Here is what people are saying about Matt's class: “If you really want to learn how to use LinkedIn and walk away with practical knowledge and skills that you can apply immediately, then I strongly suggest that you attend Matthew Prazenka's seminar. Unlike several seminars that I have attended on LinkedIn, Matthew offers a 'nuts & bolts' approach that covers the fundamentals in depth and teaches you 'step-by-step.' I highly recommend Matthew's tutorial and don't forget to bring your laptop. This is hands-on!”

David Carman, President CEO of Business Network Chicago March 23, 2009
