I was very keen to attend James Potter’s LinkedIn Skills Update Workshop and I wasn’t disappointed.  My LI skills are average and I found this workshop educational,
stimulating and absorbing.  This Is partly due to James’s engaging presentation style, his corporate interpretation of this platform and his own very extensive experience in the corporate world.

Realising very quickly this workshop wasn’t just about personal profiles, the words to use and using advance search; it was more about knowing how to use LinkedIn as a referral platform.

The icing on the cake was understanding the extensive work James is doing on the ‘corporate profile’ area of the site ensuring that companies who seek his support show up professionally and able to engage quickly with prospective employees, clients or investors etc.

As a firm we are looking at how we can best coordinate our presence on LinkedIn to improve our interaction with existing and prospective clients.

A single session with James was all it took to be convinced that he really understands the importance of firm profiling as well as the value to us of using LinkedIn properly.

There’s much more to it than we realised and James made sure he understood us first – exactly as we like to do with our own clients.

Invaluable insights and a few neat tricks too!

I have known James now for about a year now. In that timeframe I have come to know he is an expert at using LinkedIn, and helping individuals and companies use it to achieve the maximum value.

I was on LinkedIn and had many connections but I never got a client out of that tool at that point.
James being an incredible business man gave me a few ‘basic’ tips and very shortly after I stared getting approaches from potential clients who in turn turned into clients.
I was amazed by the ability to do business without having to leave the office and I must admit, this is not down to linked in but it is down to James’s interpretation and outstanding business mind that has thought me how to use this simple tool effectively.
Since then I have been introducing James to a few privileged contacts of mine who have also been delighted with his incredible out view on business and once again, not just the introduction to linked in but also the incredible and effective methods of turning that tool into cash and success.

James’s teaching style is such that I thought I was in a one on one class, rather than a Company event with 12 other people. For me, LinkedIn will never be the same again, as it has moved from being, a nice to have, to a fundamental work tool for any sales and marketing focussed organisation. Thanks a bunch James.

James makes learning about LinkedIn and how it can work for you fun, entertaining and most importantly useful and as I am a technophobe that is no mean feat. In James hands LinkedIn becomes much more than a marketing tool for your company. He made me think about what company face I wanted to present to which market; made me think about how I worked; what I did; and most importantly how to communicate the essence of what I do best. I would thoroughly recommend it.

James was introduced to me as “someone you must meet”, intrigued and not knowing what to expect we met for a coffee. I could tell within minutes he was passionate about his role and helping others. His knowledge and command of the English language transitioned my profile from a corporate rigid feel to one of informative, openness and demonstrative. Without a doubt James will be back to see myself and the team here. I would recommend meeting him for a coffee, the best investment I have made.
