“Professional’s Guide to Higher LinkedIn Rankings”

(Proven techniques for getting your profile to rank higher on LinkedIn searches)



David J. Lanners, MBA (Harvard)

As a pro-bono advisor/consultant and advisor to unemployed/underemployed professionals, David Lanners specializes in helping individuals get higher rankings in LinkedIn searches.   As an independent user who is not affiliated in any way with LinkedIn, Mr. Lanners was free to use his experience and skills to get his own profile to appear consistently among the top ten in any of more than three dozen key phrases.   The techniques he developed can be used by anyone who writes at a 9th-grade level and can count from one to one-hundred.   We will enjoy learning from real-life examples presented by a graduate of the Harvard Business School with early life experience-based qualifications from the school of hard knocks.

David will cover:
