  • A sensational Linkedin presentation for any robust Linkedin advocate. I do not think any of us can totally rest in our knowledge of this amazing platform since it is a work in progress constantly both for us as users and for the architects at LI as well. Many thanks Larry and Rebecca for offering this great work which keeps us all running competitively in the Linkedin race.
