LinkedIn – Lifting the lid off what is possible for Consultants

‘Consultants Anonymous’ plus friends of EWIC

This event will demonstrate how consultants and freelancers can leverage LinkedIn to influence present and prospective customers to drive new business and create engagement. Many business professionals who work for themselves are on LinkedIn, but often don’t know why! They have no strategy and hence see few benefits.

This session will lift the lid off some of the key benefits to being active on LinkedIn and will go more deeply into how to use LinkedIn to generate more opportunities by being an influencer. The session will reveal how to spot opportunities by being active in your specialist industry sector.

You will leave with many tips to help you keep up with and benefit from the enhanced use of LinkedIn. The session will be fun and engaging with plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout!

This session is for all those who have a presence on social media and want to improve their performance. Results guaranteed!

Please note: This session is already beginning to look like a sell out – please act quickly to guarantee a place.
