Hi! I’m Hel Reynolds and I do the job of my dreams and that is a lot because of how I’ve used Twitter.
I help people to use social media like Twitter and Facebook for professional reasons, helping them to talk to right audience, and to enhance their own or their organisation’s reputation.
This course is the course for you if you already have a job but would like to develop more opportunities to thrive in your profession. Perhaps you want to become more respected by your colleagues and peers for what you do. Maybe you want a promotion or you want to build on your relationships with clients or suppliers. You want to be sure that you have a professional network that will support your ambitions. This is about boosting your career and it will help you no matter what work you do.
I’ve helped lots of people to supercharge their careers. People like Jon, he's a social media officer at a council and he asked me to help him to get taken more seriously at work. His problem was he was finding that people just wanted him to post their press releases online, when he had the skills and enthusiasm to build creative video campaigns on Facebook and Snapchat. So, I worked with him to get him tweeting other social media officers in the sector and to talk to people on Twitter about the work he was most proud of. He became so liked and his work was so admired outside of his organisation, that suddenly his colleagues started to take notice of him.
I didn’t do this for him, I just gave him the tools and the encouragement that he needed to use his personality and his talent to build a network.
Here are a few tweets from more people I know who told me about their stories.
Sarah managed to blag freebies for her charity through connections she’d made on Twitter
Mrs G found writing work as well as making a close friend
Bridget got an opportunity to do amazing and fulfilling work as a consultant.
It’s all so exciting and I want to that for you.
Social media is great for fun and for personal connections but why not use it for work too? Research shows that the more active you are on social media, the more you will reap the rewards.
But you’ve got to be clever in how you use it.
I’m sure the advice over the next half hour will give you all you need to take your career in exciting directions and open up loads of opportunities.
I’ll help you build your own unique community of people who want to listen to you, want to help you and encourage your career development.
You can have the exciting career you want by following my advice in this course over three areas. The first one:Building your personal brand within the sector

I'm not a professional yet, but this course by far has been eye-opening for sure! I had never thought of using Twitter as a networking tool, but thanks to Helen, I will now start using the many tips and practical advice to build my own professional community on Twitter, just as I am trying on Linkedin.
