LinkedIn Answers

So at Eat. Drink. Tweet. in Penticton this past weekend, I taught a session on LinkedIn. As mentioned in my previous post, I built a Canadian Wine Group on LinkedIn, and it now has 26 members.

LinkedIn or Bust … uh, literally.

I’m putting the finishing touches on my presentation for Eat. Drink. Tweet. in Penticton, British Columbia. It’s all about LinkedIn.
