How to participate in a LinkedIn chat

Participating in a CPA Australia LinkedIn chat is a valuable way to grow your knowledge on a particular topic. Our LinkedIn chats give you access to specialists and policy advisors so you can ask the questions you really need answered. You can also connect with those from the profession who have similar interests to yours.

Here are a few things you should know before you get involved in a LinkedIn chat:

  1. You’ll need to follow the CPA Australia LinkedIn company page – click here to follow.
  2. You don’t need to register, but we recommend you schedule it into your calendar at 12.30pm (AEDT) on Thursday 1 December, as this is the only reminder you will get to join the chat. At this time, you just need to click onto the CPA Australia LinkedIn company page to participate in the chat.
  3. The LinkedIn chat will address a series of questions to get the discussion started. CPA Australia will ask the questions, and our specialist will answer them. If you would like more information or have a related question, write your question or comment underneath the most recent post.
  4. Our specialist is available for the LinkedIn chat for 30 to 60 minutes. After this time, you can continue to chat on LinkedIn with your peers.
  5. If someone asks a great question or makes an interesting comment, show your appreciation by liking it.
  6. If you find the chat useful and engaging, share the chat with your network. Sharing useful information on LinkedIn will show your network you have participated in a chat on a particular topic and will build your personal profile in this area.
  7. Take the time to see who else joined the conversation and connect with them on LinkedIn – it’s a targeted way to build your network.
  8. Please respect the opinions of your peers. Of course, it’s okay to disagree with someone’s opinion but make sure you discuss the topic only, as our social media policy does not allow inappropriate language or personal attacks.
