The event will be hosted live with private zoom registration links for active Roundtable and WWS professional members.  At 1:50 p.m. site log-ins open.  At 2:00 p.m., Roundtable leaders will cover brief announcements and introductions, followed by a lively conversation.  Interactive chat Q&A will include a confidential option.  Additional resources and an on-demand event recording will be available for WWS professional members after the seminar.

Ms. Holian commented, “As the top platform used by business professionals to advance their career, LinkedIn is the most valuable tool on the market. Yet, with over 100 changes made to the platform in the past year and competing demands for leaders’ limited time, it’s a challenge to keep up and know what to prioritize.”
