Leslie-March-2011-150x150Recently Leslie (Leslie On LinkedIn) has been working with her brother’s company FacilityQuest (

Leslie will discuss some really cool things she’s been learning about LinkedIn related to her work with FacilityQuest, specifically addressing questions such as:

+ Why pay money to LinkedIn for promotion?
+ What are the options for sponsoring?
+ Organic vs. sponsored, what does it achieve?
+ How about sponsoring updates vs. buying ads?
+ How do you target your campaign?
+ What’s the difference between paying for impressions vs. click-throughs?

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
