PANEL Q: Hey Chris, what are one or two key tips that make up a great bio?I would love to know more about who these people are. I know they are IT professionals, but WHO are they? What do they like to do in their free time? Do they love to cook, go shopping, do they love shoes or do they game in their free time. The idea here is to spice up these bios and add some personality. Reuse your LinkedIn or Twitter profile, how you want to be viewed externally
