Dave Holloway: Profile

Teaching, coaching and helping people to improve have always been passions of mine. I have been running businesses for over twenty five years, so I know how tough it can be to generate sales or good quality leads.

I worked initially in the family road haulage and building companies and for the last eleven years as an asbestos and health and safety consultant. I started my consultancy with just one business contact. Over the years I have built a thriving company, with all of my work coming from a combination of word of mouth, referral or recommendation. (I didn’t even have a website!) I hadn’t appreciated the potential, or indeed the power, of the network of contacts that I had been making, but I do know that it had taken over ten years to reach this point. If only there was a way to increase my network of contacts and engage professionally, effectively and efficiently with them, but much more quickly…

I was beginning to realise that there was more to networking than just turning up at events and also that for some people the idea of meeting, mingling with, and talking to strangers was not an enjoyable experience. At the same time I was becoming more aware of LinkedIn. Like many people I’d had a LinkedIn profile for years but had no idea of its true potential, then I met 3degrees Social and my world changed.

Word of mouth, referrals and testimonials are powerful marketing tools. People ultimately buy from people and if you can demonstrate greater credibility, reliability and integrity than your competitors then you are more likely to gain business.

LinkedIn is an incredibly powerful marketing and networking tool when used well. It can help you build credibility, demonstrate reliability and show integrity in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of more traditional marketing and networking methods

I am now lucky enough have the opportunity to live my passions. Through 3degrees Social I can now teach, coach and help you improve your use of a marketing and networking tool that most of your competitors are largely ignoring, giving you a massive advantage. Not only will you benefit from my genuine excitement in being able to guide you but you will also benefit from the combined knowledge of several award winning business coaches and mentors that will be passing on their knowledge through me.

There are many ways in which I can help you get the most from improving your LinkedIn presence, ranging from a one hour “power hour” run-through of your current profile and ways to improve it, through half day and one day workshops to bespoke one to one coaching spread over a twelve week period that keeps you accountable and focussed on results.
