Torsten Schimanski will talk about LinkedIn and focus on participants wondering what to do with LinkedIn. He will discuss the idea of networking, settings, and strategies of how to utilize the busi-ness networking tool.

Torsten runs his own seven-year-old Westchester based business called Financetainment Consult-ing. He works with individual clients and com- panies providing executive and sales coaching and business consulting. He also specializes in learning and development and has over 20 years’ experience in this field. He uses LinkedIn to meet new prospects and to grow his business.

Torsten is a heavy user and expert in the use of LinkedIn, a very popular social networking prod-uct. He is a L.I.O.N. (Linked In Open Networker), which is a designation used by several user-created groups to indicate a high level of intercon-nectivity to other LinkedIn members.

Hope to see you all there.
