Editor’s Note: LinkedIn Brazil recently launched the Make It Happen campaign to show how professionals are leveraging their networks to find opportunities. From consolidating a small company to keeping in touch with colleagues from other countries, our members are making the most of their professional networks on LinkedIn. Here’s a story from one of our members Leonardo Brant, a writer, researcher and culture manager.
After working in consulting with Brant Associates for over 15 years, I decided to change the course of my business to explore the creative economy in Brazil. In March 2010, I founded Cemec to help Brazilian professionals and entrepreneurs think creatively about their challenges. We started by building a physical space for networking to foster innovative thinking. We then did an extensive search for a digital space that could replicate the physical experience of a classroom, while extending the opportunity to network. Today, LinkedIn serves as this digital classroom where we exchange information and operate a meaningful community to share relevant knowledge.
