21st Century LinkedIn Team Surgeries
Outline Proposal for LinkedIn Training Webinar and Microsurgery, January 2021
21st Century <strong>LinkedIn Team Training</strong> <br/>and 1-2-1 Profile Microsurgery
The Doctor is In: Make your team <strong>visible legible and credible</strong> on LinkedIn
What are you aiming to <strong>achieve?</strong>
What exactly are you and your team aiming for through LinkedIn? And are you reaching your goals?
You're all on LinkedIn. But why?
More and more, smart organisations are using LinkedIn as an effective marketing and sales channel.
As part of this process, the appearance, attitude, knowledge and engagement of your top executives and key staff is pivotal to your success. Everyone on your team needs to act professionally, and use their time on the platform effectively.
That's where I come in.
I offer my services to support organisations seeking to improve the LinkedIn presences of its executives and other staff. This happens in order to help your reputation, increase your visibility, and impact your bottom line. I have focused my work exclusively on the LinkedIn platform since 2006. So I do know what I am talking about.
You may be aiming to —
Educate and train your team on the value of LinkedIn and how to use it to best effect
Give your team the tools they need to build a top class profile, build the right following, and reach their target audience
Receive content guidance for LinkedIn — on what works, and what doesn’t
Deliver consistency across your team's LinkedIn Profiles in terms of messaging and branding
In order to achieve this, I can deliver bespoke group or individual training on using LinkedIn effectively online. I can follow this by in-depth one-to-one consultations for key staff. As an option, I can work with your team one-to-one to rewrite the key elements of their profiles. Or even rework their profiles from top to bottom.
Here's a common format:
1) Online Presentation —
Webinar presentation followed by Questions & Answers.
This can be supported by the full presentation being available online in an interactive document similar to this publication. This document can include access to additional tips and advice, as well as downloading of visual assets such as your company's logos and custom LinkedIn header images. It can also contain 'boilerplate' company descriptions. This can also be the place for appointment bookings to have follow-up one-to-one consultations.
2) One to One Consultations –
Individuals can then book 60 Minute or 20-Minute Profile 'Microsurgeries' to suit their diaries. These will be delivered remotely by phone, Zoom, Google Meet or Skype for your team members. This allows a one to one focus and the delivery of a personal 'prescription' based on an individual's LinkedIn use patterns, profile, and seniority.
Anytime, anywhere: Delivered anywhere in the world remotely, across all timezones.
And is this the time to mention my unique 100% 1,00 day money back satisfaction guarantee? Perhaps.

- I welcome the opportunity to discuss the message focus, timing, content and surgery mix with you to agree on how to best deliver your organisation's learning and marketing objectives.
I look forward to hearing from you, and to helping you to deliver a stimulating, informative and effective package for your team.
"David delivered an excellent package for us that started with an inspiring and very enjoyable group presentation which got all of our diverse team aligned with a common sense of purpose and focus.
He followed that up by providing detailed 40-minute remote phone and zoom consultations with everyone on the team, delivered one to one, covering the US to the UK.
He was also able to spend time one on one with our founder and CEO to assist and guide his social media activity.
As a result of his work, we feel that our collective profiles on LinkedIn are far more focused and cohesive. We also have more confidence and structure to how we all interact on LinkedIn to help build our audience, and inform and keep close to our existing and future customers.
I can highly recommend his LinkedIn services - he's knowledgeable, professional, flexible and highly attentive."

"David is a honey pot, he can draw people together, enthrall them, persuade people to listen and participate in events or listen to him speak.
I have worked with him on numerous occasions and he can make interviews interesting, words make sense when spoken - he translates technical aspects into real life normal words.
He delivers on time and executes with a professionalism that is second to none, whilst maintaining a clear focus on the audience and goals that are to be met."
