Mastering LinkedIn: Advanced Techniques and Insider Secrets (Keith Warrick)

There will be over 50 workshops at the 32nd annual BDPA Technology Conference in Philadelphia later this month. Keith Warrick will be a presenter at two of them ... including one entitled, 'Mastering LinkedIn: Advanced Techniques and Insider Secrets'.

Keith has over 10 years of Information Technology professional experience in various roles from technical writer, quality assurance analyst and project manager to business analyst in the industries of telecommunications, information technology services and insurance. He has been involved in the implementation and training of software solutions to working directly with external clients in the development of custom software solutions. Prior to working in IT, he spent time in operations analysis and marketing. He currently serves as a Business Analyst for a large insurance broker.

He is also an active member of the International Institute of Business Analysis, the professional organization for business analysts. Keith holds a MBA degree in Marketing from Clark Atlanta University and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Lincoln University.

This workshop is designed to enhance the LinkedIn user experience of current users by taking it to the next level through the introduction of advanced features and techniques designed to get the maximum value out of using LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a professional social networking site that has grown in popularity since starting up in 2003. This workshop begins where LinkedIn – Getting Started with Professional Social Networking ends.

This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of the site as well as introduce attendees to advanced features that many users do not use or know exist that includes:
  • How To Punch Up Your LinkedIn Profile in Order to Be Found by Hiring Managers and Companies
  • Advanced Strategies for Connecting
  • Advanced Strategies for Building your Expertise and Becoming a Recognized Expert
  • Advanced Ways to Use Groups
  • How to Use Tools/Plug-Ins/Applications
  • New functionality such as Answers, posting jobs and applying for them and finding company information
I attended Keith's workshop on LinkedIn Network last year in Raleigh NC. It was excellent. I highly recommend all BDPA IT professionals to pre-register for both of Keith's conference workshops!
