Do you have a LinkedIn account and profile? If you do, what do you use it for?
Are you maximising this free social media platform to get results, make connections and build relationships? Do you make all your contacts count towards the success of your business?
Networking can be daunting. Having the confidence to approach and communicate who you are, what you do and how you help people is alien to many - even on an online platform like LinkedIn. Most business people have an account with LinkedIn and the tips and skills you'll gain for use on the platform will also help you network at face to face and virtual events.
This 3 hour workshop will help you to build your confidence in using LinkedIn to use as a tool to help you develop your networking skills, seek new opportunities and suppliers as well as gain new skills. You will also have the option to practice at a facilitated speed networking session.
By the end of the workshop you will have a clear overview of:
• The benefits LinkedIn can bring
• How to create a winning profile
• Ways to engage your audience
• Posting and interacting - Tips and Tricks
• Maximising LinkedIn Groups
• Identifying opportunities
• How to network effectively both in person and online
• Building relationships and following up
• Speed Networking
Following the session, you will also have the opportunity to book in virtual meetings with a Business Navigator to discuss other ways in which the Growth Hub could help your organisation.
This workshop and follow up sessions are all delivered free as part of the SME Competitiveness Programme, funded by the EU Regional Development Fund.
