How to get more out of the session:
Survey the participants as part of the registration on:
1) What are they curious about? What questions do they have?
2) Are you interested in getting a live profile review before the call? If so, copy your URL.
3) Including a shortlist of topics around LinkedIn that they can checkboxes on. Profiles, networking, how to reach out, banner image, recommendations, or endorsements.
Designate a moderator who knows your community
1) They will be able to pull out the most pressing questions
2) Hearing questions being read by someone who can relate to the participants will be more engaging

What Shaily's Clients Say
"Everybody loved the program. Your personality really came through. There was a great balance of humor.
I thought you were very easy to work with you. You followed up and offered a number of options. You did really well of asking exactly what I needed, what the expectations are, who's coming, how many people are coming, and stuff like that. You offer multiple options and digit pricing.You even offered to bring food from Chicago. You offered everything.
It was very positive from start to finish for me."
- Eric Love,
Director of Staff Diversity and Inclusion
University of Notre Dame
"The class and your teaching really gave me the confidence I needed to not only speak on social media at work more confidently but to be more curious and adventurous when it comes to social media at work and personally.
The passion and energy you brought to class each week was unmatched, and definitely a level I need to get on!
Definitely going to insert some energy and vibes into my LinkedIn profile.
I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot. Thank you again, Shaily!"
- Michelle Ricolcol
Student at The University of Chicago
Marketing Manager at Ravinia Festival
"Her sessions are high energy, fun, generate ideas about how you can build a social network, improve your online presence, and connect to industry.
I always say that while your resume may be amazing, the problem is the employer has not heard of you yet, Shaily teaches about how to close that last gap."
- Sidney Shapiro
Program Coordinator in Analytics and IT
"I think it was a great experience.
Shaily ironed out the expectations from the beginning.
She gave me everything I need in the description of the seminar and the bio she sent.
From there, a number of individuals signed up.
So there is an interest in leveraging LinkedIn and I thought [working with Shaily] was a smooth process."
- Maura Mitchell,Managing Director, Entrepreneurial Services
Women's Business Development Center
"I especially liked all the interactive activities and the shared Google doc activity that you used (I may be borrowing that technique if you don't mind ;).
I always enjoy the energy, enthusiasm, and expertise you bring to the classroom."
