LinkedIn joins GSMCON2023 lineup

Dec 14, 2022

We’re excited to welcome back LinkedIn to the 2023 Government Social Media Conference lineup! 

GSMCON2023 — the largest social media conference for government — is happening May 2-4 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno-Tahoe, Nevada. Over 500 participants are already signed up for the hybrid event, where the following LinkedIn representatives are sharing strategies that matter most to government social media professionals like you. 

What is branding and why does it matter for your government agency? Returning speaker Erica Pyatt, Senior Sales Manager for LinkedIn Marketing Solutions, is taking the general session stage in a keynote you won’t want to miss about why brand-building marketing — and not just on LinkedIn — is important for your agency.

Investing in Your Government’s Brand to Drive Results, Erica Pyatt, Senior Sales Manager for LinkedIn Marketing Solutions

Governments by and large don’t invest in brand-building marketing in the same way as their private sector peers. Yet investing in your agency’s brand is paramount to driving efficient results. In this session, you’ll learn how the latest marketing research on the importance of brand applies to government agencies, why investing in your brand is important, how to build the business case for brand investment, and strategies for building a strong brand.

LinkedIn is an extremely valuable platform for government social media professionals for business engagement, community engagement, talent recruitment and so much more. Developing your agency’s strategy and tactics to meet your goals is key, but we’ve heard this question from government professionals before: Who really owns your LinkedIn strategy, HR or social media? Meet with Andy Kijinski, Senior Manager overseeing the Client Solutions team, to see how these very different departments can successfully come together.

If there’s tension between your department and your HR counterparts about who owns the LinkedIn strategy for your agency, this session is for you. Whether you’re promoting your agency’s programs or trying to hire top talent, LinkedIn is a powerful tool in your toolbox. In this session, you’ll learn directly from LinkedIn about how communications, marketing, social media and human resources can work together to get the most out of the platform and meet everyone’s goals. You’ll leave better equipped to reset on your LinkedIn strategy and collaborate with your colleagues.
