Using LinkedIn to Find Celebrity Guests

gdayworld.gifHere’s another smart way to use LinkedIn. On MyLinkedInPowerForum, Stan Relihan recently told the story of how he used LinkedIn to find a celebrity guest for his podcast:

In a recent interview I did with Cameron Reilly from the PodCast Network, he set me a challenge – use LinkedIn to find the biggest Celebrity Guest I could find to appear on the show.

This was a real test of the quality & depth of the LinkedIn network,as well as the willingness of the LinkedIn community to help with introductions.

I’m pleased to report that none other than VINT CERF, (co-inventor of the Internet) was a Guest on today’s G’Day World PodCast, as a result.

You can catch the PodCast here:

A very special thanks to my LinkedIn connections, Christian Mayaud and Cynthia de Lorenzi, who helped make this happen.

  1. Well, so far I’ve connected with real celebrities on myspace, such as Jody Watley, who was on my radio show a few weeks ago. I’m hoping for that on LinkedIn. Or maybe just a different kind of celebrity?
