Expert tips on using LinkedIn with Think Bespoke

Karen Hollenbach is the founder of Think Bespoke and revered as the 'LinkedIn Lady'.

In 2010, as a mother of two pre-schoolers, Karen took a brave step from corporate career professional to business owner in an effort to carve out a more flexible career, enabling her to leverage her skills and be present for her boys.

What began as a resume writing service, grew into LinkedIn profile writing for job seekers, and self-discovery workshops for professionals in the mid-stage of their career.

Karen is now one of Asia Pacific’s Top 10 LinkedIn Experts.

Karen shares with us how she started and grew her company, her insider tips and strategies on optimising your LinkedIn profile, expanding your network and content creation, as well as how to position yourself as an industry expert.
