CDI Cymru - Using LinkedIn to develop your and your clients’ personal brands

People google people before they commit to working with them - this is a fact. Our personal brand is our offer of value and as we move into 2019, we have to ensure we are promoting our brand online in a way which helps us stand out for all the right reasons. An effective online presence needs to show off true talents, strengths, skills, experience and achievements authentically and LinkedIn is one of the most effective platforms for showcasing this, but are you and your clients using it as effectively as possible? Are you confident using it to build your client list? Does your profile really reflect what you want to be known for and can you discuss the advantages of LinkedIn and guide others how to use it? Do your clients understand how to do the same? If you are unsure how to answer any of these questions, then this webinar is for you. It will help you create a powerful LinkedIn profile that showcases 'brand you', that will reach and engage the people you want in your network and give you tips and techniques, so you can become LinkedIn savvy to the benefit of you, your work and your clients.
