I recently attended Links2Leads Stage 2 training course in Reading and I was really happy about the outcome. I learnt new tactics to promote my businesses and be more visible on LinkedIn. I highly recommend Rachel Tombs of Links2Leads training courses to everyone looking to develop their business further on.

I attended Rachel’s LinkedIn Stage 1 training course having set up my profile some time ago, but not really known how to use it. I felt that I was trying to navigate without a map or GPS, but Rachel helped me get a better feel for how LinkedIn works and how to use it to best advantage.
Rachel is a calm and patient teacher, who presents the material in a logical progression and explains each point clearly. I left fired with enthusiasm for LinkedIn and feeling that I had a powerful tool at my fingertips. Rachel provided excellent aftercare when I got stuck with a technical problem after the course and she has got me back on track. I would highly recommend Links2Leads to anyone wanting to get to grips with LinkedIn or to optimise their use of it to find leads.

As a total novice regarding LinkedIn I found the training Rachel provided extremely helpful. The way in which she delivered the training was what made all of the difference. I wasn't entirely comfortable with the idea of using LinkedIn at all, I didn't have a Facebook account at the time either, but I learned that it is a really useful tool in building my business. So, although I am just starting out I am beginning to use the knowledge Rachel shares in her training. It is really worth doing. I would highly recommend Rachel's services to other people who want to use LinkedIn as a way to grow their business! Thanks Rachel

Rachel's advice has been pivotal in promoting our business and getting our message out to the LinkedIn community. She made time to understand our business and helped us develop strategies to get the right message out, at the right time, to our potential customers!

I worked alongside Rachel for just under a year. Throughout that time Rachel used LikedIn so effectively that she delivered a number of new business transactions purely as a result of effective networking. Rachel has the ability to build lasting and effective relationships with those she comes into contact with, often using platforms such as LinkedIn to provide an introduction. Rachel has the ability to view a business holistically and to see the potential for new business in sectors that are not obvious at first. It was a privilege for me to work alongside Rachel.

Rachel is very professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. Rachel has completed and optimized my linkedIn profile and delivered exactly what she promised and more. Rachel actually has got me excited about LinkedIn which says a lot about how passionate she is about what she does. I am very pleased with both the personal service and finished results.
Rachel has offered me so much support thorough out and discussing my business with her gave me more direction with my business goals, how I want to help my customers and what I want to achieve. I have also received training after the profile was optimised and have found all the hints and tips to be invaluable.
LinkedIn is finally making sense. I look forward to putting all the training into practice. I can highly recommend Rachel.
Laura KnightBusiness Development Manager at Ingo Ltd, providing innovative and cost effective Business IT Solutions
A Linked In profile, is a brilliant but time consuming necessity as far as being a professional is concerned and also for raising brand awareness. As a start-up company, we knew it was imperative to add ourselves and the company onto Linked in. She came in to the offices to learn a bit about what our company do and understand the message we are trying to portray. Rachel has a clear skill for copywriting with the added bonus of understanding the minefield, Linked In, so was able to go away and produce my SEO heavy profile within one week. Something that would have no doubt taken me months to get around to. Passing the responsibility on to Rachel was a weight off my mind and it allowed me to concentrate on laying the foundations for a successful start-up company.

There are lots of providers offering workshops or courses on LinkedIn (often with a hefty price tag!). You may attend these and be inspired by the content but then walk away thinking – how does it apply to me? Perhaps you forgot to ask that question because you did not want to look silly or the course was too fast paced. Having personalised, tailored training ensures that you really are maximising your use of LinkedIn to get real and sustainable business and leave you confident about achieving your objectives.
Benefits of my LinkedIn Training
My clients constantly tell me that they find the tailored, one-to-one approach extremely beneficial for the following reasons.
I can answer your questions in a non-pressurised environment.
Cost and time-effective
As training is bespoke to your personal and professional needs, I can cover in a short space of time what you may learn on a full day’s generic LinkedIn training. Generic courses have to cater for all levels of LinkedIn users. But with my training I can ensure you learn exactly what is relevant for you and don’t waste time on topics that you don’t need!
Ongoing LinkedIn support and coaching
I work with most of my clients on an ongoing monthly basis as they realise the importance of using LinkedIn as a vital social selling tool to maximise their business revenue and generate new leads.
You may also like a LinkedIn support package, which provides for a few hours’ email or telephone support after your training session. This helps with any further technical queries, ensuring that you keep working on your strong and effective LinkedIn presence.
