LinkedIn Training: learn how to use LinkedIn to generate board opportunities


LinkedIn should be the cornerstone of your board search efforts we will teach you how to create new relationships that lead to board positions.

As a Top 10 Australian LinkedIn user with over 23,000 connections I can confirm that LinkedIn has some great functionality – namely it allows me to connect with individuals directly and provides an easy way to  keep in contact. But, most importantly it is a great way to do business – particularly for Non Executives or people aspiring to meet people in this space.

For these reasons, I believe that every director should maintain a complete and up to date LinkedIn profile. More than that they should have an active presence and put time aside to using it. However many people don’t know how to use LinkedIn effectively and many more don’t have the sort of profile that is going aid in their journey towards a board appointment.

LinkedIn is, I believe, a thinly veiled recruitment tool. Yes you can use it to develop new connections or find new opportunities but for the majority of users much of the action is about finding and connecting with people you either want to work with or hire. This works very much in your favour in your board search.

HOWEVER, to make LinkedIn work for you you need to know how to use it effectively. We will help you do just that.

Having used LinkedIn for over a decade and as Australia’s leading board recruitment expert I will teach you how not only to use LinkedIn effectively but also how to leverage it powerfully to gain a board appointment.
