… find the right connections on LinkedIn

April 5, 2013 at 10:03 am 2 comments

Although I’m no LION, I’m a big believer in not limiting my connections on LinkedIn to colleagues and customers. I find those outside my sector help to challenge my preconceptions and stimulate original thought, and you never know who knows who…

This is my bite-sized 5 ideas to join with new connections on LinkedIn – which 5 new people will you connect to today?

  1. Alumni – university, professional courses, post-graduate courses, sports teams, CPD courses
  2. Interesting people that you’ve met at events
  3. Interesting people from your personal life – friends of friends, parents of your children’s friends, book club friends, sports club members
  4. People who are connected to your connections and are interested in the same groups as you, or live in the same town, or your first degree connections think you will get on with
  5. People who you’ve connected to online and have enjoyed chatting to – on twitter, facebook, pinterest, goodreads, quora etc

If you want to learn more about leveraging your LinkedIn account, I’m hosting a day-long training event aimed at professionals.  More details here.
