Friday 5th July

Bringing LIFE to LinkedIn!

Do you feel like a fish out of water when it comes to LinkedIn? Are you getting familiar with Facebook, but find LinkedIn difficult and unfriendly? Do you wish you could make LinkedIn as colourful, attractive and easy on the eye as other social media platforms? Would you like to take control of your LinkedIn profile, and use it to generate more contacts and business leads? Would you like the confidence to be able to interact with friends, comment in group chats, learn how to market yourself better online? Would you love to have your testimonials proudly displayed, in video and pictures, at the top of your LinkedIn page, making your profile more attractive to customers? Are you fed up of trainers talking down to you, using jargon and going too fast? Event suitable for ages 16 and over.
