Many people have set up a LinkedIn profile, have a few connections but then what? This is a hands-on and interactive 3-hour webinar, which will help you to focus on getting the best out of LinkedIn and effectively network online.
What will I learn?
Networking is an essential skill for most business-people to get out into the world to create and maintain business relationships. The whole process can be a daunting chore and is therefore often not executed successfully! This webinar will give you the skills and help your confidence in any networking situation you find yourself in.
The first half of this webinar will include LinkedIn basics such as:
- An overview on the benefits and results you can expect.
- Building an effective profile page.
- Growing and nurturing relationships with your connections, who to connect with and why.
- Targeting your audience, market and identifying opportunities.
The second part of this webinar will cover effective networking including:
- How to create and practise your elevator pitch.
- How to prepare for your attendance at online and offline events.
- Exploring where and when you can network.
- What to do in events.
- How to leave conversations and move forwards.
- How to build relationships and follow up.
- Tips on how to maximise social media and online networking.
It is recommended to participate in the webinar using your laptop or a tablet in a web browser as the full functionality and capability of LinkedIn is best utilised on a laptop or PC.

A bit about your presenter:
This webinar is run by Rachel Sweet who runs her own business and has a number of years worth of experience, advising individuals on marketing and how to grow their business.
What attendees of this webinar say:
”The trainer Rachel was very friendly and had so much knowledge on LinkedIn and how to get the most from this platform. I have come away feeling inspired to want to connect with other individuals and businesses so that I can be of service to others whilst starting to seriously grow my own network. Rachel also gave lots of tips on how to write posts, join groups and start gaining as much traction on LinkedIn as possible. This was 3 hours very well spent and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of starting their own business. Thank you to Sue and the team at Cool Ventures for making this possible for me.”
