My Linkedin Groups
I have created and currently maintain 3 Linkedin.com groups. Each group’s membership base consists of experts in their respective fields from locations across the globe. Invaluable discussions and powerful relationships are created through industry experts communicating in these groups. My goal is for these groups to grow in size and quality and to eventually produce something that can be shared with the world.
