What Other‟s Have Said “I‟ve
always recognized the importance of LinkedIn, but never seemed to find the time to enhance my profile to get the results I wanted. My „LinkedIn Tune-up‟ workshops with Bryce helped me identify where to focus and actually make the appropriate changes so my LinkedIn profile would more effectively represent me as a professional.” Roger McConville, Vice President, SAP
