Monday Morning Roundup: LinkedIn & Executive Branding Links from Around the Web, July 29th

Donna Serdula and Jeffrey Gitomer

Okay, okay, it’s not Monday morning but Monday evening. There’s a reason for my tardiness. Rather than spending the weekend lounging by the pool and relaxing I spent it at the National Speakers Association’s Annual Conference. In fact, the conference continues until Tuesday. It’s an amazing experience. Tons of speeches and educational workshops. I am tweeting like crazy!

One of the most memorable moments of the conference so far was meeting my hero, Jeffrey Gitomer! Jeffrey’s books on sales and his approach to Social Media have inspired me beyond measure. And I am happy to report that he was absolutely lovely and kind in person.
