Contributed - Network Meeting - 16th March

The new networking group for working women “Network Algarve” has set up a group on the online forum LinkedIn to manage and facilitate all future communications and announcements.

A very well attended meeting was held on the 16th March at the Hotel Garbe in Armaçao de Pera to review the trial of their group on LinkedIn which had been running for 6 weeks. Network Algarve had decided to trial LinkedIn as an alternative means of co-ordinating the group’s activities.

Helen Jones of Pelican Business Services who organised this review gave a superb presentation on how Network Algarve can benefit from the features and applications of LinkedIn and how it can operate more efficiently by using the forum to communicate with its’ members.

The trial received a very positive response and the decision was made to use LinkedIn for all future communications within Network Algarve and all further meetings and events will be announced in this way. Speed Networking is the next meeting which will be held in April, if you want to get in the know and join a dynamic women’s networking organisation, get linked in.
