But do not fret because even with some minor tweaks, your digital brand can come alive quickly and painlessly. Anna Baird, Former Lead for Professional Services at LinkedIn, knows a thing or two about how to ignite your profile and create a personal touch that get’s you noticed. Anna’s session will explore everything from profile basics to writing long form posts, digital career-pathing research and figuring out your worth as you take on your career journey. Whether you are early in your career, or finding your next role or even considering ways to develop your skills, this session will help you leverage practical takeaways. Anna’s workshop style pushes you to think outside the box and if you wanted to see some feedback from her recent speaking events, just look on her profile, she is keen to walk the talk too.
If you have questions upfront, and want to send some thoughts to Anna ahead of the session, she welcomes your input. Please email us at [email protected] with any pre-event asks or thoughts.
