Judyth Piazza and Jan Vermeiren Linking in to the Secrets of Success on LinkedIn

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Jan Vermeiren is the founder of Networking Coach and according to HR Tribune one of Belgiums top 10 speakers.

Jan and his team not only provide (key note) presentations, training courses and personal coaching about networking and referrals, but also advice organisations how to stimulate networking at their own events and how to integrate networking in their sales and recruitment strategy.

Besides that he is also regularly interviewed as an expert about online and offline networking, LinkedIn and referrals by different media like Belgian national television (De Zevende Dag, Lichtpunt), Forbes, several newspapers, job sites (, Jobat) and the magazines of several Chambers of Commerce.

Jan is the author of the networking book `Let`s Connect!`, the networking CD `Let`s Connect at an event!`, the `Everlasting Referrals Home Study Course` and this book `How to REALLY use LinkedIn`.

The US version of `Let`s Connect!` reached the Amazon best seller list on October 9, 2007 with a number 2 position in marketing books and number 9 in management books. This made Jan the first Belgian author to reach this position.

On March 17, 2009 he broke his own record on Amazon when "How to REALLY use LinkedIn" reached number 1 position in the category "Sales and Selling" and number 2 position in the category "Job Hunting and Careers".

Jan and his team are hired as speaker and trainer by large international companies like Alcatel, Deloitte, DuPont, IBM, ING, Mobistar, Nike, SAP and Sun Microsystems as well as by small companies and freelancers.

Jan is also a speaker and guest lecturer in the international MBA programs of Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School (Belgium) and RSM Erasmus University Rotterdam (the Netherlands). As a networking and LinkedIn expert most of the time he teaches these students how to get a job by tapping into the power of their network.
