I have seen a lot of ‘a quick update’ messages on LinkedIn, as I’m sure you have too. The other day I received an interesting, clear and succinct update message, which I thought I would share to act as a great example of one. It perfectly captures the whole point of LinkedIn – to introduce people and share opportunities. It’s something to think about when writing your next ‘quick update’.
