Our most popular event of the year. Dawn Adlam from BizLinks, a LinkedIn trainer gave the session.  Dawn went through plenty of hints and tips about what does and doesn’t happen in LinkedIn.  Key things attendees learnt was that their headline is key to getting LinkedIn rankings, and that never mind your job title going there, add your key benefits and keywords that you want to be found by in there instead.  Second most important point to being found is having your summary include your keywords and clear advice on how to contact you.  Once found, make sure your photo is professional, and of course, how to find people that are of interest to you, and how to introduce yourself.  And of course – stop selling and start sharing to get people not to ‘turn you off’.  Loads more hints than space here can allow, but if you missed this workshop and wished you hadn’t, a similar one is being run in 2017!  Thanks to Simon for organising this, Dawn Adlam from BizLinks (www.thebizlinks.co.uk) for presenting and for Bilfinger GVA for the room and fabulous food.
