Linkedin Made Easy is a 'How to Guide' written for those who want to be able to use the resources that this fabulous Professional Social Network has to offer more effectively and to greater benefit for themselves, their business or their company. Whether you are a solo professional looking to forge alliances with others who can help you achieve your goals and ambitions; the marketing director of a large multi-national conglomerate, a small business owner or a student looking for their first job; Linkedin offers something for each of you to help you achieve your goals. But, all too often people simply add their CV and hope for the best; occasionally getting involved when they see others doing something, but not quite sure about why they are doing it. And when the rewards aren't forthcoming, they give it up as a lost cause and something that doesn't work. With a handy set of 'Recipes for Success' for every occasion, you will soon be developing your personal strategy to help you to achieve your goals.
I am the author of eight non-fiction books about both business and women's health, one novel and one short story. I've also edited one anthology of winning entries to the Hysteria 2012 Writing Competition. I'm also a social entrepreneur and the Founder and CEO of one of the most influential websites for women having a hysterectomy. The Hysterectomy Association has been online since 1996 and morphed into itself in 1997. Over the years it has supported millions of women by providing them with impartial and timely information, as well as giving them access to a support network that spans the globe.
My day job as a social media strategist means I try to remove the mystique and fear from social media for the clients and businesses I work with. The biggest bulk of my work is in delivering the Social Media Professional Development training programme I've created, a job that regularly causes me to re-evaluate what I know and thinks about the way the Internet works.
If you'd like to meet me, you can often find me lurking at conferences, seminars and presentations either on or off the stage.
I live in rural West Dorset with her partner Steve and have no kids, dogs or cats and have no plans to acquire any either.
