Suzanne’s Favorite Post
In this post I asked followers to nominate young aviation professionals who they were inspired by, and I mailed 15 copies of my book along with a handwritten note & small gift to each. It was so inspiring to learn their stories and see them post pictures when they received their package. The post had more than 46k+ views
Suzanne’s Successful Post
I’ve truly enjoyed the connection to industry facilitated by LinkedIn and it’s hard to choose a most successful post, but I decided on this one where I put out a call to the international community for contributors to an edited book. The response was tremendous and diverse and led to the book Engaging the next generation of aviation professionals.
