer

There are many videos, presentations and books on how to use LinkedIn to get a job, or to succeed as a sales representative. This workshop is useful for those purposes, but is focused mostly on how you can be seen as a subject-matter expert in your area of focus.

Presenter Carl Friesen has given many presentations and workshops on how to be recognized for your expertise, including how LinkedIn can help you. Carl has a background in journalism and an MBA in Marketing. Over the past 15 years he has used his skills over the past 15 years to help his business professional clients get their ideas published in media read by their clients, including social media such as LinkedIn. He has published five books on profile-building for business professionals. This presentation will be backed by plenty of examples that show the ideas, done in an interactive way so you can learn how to apply the ideas to your own career success.
