    LinkedIn is an invaluable tool to building your professional network, but everyone has their ‘secrets,tips&tricks’.If I win a copy of Alex’s book I’d love to write a review for the networkinginvan blog, and take Jen out for a nice cup of tea!

    I would love the extra strategy for managing my own linkedin network, as well as be able to recommend the book as a resource to students. After reading it myself, I’d publish a review and donate my copy to our school’s library.
