Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in Consulting, networking | 0 comments

Today, after speaking at an event where 80% of the room was hardly leveraging LinkedIn at all, I thought I’d share the 10 things I do on LinkedIn each and every week as inspiration for others to do more on this powerful professional networking platform. If you start doing even just a few of these things, I bet you’ll see some new (and welcome) outreach or activity.
