As one of the earliest adopters in experimenting with LinkedIn for business development purposes over a decade ago, Lyn Hawkins believes it is still one of the most useful online tools and databases to support growth strategies for business-to-business and professional services marketing. Co-Presenting is Jessica Schubert, the Director of Intact Teams and an accredited Coach and Leadership expert. who brings to the table, impressive experience as an international sales director working across both Australian and Asian markets. Jessica believes every business woman needs to understand LinkedIn and how to combine this platform with an authentic “professional and personal brand” and a relationship development focus.
Hear the ways that top level executives and companies can build and profile their own brands, and use LinkedIn to harness the opportunities in the market. With pragmatic demonstrations on how to research, engage, build brand awareness and create opportunities using LinkedIn, Jessica and Lyn will demonstrate how easy it is to utilise without being seduced into a LinkedIn “time warp” or be seen as “too salesy”.
