LinkedIn Training

Since 2009, thousands of government market professionals have received LinkedIn training and coaching from Mark Amtower –

“Mark provided LinkedIn training for our firm and I was thrilled with the results. We have some pretty sophisticated LinkedIn users on staff and I thought they would tell me they knew everything there was to know about how to use this tool, but even our expert users learned a lot from Mark. We spent a full day together learning how to fully use the features and capabilities of LinkedIn. Mark provided a comprehensive training program and one on one coaching. He did a great job and I am proud to recommend him as an expert LinkedIn trainer and coach.”
Bob Lohfeld, Lohfeld Consulting Group
