Brookfield, Wis., March 23, 2015 – The Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce (GBCC) presents the second of the three-part “Using LinkedIn to Build Your Business and Your Brand,” series on understanding LinkedIn concepts for your business, on Wednesday, April 8, 2015. The session runs from 7:30am to 9:30am.

Carol White, President & CEO of GBCC said, “Attendance at the first session was so big that we’ve had to move to a larger venue, and we thank Ottawa University for stepping up to accommodate our educational program. LinkedIn has become an everyday word for people in the business world. GBCC is an organization centered on helping our member businesses work smarter, so this series is the perfect fit.”

“Many people have dabbled in LinkedIn, throwing together a profile, so they are at least at the table, but it is so much more than that – and this series is geared to help wherever you are on that spectrum. And, as always, there is the opportunity to meet other business people that are engaged,” continued White.
