This practical course will help you to expand and improve your use of LinkedIn. It has been designed to be interactive and we will use a number of case studies from local companies and big brands to demonstrate who is using the tools well and what they are doing. You will learn the latest practices to engage with customers in this social arena, to generate business leads and build relationships with your target audiences online.

By the end of the training you will be able to:

  • Understand what LinkedIn is and why people use it
  • Build your professional brand on LinkedIn
  • Create a search friendly profile that is 100% complete
  • Build your audience and attract followers
  • Publish content to maximise engagement

If you have a little knowledge of LinkedIn and would like to advance your knowledge and skills then this course is for you. It will benefit aspirational social media users across all sectors and business types.

    A word from Kate:

    I formed AKU Training in January 2014 and I’m now excited to be working with individuals and organisations across Northern Ireland and beyond to develop knowledge and skills for career enhancement and organisation success.  It’s those ‘lightbulb moments’ on a training course that inspire me.  When a participant stops in their tracks and says “why didn’t I know this before? or “That will really change how I do x, y or z”.  That’s where my buzz comes from, knowing it’s really worked. 

    I'm the lead trainer for a number of courses: 

    • Effective Report Writing
    • Interpersonal Skills
    • Proofreading
    • Event Management
    • Time Management
    • Marketing Fundamentals and Marketing Management
    • LinkedIn Training

    I believe our success at AKU comes from four key areas:


    Our training is not theory based from a book. It's fun, engaging and practical. It deals with real challenges and provides templates and tools for immediate improvement.



    We're not academics. We are people that have experienced your role and challenges ... for many years before we became trainers.



    We are also expert trainers with vast experience of sharing our knowledge in the most effective way to transfer that knowledge to you.



    We want to help you to develop the skills that you need. That's why we’ll keep in touch happily answer any ongoing queries you may have after the training.
