Since 2006, my YES, BRAND  guest, JD Gershbein, has been at the forefront of the LinkedIn conversation. One of the world’s first independent LinkedIn consultants and a pioneer in LinkedIn education, JD serves ambitious professionals striving to make their mark in the Digital Age. We have a great time talking about HIS brand, and how he helps cultivate a style for YOURS. We also cover comedy, honesty, and decency as pertains to  brand presence on the platform.

As a speaker, facilitator, writer, and media producer, JD draws upon his diverse academic background—a fusion of psychology, neuroscience, and the humanities—and the improvisation skills he honed at Chicago’s famed Second City to bridge the knowledge gap that exists between businesspeople and the virtual world. Widely regarded as a leader in personal branding, social networking, and social entrepreneurship, JD is blazing a trail as one of the most original personalities in the professional development arena.
