They say that your reputation precedes you - and in a digitally connected world, our reputations have never been more vital nor more connected to the success of our businesses or careers. But in a time poor world, how can we effectively manage our personal brands and build our reputation?
LinkedIn - the world's second largest social network - provides a powerful platform allowing you to connect with potential business contacts, grow a network of like minded professionals and - perhaps surprisingly - provide you with job opportunities.
This workshop will be led by social media strategist, Gavin Heaton, who will lead you through a proven 10 step program designed to help you establish and build your personal profile, grow your network and show you how to connect not just with colleagues but network to find potential career opportunities.
This workshop is especially fruitful for beginners, social entrepreneurs, NFPs and self-employed who are new to LinkedIn as well as people wishing to change career paths new to or returning to the job market.
