Event Details

LinkedIn isn’t only for companies, business development and job searches. Non-profits are already using LinkedIn to:

  • Talent, connections and Board Members
  • Network and for fundraising
  • Amplify their existing resources
  • Expand their reach beyond their immediate friendsGive their organizations more visibility and credibility

 Jan Wallen will show you how to do this and more.

LinkedIn is one of the best tools around -- if you know the right things to do.

In this interactive presentation, Jan Wallen shows you how to turn LinkedIn into a powerful tool for your non-profit. Jan will give you LinkedIn success stories and mini-case-studies. You’ll learn how to start using it for your organization step-by-step, plus the best strategies and insider secrets you can use right away.

You’ll learn how to:

  1. Choose the best networking philosophy: Quality Network or Quantity Network
  2. Create an effective LinkedIn profile and Company Page so people who are looking for you on LinkedIn will find you. You have more visibility and credibility
  3. Connect strategically plus LinkedIn etiquette – Who to connect with, what to say when you invite people to connect, and what to do when you get invitations you’re not sure whether to accept or not
  4. Leverage your connections and turn them into opportunities for your organization
  5. Use LinkedIn to find Board Members

You’ll know exactly what to do for the next 30 days with your Action Steps map. Jan will also give you resources that you can refer to over and over again to keep the learning going.

Plus, timesaver tips so you have more time for yourself, your family and friends. If you’ve heard Jan before, you know there’s much more – she’s generous with her time, information and insights. There will be plenty of time for Jan to answer your questions.
