Bond St Special 2nd Sept: LinkedIn MasterclassAug 11
Learn how to make LinkedIn work for you: “Connecting, collecting or cashing in?”
BRX Bond Street, RAF Club, 128 Piccadilly, Friday 2 Sept, 7.15-10am
You are cordially invited to attend a special BRX Bond Street networking meeting, incorporating a LinkedIn workshop with James Potter, aka ‘The Linked In Man’. Learn how the world’s largest professional network works – and how to use it to reach more prospects, engage more clients & make better use of it in a little time.
As the world’s largest business-related social network, with over 120 million users, LinkedIn offers a unique business tool. Yet too often people do what they think is right on LinkedIn without really understanding how it works, why they might want to be there and who might be on it that they might find interesting. Our Linked In masterclass aims to show you how to make LinkedIn work for you, whether in terms of more sales, new projects or a new role. A passionate networker, James Potter started using LinkedIn in his former corporate life as a Sales Director, where it enabled him to gain over £10 million in extra sales (he achieved 30% of new business directly via LinkedIn) and 2 jobs. Since launching his LinkedIn training & consultancy business, The Linked In Man, James has gone on to help all sizes of companies, from corporates like IBM and Dell to SMEs, leverage LinkedIn to generate new business and opportunities.
For our normal meeting fee of £20 you’ll enjoy:
- Networking (7.15-8.45am) – With one of London’s liveliest business networking groups (includes full English breakfast).
- LinkedIn masterclass (8.45-10am) – Learn how to use the LinkedIn platform to the full as an effective tool for growing your business or advancing your career.
Topics covered will include:
- Expanding your network of connections to meet new contacts, experts, potential clients or peers
- How to leverage your existing contacts to reach the people you need – so you never have to cold call again
- Managing your personal brand, to make yourself visible in your market for your current role or to find your next role
- Tips on everything from profile writing to joining relevant groups
“James has transformed our use of LinkedIn. There is so much powerful stuff hidden ‘under the bonnet’ that, without James’s help, would go unexploited. I would highly recommend this course.” Hughes Ellard
“Excellent course. James is not only entertaining, but very pragmatic in how you can use LinkedIn to help develop your business. Well done. Highly recommended.” Best Practice Group plc
“James ran an in-house course for my team and I lost count of the ‘wow’ moments! He made LinkedIn come alive for all of us – his knowledge and humour made the event hugely enjoyable and a great CPD activity. Within 24 hours after the event one of my consultants had gained 2 high level meetings – a great result!” The Consultancy Company
“James has a unique service offering for clients in this field, the ability to help you articulate and project the best version of yourself to others through the relatively new forum of social media. With an excellent command of the lexicon of business/commercial language and in depth knowledge of the tool, James in a few short sessions can empower some profound changes. If you are you time poor and juggling competing priorities and want an impactful presence on LinkedIn, contact James.” Dell
