Good afternoon,
I am looking for  workshop or seminar in the Bay area specifically designed for Executive Admins, particularly those who work for multinationals.  Have you attended or heard about any that you would recommend?  My goal is to learn more about how to support a global organization effectively and meet some other admins who could become part of my network.
Thank you,
Suzanne

Message:
I agree with Phyllis. A personal message, at the very least indicating how you know each other, helps tremendously. I hope at some point LinkedIn will make it easier to select this as an option. I sometimes find it difficult to make the appropriate selection to add a personal message.

Subject: RE:Connecting on LinkedIn
Message:
I have 500+ connections on LinkedIn. With a few exceptions, I've never sent a generic email invitation. I always explain how we're connected (you'd be amazed how small our world really is, particularly if you're a member of IAAP). I think it makes a big difference in getting accepted.

If someone sends me the generic "I'd like you to join my network", I'll often accept, but I won't correspond with them on a personal level. It adds another dimension to networking if you make it personal.

Best regards,

Message:
Mary Gayle,

Very thoughtful query as always. For me personally it is a bit of a hybrid as i have used Linked In and other social media to successfully seek out potential speakers and new members. I will usually include a small teaser to say I'd like to connect with you to share more about IAAP (spelled out). When someone accepts I will then thank them for connecting let them know I am adding to my distribution list for information and that they can opt out at any time.

I have some ask to be removed and I do so immediately and affirm that it has been done.

I am going to divert slightly from your original query here to expand on this thought. With today's technology we are connected everywhere all the time. I have seen messages that people get angry because something like this hits their inbox at work or even their personal inbox. My thought, if your connectivity isn't directly related to work, why do you have a work email address published where everyone can find it. There are so many free ones that you can change in a moment's notice and most will not take the time to research for someone who bounces as underliverable they will just delete the. A second thought, if you really don't want to see something either send a simple message asking to unsubscribe or just delete it.

Message:
Mary Gayle,

I connect with IAAP colleagues and members of the other professional organizations I belong to, as well as speakers and other professionals I have met at various conferences.

Most of my connections I personally know, but many I've only met and interacted with at EFAM, or another professional conference or setting.

I will add a personal note, if warranted, to jog someones memory of our meeting.  Otherwise, I leave the generic note provided by LinkedIn.

I prefer to connect with individuals with whom I have some commonality.

I personally add people I actually know and then I follow certain trainers and people to get tech info from.  I also add people that would be good contacts through IAAP or other organizations or hobbies like geocaching/letterboxing.  

If I am sending the request to someone I know personally, I normally just leave the generic message since they already know who I am.  If it's someone in IAAP or other connections, I normally give them something so they will know where I'm coming from.

Mary, this is an excellent suggestion when using LinkedIn to expand your network. I think it could also be applied to other networking sources.

Thank you for sharing.

Connecting on LinkedIn

Posted: Oct 10, 2013 12:46 AM
Subject: Connecting on LinkedIn
Message:
This is a message I posted on LinkedIn, but thought I'd share here as well.

Everyone's different. Some people want as many connections as possible. Some want to connect with people they actually know. How do you decide?

When you do reach out to link with someone, what's your initial message? I believe it should be a personalized message, not the generic I-want-to-add-you-to-my-professional-network ...  and (if you don't know the person) add a note to explain why your connecting would be a good fit.

What's your theory?
