  • 1.  LinkedIn Profile Links with Bios

    Posted 10-07-2021 16:11
    I would love to know your event experiences when using LinkedIn profiles with your speaker profiles.

    • Do you find speakers are willing to share those links?
    • What percentage of speakers do you think need to have the link to make it worthwhile?
    • Do you believe it enhances the attendee experience?

    We use them for speakers as well as attendees.  Speakers have had no hesitation giving us their LInkedIn profile URL to add to bios and most guests gave it to us too.   We ask our guests for it to get their profile photo for the meeting directory as well as using it to make sure our CRM is updated correctly.  When registering we ask registrants to upload a profile photo or provide us with their LinkedIn Url for us to download it.    Most provide the url.  It has been very helpful for us.
