ACBC Victoria invites you to our event ‘Cultivating a powerful network and personal brand - Essential LinkedIn and WeChat skills for professionals’

In the current digital era, an increasing number of professionals are ditching traditional paper business cards and instead utilising communication apps to form connections. It is no longer just about ‘who you know’ but rather the professional online networks you create and effectively engage with.

Boasting over 500 million members, LinkedIn is a networking site that has revolutionised the western business world in recent years. Tailored specifically for the business community, it is an essential platform for professionals looking to boost their career, grow their reach or land a new position. Conversely, WeChat is considered the top communications app for 90 per cent of Chinese professionals. From planning meetings to sending lucrative contracts, the app has played a significant role in daily business dealings.

At the event you’ll hear from:

KJ Wong – Awakebyfiveam 

KJ established his brand Awakebyfiveam to assist businesses to grow their sales through unique sales training and sales process programs.
