About us

In April 2015 ARRA Management signed up as part of the 3Degress Social network. As a small business that has used LinkedIn to grow and nurture connections, it was a natural fit to add the 3Degrees Social range of social media training, coaching and mentoring to our range of products and services.

What is 3Degrees Social?

We’re in the business of helping people to create and nurture relationships and supercharge their sales

Blue right arrowWith over 15million personal profiles on LinkedIn in the UK alone, there is an overwhelming demand for these people to know how to use this powerful platform effectively and to reach targets for growth in their businesses.

Blue right arrowThrough tried, tested and proven techniques we are able to train and coach individuals, businesses and sales teams in a practical way that enables them to harness the power of LinkedIn, allowing them to cut out the wasted hours of fruitless networking and dreaded cold calling, massively shortcutting the sales process which every business is crying out for.

I really care about helping people get more out of their careers and out of their businesses. As a project manager for 30 years I have lead, coached, mentored and trained project and line managers and teams to deliver more effectively. As a business owner and coach I have built a successful consultancy and training business and, with my wife, built and sold a successful local care business for a substantial 5-figure sum. In that time I have successfully used LinkedIn to connect with my target clients to develop business opportunities.

This strong background in delivery, training and coaching, mixed with developing small businesses, means I know how much more potential there is in most people to market themselves and their businesses so much more effectively and more personably. Through the 3 degrees Social network, the Entrepreneurs Circle and various mastermind groups, I’ve accessed a whole host of tools and resources to help people work smarter, market themselves and their business more effectively and have the time to do and enjoy the things that are really important to them.

LinkedIn is one of the most under-utilised resources I’ve come across. That’s why I love being part of 3degrees Social. We specialise in helping you halve your networking time and take the ‘6degrees of separation’ down to just 3degrees with effective use of LinkedIn. I have a variety of ways I can help you with this – from half day and full day workshops (open and in-house), through online programmes to hands-on 1:1 three-month programmes tailored just for you.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to grow. Connect with me today at uk.linkedin.com/in/allenruddock and let’s start to explore how I can help you maximise your potential.

Maureen Ruddock

Maureen v2I don’t know much about consulting or project management, but having built and sold a successful care company, I have learned a lot about building and running a business, and about networking in particular. Over the past 3-4 years I have found LinkedIn one of the most powerful tools for networking with your ideal contacts. That is why we became part of the 3degress Social network to offer you tailored LinkedIn training.

My role is to organise all of our face to face events and training, ensuring you get everything you need to make the best use of LinkedIn. You’ll find me on the reception desk at events and then mingling in the break times, sharing some of my own experiences.

Connect with me and let’s begin your journey to success.
