Event Details

Southampton Group

6.00 pm refreshments and networking, with the event starting promptly at 6.30 pm and finishing around 8 pm


If the average person were to be asked what LinkedIn is, the likelihood is that they would say it is a job site.  Yet recruitment has never been a top three industry on LinkedIn, and is not a top three in any city in the UK!  LinkedIn’s research shows that 80% of people are on LinkedIn for professional use, but what sort of use does this mean?  Of course there are the obvious things like networking, sales and word of mouth, but then there are more creative purposes used by procurement, researchers, analysts and even spies (yes, LinkedIn has trained spies!). 

Come along to this session and learn about all the things you can do with LinkedIn.  Prepare to have your perception reset of how to think about LinkedIn and the value you can get from it easily and most often without even paying.


Our speaker

James Potter, the 'LinkedIn Man'.

With over twenty-six years' of sales experience, and more than ten years on LinkedIn, James Potter is the leading provider of sales and commercial LinkedIn training and consultancy for business professionals trying to make more sales and make LinkedIn work for them.

Since James started using LinkedIn in corporate life as Sales Director, it enabled him to build new relationships, remind clients of breadth of value, and get engagements worth over £10 million in sales in his first six years alone.

Enjoying a successful career in a diverse array of industries has allowed James to understand how to make LinkedIn work: what matters, and what doesn’t if you want to grow a flourishing business through relationships.  

James now helps companies of all sizes across the world from leading corporations such as IBM and Dell, to small businesses to focus on the practical and tactical skills needed to succeed when using LinkedIn.
