The best way to achieve building your professional network and establishing a positive reputation is in LinkedIn groups. Groups are the perfect place to learn about the newest trade trends and connect with other professionals. When you belong to a LinkedIn Group you are providing yourself with the chance to succeed and reach your business goals.
Groups to follow to get started:
Heating and Ventilation News
The H&V News LinkedIn group has become a central forum for the building services sector, underlining our position as an essential source of information for HVAC matters. Members are encouraged to exchange views on relevant developments as our industry continues to develop and adapt to market conditions. It is intended as a discussion forum – not somewhere to post product marketing information or to advertise your services overtly! We also block recruitment personnel as we believe this should be a discussion forum, not a hunting ground.
