March has been quite a busy month. On the 10th I delivered a seminar on LinkedIn for Linguists at the Language Show Scotland in Glasgow. There was a lot of interest, so for the benefit of those unable to attend I have turned turn the talk into a book, which you can download here. If you've read it already, let me know what you think! Tweet me @AlbaSort.
Later in March I had I had the opportunity to network with some of you at the CIOL Members’ Day in London, where I also spoke about social media and personal branding (you'll find the slides here). The venue had the most amazing views from the loos, to the point that in the ladies where there were three of us with our phone cameras out taking pictures of Big Ben.
The month ended in style with another Marketing for Linguists workshop in Glasgow, organised by the CIOL’s Scottish Society. It was an intense session with lots of content to cover, all around the topic of how to compete in a global world. Thanks to those who attended! If you would like to know when the next one will be taking place, stay tuned.
