For those of you who were at the last meeting where I talked about social networking on the Web, consider that to have been the appetizer …. the June 18th meeting will be the main course.

Our speaker will be Jan Wallen, the author of “Mastering LinkedIn in 7 Days or Less” and a LinkedIn Master.

Here’s a description of her talk ….

“Master LinkedIn to Grow Your Business”

Did you join LinkedIn and haven’t used it a lot because you didn’t know where to start or what to do?  Or wonder what it can do for you in growing your business? Or how people are really using LinkedIn and what their success stories are? 

Jan Wallen, a sales and LinkedIn Master and author of Mastering LinkedIn in 7 Days or Less, will show how you can use LinkedIn to grow your business.  And how you can build a network that you’ll use now and throughout your career. 

She demonstrates in a non-technical way and from a real person’s perspective how LinkedIn works and the Top 5 things you can do to make it work for your business goals.  You’ll have an Action Plan of specific steps to take to start using LinkedIn for yourself and your organization when you leave.  You will learn why 40+ million people are using LinkedIn, real LinkedIn Success Stories, the differences between LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.

Jan has 20 years experience with Fortune 500 and Big 5 firms, advising, mentoring, consulting and training C-level executives, partners and business owners.  She has helped thousands of professionals find success in their business and their careers.  Whether you’re a CEO, executive, salesperson or entrepreneur, Jan’s practical, positive approach and strategies give you all the tools, inspiration and confidence to reach your business and professional goals using LinkedIn.  Her style is energetic and engaging, and she delivers her message with straightforward clarity.

She publishes an eColumn (www.LinkedInWorks.com) with articles, tips, insights and advice from the Experts on how to use LinkedIn to find clients … in record time with LinkedIn.


The meeting takes place at the Westport Library. Doors open at 9AM with the opportunity to network, followed by a welcome at 9:15  and each attendee giving their “30 second elevator pitch” as an introduction. This is followed by the main topic and then additional time to network. The meeting concludes by about 11AM.
