About Linda Parkinson-Hardman
Linda Parkinson-Hardman is the author of five books including Linkedin Made Easy.
She works with business owners and companies to help them develop sustainable and effective social media strategies that enable them to engage with their current and potential customers and clients.
In her spare time, Linda is the founder and CEO of The Hysterectomy Association and a social entrepreneur who is passionate about teaching people to ‘fish'. Her favourite quotation is:
'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.'
This quotation has been a guiding light throughout her career. She believes that if people have the right sort of information and a guide to help them understand how it fits together, then they are best placed to make the decisions they need too in the long term, whether as a business owner or for their long term health.
Her book LinkedIn Made Easy (LME) served two purposes in the beginning. She raised money for charity and provided everyone that kept asking her questions with a simple resource that allowed them to help themselves.
The latest LME version took the original and expanded it further and it now includes a section called 'Recipes for Success' - suggestions about how to use the power of LinkedIn to make it work for your specific needs.
She is committed to enabling businesses to grow sustainably into the future through the APPROPRIATE use of the Internet technologies. She says:
"I work with clients to transfer MY knowledge, skills and expertise into THEIR companies and organisations so that they can become more effective online AND more profitable through a sustainable strategy."
