Event Recap: Getting Your LinkedIn Profile Noticed

Pamela Bennett

On 16 July, HBA Albuquerque in conjunction with the HBA Southwest Region had the pleasure of hosting a webinar to highlight and review “Getting Your LinkedIn Profile Noticed” with experts Pamela Bennett, founder and CEO of Joytrek 153 Enterprises LLC and Yolanda Smith, founder and CEO of Branding 4 Success, for tips and tricks to make your profile highlight your best you.

Yolanda started the webinar by explaining personal branding is “what people say about you when you leave the room.” As the internet and business world continues to evolve, your representation is no longer limited to your business card. To highlight your expertise in your field and advance your career, you must be comfortable highlighting your value using social media platforms, such as LinkedIn.

During the second half of the webinar, Pamela did an exceptional demonstration of a LinkedIn profile by sharing her personal LinkedIn profile. With this demonstration, HBA members and supporters were able to follow Pamela, screen by screen, to enhance their own profiles. Participants were encouraged to follow along as Pamela navigated through professional interest areas to highlight your interests and passions, such as passions for the HBA and Harvard Business Review which help you capture broader audiences. Furthermore, Pamela encouraged attendees to follow “# tags” as a way to keep up with current trends and information. 

Yolanda has generously offered registrants a free digital blueprint to increase their brand visibility.

Thank you to the HBA Albuquerque board and HBA leadership for the support to make this event a success. Additionally, we would like to thank Pamela and Yolanda for an informative and interactive webinar. We greatly appreciate the impact that you had on our professional development and hope to have a follow-up program around “Personal Branding and How to Strategically Grow a LinkedIn Network” in the future.
