Since its official launch in May 2003, LinkedIn the B2B social networking tool has grown to over 400 million + members worldwide (20 million in the UK). However, it is arguably still under used by many who have joined.

In this session, Luan Wise will guide you through creating the perfect profile and show you how to maximize your presence (personal and company), to listen and engage with peers, clients and prospects.

You will receive a personalised profile audit at the beginning of the session and learn –
• How to build a powerful profile and network
• How to leverage your connections and manage your invitations
• How to compose your headline and the importance of it
• How to write a great personal summary and add media to your profile
• How to navigate around the home page
• How to manage your privacy and settings
• How to best utilise recommendations and endorsements
• How to use groups, content and advanced search
• The conversation triggers to ensure you stay in front of your network
