Many thanks and warm regards

Hi Sue
Thank you for presenting at the AHRI Webinar this afternoon, it was great to hear you run through the content and tips. The thing most helpful was the confirmation of how important LinkedIn is for networking and the definite change in resourcing and recruitment with the stats that backed this up about profiles viewed.
Annette King

Hi Sue

Hi Sue
Thanks for the webinar today I found it very useful re improving my LinkedIn use :-). The things I took away were ‘photo, headline, summary’ – which I need to check on mine.  Also, how to access some of the settings to stop everyone being advised I have a new job every time I fix up a typo! The suggestion to export pdf profile and download contacts 3 monthly is also a good one and I will get onto that too. Leaving old email addresses and tagging people are also good advice.

I enjoyed your webinar this morning Sue, lots of good tips that I look forward to exploring. Your session has shown me how to complete my profile and connect to relevant professional groups. It’s also given me an appreciation of how using LinkedIn can promote HR as a profession. The webinar introduced me to how we might use LinkedIn for recruitment, with very useful information and also how to use the professional groups for networking and expanding my own knowledge base.
Thanks again Sue,
Wendy Hodson

Hi Sue, Just a quick word to say thanks for the AHRI presentation on LinkedIn yesterday. Always a few tips to pick up and appreciated your experience and generosity in sharing.

Hi Sue
I found the more technical pointers really useful – like being able to print a pdf of your profile (or somebody else’s) and use the statistics for something meaningful. All in all, this was a really useful session. Good value!
