About this Event

A Big House Event supported by Creative Quarter & delivered by Charlie Whyman

Please note: If you have already accessed 12 or more hours of support from The Big House, you may be placed on a waiting list and your place is not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from The Big House Events Team.


LinkedIn is a huge opportunity for freelancers and business owners to generate new business and position themselves as an authority in their industry - and the best part is that it’s completely free!

With a global network of over 630 Million people using the platform today and a huge amount of targeting options you’ll be leaving opportunities on the table if you’re not actively present or at the very least have a profile that sets you apart from the rest.

Why attend this workshop?

During this workshop you’ll discover:

What sets you apart in your market and how to communicate this on LinkedIn

How to leverage your personal profile to put yourself in front of your ideal audience

How to ‘Design Your Network’ so that you know you’re communicating with the right people that will help you grow your business

How to leverage the networks and contacts of others to expand your reach and get your content in front of a larger audience

How to write content on LinkedIn that really grabs the attention of your ideal clients and doesn’t just fade into the background and get ignored and

How to create a network full of fans and advocates that help you get your name out there so that you become known for what you want to be known for.

What to expect?

Expect an interactive workshop where you’ll get hands on and start applying what you learn during the session. You’ll also find yourself brainstorming ideas with post-its so be sure to bring an open mind and some energy to learn and get involved. This is not a ’sit down and be talked at’ kind of workshop!

**Be sure to bring your laptop and phone with the LinkedIn App installed**


Charlie Whymanhas a very varied background and has been training people how to leverage LinkedIn for over 5 years now and for nearly 2 years since launching her second business in 2017 - her love for LinkedIn came about when she realised that you don’t need a marketing budget or a huge amount of time to really build a strong reputation for yourself in your target market and generate business without spending a huge amount of time doing it - this was hugely valuable as she was juggling many plates and priorities whilst acting as the Global Head of Sales and Marketing for a small but international tech business.

Most people don’t enjoy sales - most people don’t enjoy being sold too either and Charlie is on a bit of a mission to help more people discover how to leverage LinkedIn to generate real business (not just leads and expand the number of connections you have) and position themselves as the authority they truly are.

Not only does Charlie have experience working in technical B2B sales, marketing and leadership roles but she also spent two years working in the public sector in sports and healthcare and also started her first business 13 years ago importing and selling artisan food and drink from Sardinia in the UK. She hosts her own podcast - The Curiosity Key Podcast and the LinkedInLocal Networking events in Nottingham.


These classes are for businesses who are actively looking for clients. We also welcome pre-start ups who are looking to gain traction for their product / service before the begin trading.
