Connect with Miles, Steve and Martin
CEO & Founder LinkedIn Success Systems
Miles’s experience spans 30 years and has been built up in business development, marketing and digital roles, with a record of delivering profit and growth in corporates, professional services and SME’s.
This background has provided the perfect foundation to understanding how LinkedIn can be used as a very powerful business development and marketing tool, and how it should be integrated in daily activities.
Most people approach LinkedIn form a social media perspective and often miss its business development potential. If you engage with LinkedIn as a social media platform you will have little success. However, if you think it of a dynamic database of contacts, cloud based that you can cut and slice in many and different engaging ways, you will be well on your way to success.
Miles worked his way up through companies in many challenging sectors, learning how to work and thrive in challenging environments with no money, nurture relationships and be disciplined in applying processes and systems.

Most access to LinkedIn is from a Social Media perspective and therefore loses the opportunity to use it for business development. If you go to LinkedIn, as a dynamic database of contacts and potential leads that are free in the cloud, which can be divided and segmented in many ways, you're well on track to achieve success and growth. Martin has been a super user on LinkedIn since 2004, and thus, by actively using LinkedIn achieved many good results.
