What would be the roadmap of transitioning to a client-side role (Ex. marketing specialist...)?

Is it weird to start it of with saying my name is xxx?

Any tips for prepping on a move to a new role? Starting new role at Accenture (tech delivery), coming from industry, no idea what to expect. I mostly worked on smaller scale projects, a lot of them internal.
I have a month, so can do some prep work (courses, network, books, etc) to not be fully lost. Don't know where to start (client work, all the new technologies used, multiple industries, pure size of the organisation).
Also, should I add any of my interviewers on LinkedIn? Is that normal?

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

I’ll be taking on a new client in the new year - a financial personality / influencer with less than 10k followers. One of her goals is to grow her following by 5,000 in Q1. I’m already sharing counsel that such an aggressive growth goal in one quarter isn’t realistic but she’ll still want to see some growth tactics in her plan. What are some good ways to grow an audience for an influencer type account?
