Welcome to episode 174, this week I want to return to a subject close to my heart and also one that I think is really important to all of us.
Interesting Stuff I Saw This Week
LinkedIn launch a new ‘Welcome to the team’ prompt
Last Friday I had a wonderful day with three other LinkedIn Trainers in the UK.
We had a really productive day sharing ideas and expertise in a very open ‘nothing to lose, everything to gain’ atmosphere. If you get the chance to get together with your competitors, take it. You will gain a lot from the experience.
On Sunday I attended the start of the Round the World Clipper race. I really knew very little about it beforehand but I found the whole thing incredibly inspirational and it’s really helped me get some new focus into my business.

Company Page Followers Hack
It’s very annoying that LinkedIn prevent us from seeing who are followers are but thanks to Glen Smith I have a cool hack to show you.
It’s a useful hack but my advice is to focus all your engagement efforts on your personal page anyway.
Is this poor communication?
This fascinates me. Is this good communication or not? Is it good design by LinkedIn? What are they hoping to achieve by this?
A Focus on Youth
This week I chat with John Morley about the work he has been doing with school leavers via the National Citizen Scheme in the UK.
I would strongly encourage you to spend some time with your teenage kids, family members or family friends and encourage them to think about LinkedIn. You could be doing them a real favour.
