LinkedIn Profile Specialists

THEPROFILE.COMPANY was established in 2015 and based in the UK. TheProfile.Company serves solo entrepreneurs, small businesses, sales teams, recruiters and corporates all over the world to create engaging LinkedIn profiles that convert. It was founded by Naomi Johnson author of’What to Put on Your LinkedIn Profile’ and ‘Grassroots to Green Shoots’.

At TheProfile.Company, we believe LinkedIn is a powerful tool able to help anyone achieve his or her business objectives, but it all starts with a good profile.

In an era of information overload, our human brains are programmed to stereotype and pigeonhole people in a matter of seconds. If you want to make a lasting impression, having an engaging LinkedIn profile that speaks directly to audience and clearly pitches your offering is imperative. It is your window to the world, after all.

Creating a profile really is a science and an art. That’s why we are here to help. We understand that sometimes you’re too close to your own business to craft the words needed to really express what you do and the value you bring. Let us help you.

Yes Can Do Media

Making Your Business Social with Great Videos

The things that dominate our everyday lives were not around 10+ years ago. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and social media as a whole have opened up several media channels to pretty much every audience. So how does your company use this to stand out from the crowd? You find stories within your company and spin it to create multiple levels of stories and content such as blogs, imagery and videos. You then create your own media channel and share it to your audience and the world.

We create engaging videos for your website and social media, and then support you to get them seen via your social media platforms. We’ll be filming at the event to make short promotional videos for each of the speakers to use afterwards. Come say hello.

University of Portsmouth

THE UNIVERSITY OF PORTSMOUTH launched their Degree apprenticeships in 2016 and are ramping up their efforts each year to spread the word about the incredible scheme that allows employees to work while also studying part-time for a full Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

Degree Apprenticeships combine the academic study from a traditional university degree with the practical on-the-job experience and employment skills required for a successful career. The government and employers pay employees’ tuition fees, so they won’t need a student loan to fund their studies. They’ll also earn a salary from their employer while they study.

Portsmouth College

Apprenticeships are a unique way to grow your own workforce; they combine on-the-job training in your organisation with off-the-job learning. At Portsmouth College we work with companies to find just the right apprentice for their needs, provide day release training for the students with our expert tutors and support you, the organisation, through each step of the process. If you have questions about hiring an apprentice, make sure you see us at the event and we’ll be sure to answer your questions.
