Event Details


Win LinkedIn with Credibility, Search-ability and Connect-ability

By now, most of us have a LinkedIn page. However, many of us don't have a LinkedIn purpose.

The primary driver of success for all three of the aforementioned values starts with a professional, content-rich and engaging profile.

With updates and new content opportunities happening all the time, Astek wants to help you discover a LinkedIn strategy and offer ideas on making it happen.

Mike Dwyer, board member of Social Media Club, Chicago and executive for Vitamin T - a talent agency for digital creatives

They will talk through their personal LinkedIn strategies and bring a variety of perspectives to the session. With all the great info being thrown around, feel free to bring a computer and follow along with your own profile!
