QuickBooks Connect Conference: LinkedIn Presentation

Donna Serdula at LinkedIn's Headquarters

LinkedIn Branding Presentation

It was an honor to speak at Intuit’s QuickBooks Connect conference in San Jose. The event was such a success and expertly organized and elegantly run. My presentation, “5 Tips to Crank Up Your Impact & Results on LinkedIn,” took place on November 15, 2017. I spoke to a standing room only crowd. I was later told that the room held 150 but more than 175 people attended.

My friend Gita Faust, shot my presentation using her iPhone, broadcasting it via Facebook Live. You can see the footage of my Linkedin presentation here:

While I was in San Jose, I was presented with a wonderful opportunity to see LinkedIn’s Sunnyvale campus. I had a wonderful lunch and a great tour of the campus. It was fascinating seeing the inner workings of this amazing company. Peeking in a conference room, there was a meeting taking place. My guide said, “Sorry, Donna but there are people working here, we have to go.” And just as we were about to shut the door, the most lovely harmony emerged from the room. I looked at my guide quizzically and she said, “Oh, that’s our acoustic group, InTune. They are practicing.”

And just in case you don’t believe me, here’s a video of them performing on stage:

Sadly, I signed a contract that stated I couldn’t take any pictures inside the campus– but I did snap a few pictures on the outside:

  1. Donna’s presentation at Intuit’s conference was fantastic! I arrived right at the minute it was to start and they had to have a meeting to let two more of us in – luckily, i was admitted. They had to seat me by the sound engineer, because it was indeed standing room only:)

    I have been using LinkedIn since day one, once had 8,000 connections then after listening to Reid Hoffman at an event, realized i was using it wrong and deleted my account — started over. I’m only back to ~1,000 connections years later; but they are people i actually have a real-world relationship with.

    So i know a lot about LI. But Donna is a real LI expert — she totally “gets it”. Try out her headline generator, for starters!
