Most people use Google many times each day. What if there were a comparable tool for finding people? Actually, there is, although most people don’t use it in this way. It’s LinkedIn, a network of 450 million business professionals. In this engaging 60-minute session, entrepreneur and Vistage Speaker of the Year, Dave Nelsen, provides dozens of actionable takeaways that you can apply to marketing, sales, and competitive analysis.
