19/09/2022: WeAreVirtual: How to leverage LinkedIn as an introvert, empath or HSP | Jennifer Corcoran

WeAreVirtual, Jennifer Corcoran

Think that LinkedIn and online networking is only for extroverts?

During this live session LinkedIn Trainer Jen Corcoran will explore how introverts, empaths and HSPs can find their voice on LinkedIn and manage their energy.

Jen will touch on her 4-part PACT formula (Presence, Action, Connect, Thrive) and spotlight that you don’t need to be the loudest in the online space to get traction and create opportunities.

About Jen

Jennifer CorcoranAs an award-winning social media influencer, Jennifer Corcoran knows a thing or two about leaving her comfort zone behind. She uses her experience to help others achieve sustained visibility and success.

Too many of us feel lost when it comes to selling ourselves or our businesses online. Jennifer’s mission is to help entrepreneurs, individuals and businesses stand out on LinkedIn. Her business, My Super Connector, proves that you don’t need to be the loudest person in the room to get noticed.

While working in The City as an executive PA, Jennifer used social media to elevate her reputation. This helped her win regional, national and global awards. A back injury cut her City career short but led Jennifer to find her true calling – as a LinkedIn trainer and networking adviser.

Jennifer is more than a skilled social media scheduler or self-pronounced “Expert”. Her talent and hard work are evident in her list of qualifications and awards, making her one of the UK’s most successful LinkedIn trainers. As a Pitman-accredited LinkedIn trainer, she has qualified in LinkedIn and Social media for business. Her expertise is evident in her list of prestigious awards such as Social Media Influencer of the Year in the Venus Awards. She has also been spotlighted in national campaigns such as F-Entrepreneur and holds 3rd place on the #LinkedInRockstars list.

Jennifer’s clients include London South Bank University, London Chamber of Commerce, Exeter College, the FSB and Enterprise Nation. Her work has been featured in many publications and websites including The Guardian, BrightTALK, Grow Exeter and LBC.

Five reasons to work with Northern Trust

Northern Trust

Greater is...fitting in because of your differences

We believe diversity, equity and inclusion are inextricably linked. That’s why we’re working to create an environment where every individual feels respected, supported and valued to fully contribute to our shared success.

When you join the Northern Trust community, we make a pledge to you.

Here’s what you can expect from day one:

A culture of care and collaboration

Our commitment to partnership is rooted in a culture of care that drives success for clients and partners alike. We value our partners as individuals, offering each person the flexibility to balance their aspirations in work and in life.

How do we show this?

We foster an environment where collaboration is prioritised over competition, and we support and invest in one another to create stronger teams, stronger work and stronger outcomes for our clients.

In EMEA, we’ve created a Women in Technology network to support the development of female talent in technology.

The group, sponsored by our Chief Technology Officer Alison Pain, meets monthly, sometimes with global counterparts to provide a community of learning, sharing best practice and access to role models (internal and external) whilst encouraging networking.

A focus on individual career development and growth

Every career path is different. We’ll help you map yours. We see our partners as people, working closely with them to create plans that work for each individual.

Each of our partners comes with unique skills, perspectives and goals. We believe in empowering our partners with the resources and opportunities to Achieve Greater and realise their full potential. We foster their ambitions, develop their skills and provide countless opportunities to lead and make an impact.

Our EMEA Women in Technology group have also created a programme entitled Together we Thrive, which provides our EMEA female technologists an opportunity to participate in workshops on self-identified tech topics. It allows us to broaden our internal network whilst sharing knowledge, learning and developing our own expertise. Topics to date have included;

  • Cyber Security
  • Domain Driven Design

Dedication to a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce

We are united by the belief that diversity, equity and inclusion are not only essential, but connected.

It’s an approach that sets us apart, driving us to develop new and authentic ways to foster an environment where every partner feels respected, supported and valued.

“True diversity can only exist in an inclusive work environment, where any individual or group feels welcomed, respected, supported and valued to fully participate and contribute to our success.”

Sarah Boddey, Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion officer, EMEA and APAC

How do we show this?

All of our people managers at Northern Trust are required to complete Inclusive Leadership training and all global partners are required to complete Unconscious Bias training.

Key Award wins;

  • Northern Trust has been named a Best Employer for Diversity by Forbes.
  • LGBT Great Financial Services Standards, Silver Standard, 2022
  • Mind Workplace Wellbeing Index – Silver award (2019, 2020, 2021). The UK’s definitive benchmark related to mental health and wellbeing policy.

An opportunity to innovate

Our stability and strength allows us to forge new pathways to success, embrace new technologies, explore new ideas and continue asking tough questions. It’s a mindset that allows us to innovate without fear of failure, advancing technologies and products that unlock new and exciting opportunities.

We strive to challenge the status quo, building on our successes to continue setting new standards.

How do we show this?

As part of our digital modernisation journey, we created a data mesh – a market-leading platform to enable us to gain access to fast and secured data while also allowing us to move faster, predict behaviour and deliver more innovative and personalised solutions to our clients.

In addition, we are proud to have sponsored the WeAreTechWomen One Tech World conference. This innovative conference continues to show existing women in the industry and those who want to transition in, what that world of future tech really looks like. It also involves encouraging women from all backgrounds to consider tech careers, so that we can contribute to the creation of products and systems that are truly inclusive.

“Diversity of thought can come from anything: educational background, financial situation, gender, ethnicity, religion, all those different things.”

Alison Pain – Chief Innovation Officer for EMEA

The chance to make a meaningful impact

Our approach to our work is rooted in our values: service, expertise and integrity. These values drive everything we do, from the way we serve our clients to our ongoing efforts to support and advance our communities.

That commitment has earned us a reputation as a premier financial partner to the world’s most successful individuals, families, and public institutions, granting us valuable influence on the global economy and the communities that power it.

How do we show this?

  • Employees are given two paid days off a year to support their volunteer efforts.
  • We are a proud corporate partner of the Science Museum, and actively work to encourage young people encourage a career in STEM.
