How’s pandemic been for you - what’s yours last 12 month story?

The pandemic has made me shift to virtual facilitation overnight with amazing results. My first full day virtual happened immediately after MCO 1.0 after 18 Mar 2020. Since then, I've attended many Workshops & Webinars by many foreign Speakers & Presenters.

I was invited by 3 International Coaching & Leadership Summits which I accepted immediately taking this as an opportunity to learn & share. I was also invited to grace two virtual online dialogues which were accepted quite well by the audience. The results were awesome & give me confidence to do more.

I conducted many half-day, full-day probono (for NGO organizations) & paid coaching & soft skills workshops which were exciting & gotten excellent feedback.

Share your Linkedin journey?

in 2016 when I came out to freelance, I started to be active in LinkedIn and it became the platform of choice for my vocation ie coaching. I love the interactions and the connections to many new friends & potential associates. The traction was good but nothing extraordinary. Last year, right in the middle of pandemic, I decided to join a LinkedIn workshop called Killing it on LinkedIn. I'm so grateful that I took this up as I noticed that if I practiced and follow closely to what I was advised to do, I get better traction immediately. The facilitator was very lively and I can follow her well. The structure was great as everyday for 3 days, we get to practice postings & get feedback in the evening. I decided to be an active participation by asking more questions. After all I was there to learn and to improve my experience with LinkedIn. After that I keep pushing myself to post & write articles and it has been great so far.
