IWOC and Chicago Creative Coalition are excited to be co-hosting this very special Zoom Webinar. Moderated by C3 President Kathleen Kearns, our esteemed speaker will be JD Gershbein, who was originally scheduled for the now postponed April 14 meeting. Mr. Gershbein has graciously restructured his talk to calmly and wisely address how to develop and maintain smart business practices in today's stressful circumstances, turning daunting challenges into positive actions.

In JD's words...  

"For so many professionals with so much on the line, the coronavirus pandemic could not have come at a worse time. Concerns about the spread of the disease have crippled businesses, devastated the economy, and cast serious doubt about our abilities to withstand a prolonged period of social distancing. The challenge we all must now face is managing the new normal as effectively as possible.

As business has gone virtual, more and more professionals have turned to LinkedInfor news, support, and inspiration. Many users find themselves asking: what steps can I take right now to up-level my online presence and maintain a sense of connectedness with clients, prospects, colleagues, and employees?

Whether you are an experienced LinkedIn user, or a newbie interested in learning the ropes of the site, there are new rules of engagement to embrace and new practices to master. Join LinkedIn strategist JD Gershbein for a candid discussion on how LinkedIn can keep you grounded on your personal brand journey and help you reclaim business momentum in these turbulent times."
