LinkedIn expert proves popular with Capital customers

Posted: 13th February 2015

Capital Document SolutionsMore than 70 organisations attended an informative LinkedIn networking event in Edinburgh organised by Capital Document Solutions.

The seminar, held at Capital’s McDonald Road headquarters, attracted 79 professionals who benefitted from expert advice courtesy of ‘Mr LinkedIn’ Miles Duncan.

Delegates learned how to make the most of the online professional networking platform and put Miles’ advice into practice in order to win new business and secure more referrals, before enjoying an informal networking session.

Mark Harvie, area sales director at Capital, said: “We’d like to thank Miles for delivering an excellent presentation. It proved to be a tremendous event and I’m sure everyone who attended gained a great deal, especially in terms of how they can use the lessons learned today to open more doors.

“We were overwhelmed by the level of interest we received from clients and contacts in the Edinburgh business community. Following the success of this event we are looking to hold similar informative seminars in future and would definitely consider inviting Miles back.”

Capital gathered extensive feedback from the audience in terms of having them score the event, venue, presentation and refreshments – with Capital’s superb showroom scoring particularly highly.

Typical feedback saw one delegate describe the event as “extremely informative and engaging from start to finish,” while another added “I really appreciate Capital putting on such a helpful and relevant session… first class.”
