Gloucestershire based leading marketer and social media expert, Luan Wise, has been invited by Linkedin to join their online learning company, Lynda.com, as an author and provider of online training.
Lynda.com, Inc was acquired by Linkedin in 2015 and delivers quality instruction through online tutorials in a wide range of subjects. The platform provides thousands of cutting edge video tutorials and attracts millions of visitors to its website every year. Luan will be flying out to LinkedIn’s recording studios in Carpinteria, California in October to record the course which will be published early 2017.
Luan Wise is an independent marketing practitioner, with 15 years’ experience in full service agency, client side and consultancy roles. Her career in marketing started ‘web first’, managing content and building online communities. She’s won many accolades, including being named one of the top five female marketers by LinkedIn UK for its 2015 International Women’s Day campaign, and being included in the South West’s ‘42 under 42’ list of the region’s brightest talents. Luan is an active ambassador for the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Direct Marketing Association.
Luan now works mostly with business owners/directors to support high and sustainable growth, and with marketers who need a ‘critical friend’ and/or a fresh pair of eyes on specific projects and is due to launch her first book, ‘Relax! It’s Only Social Media. A no-nonsense guide to social networking for you and your business’, this November.
“I’m honoured to be asked by LinkedIn to join their online learning platform and excited to be travelling to California in October to start recording my tutorials,” said Luan. “It’s been an exciting year and together with the launch of my book in November is the culmination of a great deal of hard work, lots of coffee and more than a few sleepless nights!”
