Do you still think LinkedIn is just a place to store your CV if you are job-hunting?
At the Burton Small Business conference on October 11, Elaine Pritchard will take you through 15 tips to unleash the power of LinkedIn for your business or organisation.
Elaine said: “Many people are only using a fraction of the tools within the free version of LinkedIn. It can help small businesses in so many ways. You can connect with the influencers in your sector to help your business grow; raise your profile and demonstrate your expertise; cement relationships with your current clients and drive repeat business as well as generating new business leads.”
Elaine will also show you ways to measure the impact you are having through LinkedIn.
The conference is supported by Marston’s Brewery who are providing refreshments and a networking buffet lunch to close the event between 1pm and 2pm. Delegates will arrive from 9am and the conference will be officially opened by Mayor of East Staffordshire, Councillor Simon Gaskin at 9.30am. Read more about the event’s speakers here.
