Youth Workshop - building your brand
Working with a London based charity FutureVersity, I created and delivered a tailored digital workshop for their student base, aged 16 - 18 years. This workshop focused on their digital brand and creating awareness for online activity and promoting their skill set and gaining confidence when using online tools such as LinkedIn.
This was a fun, hands-on and interactive workshop, which introduced the students to LinkedIn and understanding how promoting your profile in a positive and professional manner can play a part in increasing your job hunting and networking skills.
The workshop focused on an introduction to LinkedIn and how this differs to other social networking sites. There was a strong emphasis on profile photographs, headlines, bio's, skill set and understanding power of networking. We also focused on content sharing and how to do this appropriately on a business networking site with a few examples of 'epic fails' which the students enjoyed.
I'm really pleased I went on this workshop, it taught me a lot about LinkedIn, I'm not sure where else I would have got this information.
"I really enjoyed learning how to use LinkedIn properly, and will use it to help me find a job in the future."
