Our Topic in Focus for July was Using LinkedIn for Business Success and in order to spread awareness to our Gold Coast small business community on using LinkedIn to its fullest potential, we focused our monthly Lunch & Learn around this topic.
On Monday 1 August at Freedom Potential, Varsity Lakes, we were joined by our speaker, Jad Jubaili.
Jad Jubaili is a successful business owner in a family business, equity and crypto investor, who is looking to share his knowledge for building winning strategies.
Jad helps businesses find commitment to their vision/mission and digs deep to inspire inventive strategies.
For early stage businesses, Jad conducts sessions with owners to reinforce what they want to achieve (Vision) and formulate what needs to be done (Mission). He then develops the business plan which will include a market study, competitor analysis, resource requirements, budgeting, risk management, identifying their competitive advantage, and sales & marketing strategy. Each session will result in actionable tasks that will move the business forward immediately while also putting steps in place for a long term plan.
For mature businesses that have a well thought out vision, mission and strategic plan, owners can benefit from having him get involved as a non-executive advisor to challenge their outlook. A review of the strategic plans combined with a brainstorming session can yield new ideas which build on the existing plan and provide clarity.
Our Key Takeaways from this Lunch & Learn were:
- Regularly update your LinkedIn profile – make sure you are using the right keywords for your industry to attract good connections.
- Connect with people who you can get a mutual benefit from (not just anyone that requests a connection).
- Check your LinkedIn settings often to ensure you have a good understanding of what people can and cannot see about you and your connections.
