LinkedIn Summary Update

When you speak with someone face-to-face, you naturally change the words you use depending on your surrounds. The things you talk about with your girlfriends over a coffee are different to the words you use and your topics of conversation over a meeting with the board of directors. Apply this knowledge when writing across different […]
