Get the most benefit with Leveraging LinkedIn Training Courses
LinkedIn is the essential business networking tool for professionals and sales executives and anyone wanting a more distinguished online presence. It is highly respected internationally for business marketing and almost essential for career advancement in overseas Fortune 500 companies. But often without specific LinkedIn training, users fail to derive the most benefit out of the tool.
About the course
This course is a hands-on practical workshop where delegates will work on their own profiles and update them. It is intended to demonstrate how LinkedIn is useful for not only marketing and sales but also for research, customer support and retention, branding and personal and career development.
Please bring your laptop and internet connection.
Public courses are held in Gauteng and Cape Town, in other areas on request, and in-house courses are available.
The benefit of providing for an in-house course for Leveraging LinkedIn is that you will be able to have the session focus on your business and industry, have valuable conversations and make decisions within your team and allocate and obtain agreement to social media responsibilities in a group session.

As a professional speaker, it is equally important for me to be able to connect with clients as well as being able to advertise my own services. Charlotte came very highly recommended by another speaker and I decided to do the course and see if it could help me.
As I have never received even a glimmer of work from LinkedIn, I was slightly skeptical so imagine my surprise when after a number of changes to my profile, I received a message from a client asking me to quote.
It may be serendipity, but I think Charlotte has given me another arrow go my marketing bow.
Oh and the other stuff…great speaker, teacher, venue etc, all the things I would expect were there and often above my expectation.
