<strong>The Doctor is In.</strong> Meet David Petherick...
I am 24 years old with 35 years of experience (aka 59). I have been writing LinkedIn profiles, advising organisations on LinkedIn marketing & advertising, and speaking and training on the effective use of LinkedIn since 2006.
"I was lucky to have David speak at my very first 24 Stories Conference and he delivered a fantastic keynote that people really learned from. David also gave two great workshops in the afternoon of the conference and the feedback from those attending was excellent.If you are looking for someone to talk about LinkedIn at your event look no further than David.On top of his expertise on LinkedIn David is also one of the nicest guys I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with, I was blown away by his engagement with everyone at the conference and with his replies to people online after the event was finished. Looking forward to having David back in Cork again in the future."
