Once you've registered on LEO, you will be asked to complete your profile. This is not mandatory unless you wish to apply to Networks or Challenges as an expert, however, if you wish to have a public profile, the more details you add about yourself, the more likely you are to stand out on the platform and gain attention from big corporates browsing our members.
Your profile editor is also where you can edit your basic details that you added when registering, as well as change your password.
Whilst you are working on editing your profile, you will see that there are multiple indicators to show you how close to completion you are. The top orange radial indicator shows your overall progress and the purple radial indicators show you your progress within that specific section. Once the top indicator reaches 100% your profile is fully complete. At this point after clicking save you'll be able to apply to Networks and Challenges as an expert.
This section contains your basic profile details, most of which you filled out when registering your account. There are a couple of additional fields you can set, including a phone number that we could use to contact you on and a section for you to tell us where you found out about our website. You can also change your password in this section. You can toggle your account on as private which will mean you appear under your organisation name not your first and last name, and you will no longer appear on the members page.
This section contains the fields you'll need to fill in to complete your profile which will help you stand out on our platform and allow you to apply to Challenges as an expert. You'll need to let us know your field of expertise, provide a short description about yourself, a longer description about your expertise and select the primary sector that you work in. There are also a couple of additional fields including additional sectors that you work in and your profile type (individual, SME, university etc.).
Here you can set the images for your profile. Please use a square jpg image under two Mb for your main profile image. For your header image, use a landscape jpg under 2Mb. If you do not want to set either of these we will select default ones for you.
In this section, you can manage some settings for your notifications and toggle on whether you would like to receive our newsletters as well. If you wish to stop receiving newsletters, you will need to unsubscribe on the newsletter emails using the link at the bottom of the email.
