Contact decision makers directly – why LinkedIn doesn’t work (& what does)

Free session for experienced managers & executives in Europe who are currently looking for a job (or getting ready for it): “Contact decision makers directly – why LinkedIn doesn’t work (& what does)“.

LinkedIn is a great tool, but not the panacea for everything, including when contacting decision makers. That might seem counter-intuitive, especially when you think of how LinkedIn Premium promotes InMail and its efficiency. BUT: there are more effective ways of reaching out to those who have the power to hire you. If you are an executive those decision makers can include:
– Private Equity / Investment Funds
– supervisory boards
– private & family owners
– HQ-based executives
– regional senior managers
– board members
… depending on your own level of seniority.

During this interactive meeting, we’ll:
– make a case in favor of the direct approach
– show how it works (and how it doesn’t)
– which KPIs will be impacted if you do choose to go to LinkedIn
– how LinkedIn can be used differently

Think of this session as of an actual meeting, as there will be several opportunities to network. Be ready to fully engage & contribute. If you plan on passively listening, this is not for you. Everybody is expected to engage.
