“Sure, I have a LinkedIn,” is easy to say, and a profile is a cinch to set up. But how can a professional take an average profile or company page to the next level on Oman’s fastest-growing professional platform?
The Oman American Business Center (OABC) hosted its first-ever LinkedIn training session for executives and business people in Oman on Tuesday, October 20, from 4 pm – 5 pm.
The session, entitled ‘LinkedIn Hacks with Mohammed Al Tamami’ helped equip leaders and businesses as they leverage LinkedIn for their daily work life and business.
The online event was open to both OABC Members and guests from the public, and addressed several topics, including why and how LinkedIn is different from other social media platforms; the basics of LinkedIn, how to create a clear LinkedIn strategy; understanding social media analytics, and troubleshooting challenges.
“Equipping individuals with clarity and getting people more comfortable with themselves as they leverage LinkedIn for their purposes is by far the most important and foundational aspect of this webinar and conversation,” says Mohammed Al Tamami, the main partner and presenter.
Mohammed Al Tamami is a Media Planning & Strategy graduate who spent 10+ years of his career working on global consulting and advisory assignments on innovation, technology and strategy, and is the Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer of a young and upcoming financial technology start-up that provides AI-driven capabilities for the financial services industry.
“We are extremely excited to support our members and guests by covering a topic that is especially appropriate for 2020. Like it or not, we’re living in a new digital world of ZOOM and online networking. As the use of LinkedIn continues to grow in Oman and the region, every one of us has room to improve our strategy and tactics. As always, we are looking to help our members — CEO’s, business owners and other professionals— grow their networks and their business, to enhance their profiles, expand their reach, and make essential connections — in this case, online,” says Rebecca Olson, Executive Director of the OABC.
All members of the OABC received a free one-to-one consultation service with Mohammed Al Tamami after the session.
