This course is designed to help attendees get the most out of the ‘professional social media’ platform. LinkedIn is one of the most used social channels in the MENA region, facilitating the off line love of networking in the online arena. LinkedIn has been traditionally viewed as an online CV. Those still with that opinion are leaving business, revenue and opportunity on the table, for themselves, and the brands they represent.

They will understand the role LinkedIn plays in establishing their own brands and the brands they represent as credible thought leaders in their market space. They will also have a number of strategies to execute to develop business, generate leads and put their messaging in front of their ideal customer at the exact time they go looking for them on the platform.
