“How to Develop Your Professional LinkedIn Brand” –
Presentation by LinkedIn’s Yumi Wilson

Thanks go to Board Member Tom Wilmer for arranging this meeting and luncheon.

 May’s meeting features a presentation by Yumi Wilson, a corporate communications manager for LinkedIn and associate professor of journalism at San Francisco State University, and a presentation by Morro Bay Tourism.

 During the session, you’ll learn why it’s so important to create or update your Company Page, optimize your LinkedIn Profile, share personal updates and get involved in Groups. You’ll also learn about some of LinkedIn’s newest features (including the new Publishing Platform). If there’s time, Yumi will show you how to use searches to find important connections and build your professional network. And of course, you’ll learn how to go stealth ­ just in case you don’t want others to know you’re checking them out or looking for a new job.
