We opened a flagship location in central London together and hosted our first press conference for the founder of Starbucks Howard Shultz. I love this course because I am a huge LinkedIn fan, I have met amazing retail leaders all over the world through this platform and share my thoughts and blog weekly. When I meet someone I don’t give my business card anymore, I ask them to connect with me on LinkedIn. When they don’t have a LinkedIn profile I want to tell them to get one ASAP because they don’t know what they are missing. I have had mentorship relationships found through LinkedIn where  I have been mentored and mentored others.I am so happy to showcase Calvin’s course on retailu as he is an amazing teacher and mentor and a master at LinkedIn networking.
