So, when they suggested that I host a podcast about LinkedIn for the FIR Podcast Network, I was honoured.
You see, I’ve been a speaker, author and LinkedIn Maven and Power Connector for more than 7 years, and truly believe in how the platform can change business lives. I’m also a Pay it Forward advocate and use LinkedIn to help others on a regular basis.
During that time, I have used LinkedIn to secure two different corporate jobs, land countless numbers of speaking gigs and meet some of the most interesting people in the world.
For some, LinkedIn is a massive, 240 million person social media network that is both fascinating and intimidating. My goal with the new podcast is to highlight the fascinating and make it less intimidating.
Each week, on FIR’s Linked Conversations, I’ll show you how to use LinkedIn, talk with a guest about their experience in leveraging the platform and bring you a few tips on making the most of the most powerful social business tool on the web.
So join me for Linked Conversations right here on the FIR Podcast Network!
