The days of the rubber-chicken networking lunch where you waste time sitting next to someone with whom you have absolutely nothing in common are over, along with the days of desperately going through old business cards trying to find that contact you remember meeting at the tradeshow six months ago! Linked In guru Wayne Breitbarth’s shortcuts will expand your network of meaningful business contacts and help you stay in touch with your network more easily.
As CEO of Power Formula, Wayne is a CPA by profession, yet has become one of the foremost experts in Linked In as a result of the school of hard knocks during the recession. His AHA! Moment came when he learned how to use Linked In as a tool to identify and quickly close more business in his commercial furniture business. Since then, he’s used it as a hiring tool, and as a way to broaden his network and sphere of influence, speaking to over 40,000 business people at events held by Inc. Magazine, the American Marketing Association, and others.
With colorful examples from his own experience and those of the many other companies he’s helped develop Linked In business strategies for, Wayne debunks some of the typical challenges of “not enough time” and shows the bottom-line impact of Linked In done well. He candidly identifies the pitfalls and stumbles often made by new users, so that you’ll never find yourself making a Linked In faux pas. Best yet, he’s put all of his wisdom into a free toolkit for listeners!
