An Evening with “The LinkedIn Guy”, Gregg Burkhalter – LinkedIn: Personal Branding for Professional Success

05/04/2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

We’ve got a special treat for our annual (pre) Cinco de Mayo on Thursday, May 4th at PPR! “The LinkedIn Guy”, Gregg Burkhalter will explain why it’s so very important to have a strong personal brand. Your personal brand will follow you throughout your professional career. It’s a lot easier to build your personal brand correctly the first time than to try and rebuild it after you’ve damaged it.

LinkedIn is the digital home of your personal brand. Facebook might show your personality but LinkedIn is where your personal (professional) brand is nurtured and grown.

Gregg will show you what makes a strong LinkedIn profile and explain how to use LinkedIn to develop your personal brand. You will leave with an outline of what you should be doing daily on LinkedIn to build relationships and strengthen your personal brand. Join us for a very special evening with a local LinkedIn EXPERT, festive food and friendly freelance pros!

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.

Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.

So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
