Having trained thousands of LinkedIn users over the last 3 years it has been an observation of mine that many of the best ideas and techniques come from users themselves, most people are self-taught and this makes my job fascinating as I listen ideas and best practices from others and turn them into comprehensive guides and tutorials (adding my own twist along the way).

It stuck me that it might be interesting to run a series of interviews with LinkedIn users from a wide variety of backgrounds who are likely to be using LinkedIn in many different ways. These are not necessarily 'super users' in fact most are likely to be people who have a lot to learn themselves but that doesn't mean that by sharing their techniques and perspectives that others can't learn something from them.

I hope you find these interviews interesting, thought-provoking and ultimately useful. If you feel you have something to share and want me to interview you, simply drop me a line at
