The Power of LinkedIn

ThePowerofLinkedIn-cover-lowresBefore another year goes by, I almost forgot to mention that I got another book published: The Power of LinkedIn! It is my latest book together with Jan Vermeiren. This book is also very unique, because it is published with one of the biggest publishers in the world: HarperCollins and more specifically HarperCollinsIndia. Why? This book is specifically written for the Indian market! Professionals in India make up the largest group (after the USA of course) on LinkedIn. We are using examples of local Indian businesses and tailored all practical elements to the Indian market. Enjoy!

AmCham in Hong Kong

The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Hong Kong invited me to speak at a breakfast workshop on “How to Really Use LinkedIn“.

It will be the first time that a Certified LinkedIn Trainer gives a LinkedIn session in Asia. Quite frankly, it will be also my first visit to Hong Kong. 🙂

Today more and more professionals are turning to LinkedIn to network, find talent and business, among others. But do they know the most efficient ways to use LinkedIn? What are the fundamental principles and strategies in maximizing the utilization of your LinkedIn account? These are the topics I’ll mainly talk about.

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, enroll for the event on the 17th of May. Or you could get in touch to see what I could do for your company.


What are other people saying about me?

Whatever you do, it is important to listen to your customers. On top of that, it is also key to receive testimonials, because it gives potential clients a realistic impression of who you are andwhat you do. I am so thankful that I have so many great clients and happy participants. Just to let you know what others are saying about me, you can find here several testimonials. There’s only one way to find out for yourself and that’s of course signup for one (or more) of my events 🙂 I am currently on tour in New Zealand.

“‘Genius Shortcuts is for me : working more efficiently – to the point – logical – easy and immediately applicablea lot of timesavings thanks to a focused approach on dealing with the information overload.”
Eve Deprez – architect en professor Theories of Architecture

“The Genius Shortcuts training has a reasonable high pace, making it easy to stay focused. A lot of “Wow”, “OMG”, “Aha” moments, with a clear sense of our every day business reality. Bert smoothly answers every question and deals effortlessly with the resistance (to change). It was also sufficiently Mac oriented and Bert has a great, positive “Consumers Union”-like attitude.”
