Anyone who knows me know that networking
is my oxygen and LinkedIn is my lungs
I promised the presentation ( slideshare) and links to all those who attended. But before I go into those my three thoughts to sum up the entire presentation:
1) In 2012, get your personal profile in order! Optimized for your goal be it job search, career development, general networking or to help others. Here are my tips and the big resource I shared that day
2) Get your company profile taken to the next level. I cited ” Johnnie Walker’s LinkedIn Page ” and campaign as an example of a company page gone right. Get yours in order today
3) Social Media, besides LinkedIn is going to be the way business is done in the next decade. The dirty one seat to the left is “push business marketing” the one way we did business for the past many years. I love this seat on the Toronto subway, it’s the ONLY private seat with no one touching or bothering me – it’s about control. Enter the NEW subway, open, interactive all the way through. This is web 2.0, the NEXT way to communicate. It represents a loss of control but greater opportunity to connect and do business. You have NO choice – start experimenting in this space today, or soon you’ll be left looking for a seat!
So! Links promised:
