Leveraging LinkedIn for Business Development
If you are in sales, HR, or operations, LinkedIn has created unique ways to leverage the power of its vast social network to achieve specific goals. Packaging sales professionals need to understand how to use LinkedIn both in passive and active sales strategies.
In the session “LinkedIn for Printing and Packaging Professionals,” on Thursday, October 24th at 1:00pm in Room C148, Adam Peek, senior account executive for WS Packaging, will offer strategies for using the social media platform to grow your business.
“I have grown my network to over 6,000 packaging and print connections in the past 18 months, and would like to share best practices in business development,” says Peek.
