✓ the lack of career permanency that means the shelf life of an executive is now rarely more than two years

✓ how employees have so many choices in their career if they are willing to build career capital

✓ acknowledging that even though it's easier to connect with people, it's also more noisey and crowded out there

✓ the long term nature of building a significant professional network - it's not an overnight thing

✓ what makes LinkedIn the 'go to' social media platform vz Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for accounting professionals

✓ the factors that determine what will be successful in building a strong LinkedIn profile
