Professionalism in the Age of Social Media: Relevance, Reliability, and Referability on LinkedIn

Andy Brownstein, a practicing corporate, energy, and real estate attorney in Richmond, Virginia, and Marc W. Halpert, a recognized LinkedIn coach/trainer/consultant, will co-present their views on successful best practices that add beneficial value to readers from expressing legal observations via LinkedIn Posts, always submitted ethically and professionally.

They will show ways to encourage readers to comment back in a conversation around a topic among peers to encourage professionalism. This program is aimed at legal professionals whose posting activity needs a new perspective or to get them started in a new habit of posting, and showing themselves and their firm in the best professional light.

This 1-hour program will discuss short form online brand communication to:
1) Enhance your practice by providing 930+ million professionals on LinkedIn with your thoughts on relevant topics,
2) Inform others on legal subject matters on new developments in your field practice, ethically,
3) Encourage online readers to look to you as a referral source, and

These tactics can lead to new contacts, press inquiries, and professional recognition for you and your firm.
