Our Story

Our founder worked at Linkedin between 2009 and 2015. During his tenure, Guillaume contributed to the launch of Linkedin in France in 2010 and in the Middle East in 2012. He helped leaders and companies in France and in the Middle East with their Linkedin strategies. Organizations such as Louis Vuitton, Schneider Electric, L’oreal, Schlumberger, Orange, Alshaya, Emirates, Sabic, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Etisalat, Al Tayer and more.

Linkedin is the biggest professional network in the world. Linkedin and social media has transformed the way companies hire, market and sell. Forward-thinking companies and leaders saw the value early on. Today, most B2B businesses in the gulf region use Linkedin and social media for sales, recruitment or marketing but they often struggle to get full adoption and reach the full potential of their social selling or social hiring strategy.

This is the reason why Extra Mile was founded.

We want to help. We know how to help. We will go the extra mile until you and your business succeed.
