“I had the pleasure of attending a Linkedin Symposium given by Romona (Admintech Consulting). Her knowledge and insightful techniques helped me to improve my use of this "HOT" social media business tool to generate more contacts, quality leads, and increase more business with 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations.”
“Romona is a super talented Social Media expert. Our brand has improved vastly with her expert analysis of our old product and development of our new presence in social media. I highly recommend Romona! She is a great asset to our organization.”
“I knew about Linkedin. Signed up for it. However, I had no idea how it would benefit me. I took the two classes that were instructed by Romona Foster and a whole new world was opened to me. She was very knowledgeable, pleasant, patient, and answered all of our questions with clarity. I would recommend that anyone who wants a full understanding and working knowledge of Linkedin attend her classes. What I learned was invaluable. Thanks so much Romona. Now I look forward to going into the Linkedin Network.”
"Romona is a fabulous instructor. I was her student in a class along with about 15 others. Her information is clear, very helpful, and she made certain that everyone in the class understood and participated. She has a good sense of humor, she is smart, and she has lots of energy. I felt lucky to learn more about social media and linkedIn from her. She really knows her stuff. I highly recommend her.”
“Without Romona, I would not be in the position I am now. Her unbelievable critical thought to create a profile for me that allows employers to have a comprehensive view of my professional experience is nothing short of amazing. She spent significant time with me and pushed me to think about all of the attributes that I wanted to be reflected in my professional resume. From there she was able to take all of the information create a masterful document that has opened many doors for me. I highly recommend her services!”

"Romona is very attentive to her student's needs and throughout her class I felt she made sure we all got what we went there for and even more. I learned a lot and I can't wait to go back for part II. I also felt less intimidated about social media to the point that made me wonder why I didn't do that before. Thank you very much Romona!" ~ Flavia Campos, Founder of Soothing Spaces, Professional Organizers
"I had the pleasure of meeting Romona at a Linkedin seminar... The class was amazing! I went equipped with specific questions that needed answers, and she provided them. In addition to being very knowledgeable of this social media tool, she's a sharp, engaging instructor who managed to hold her students’ attention. I can't wait to attend Part II of the Linkedin seminar to learn more about maximizing the benefits that this social media tool has to offer. In fact, I've already inquired about the Twitter class that she will be teaching in January 2013. Also, to finally join the social media revolution and feel comfortable doing so, I plan to take additional classes with her. Some of my friends need help navigating through these new communication tools, and I will be sure to pass Romona's name on to each and every one of them." ~ Desiree French, Communications Manager, Downtown DC Business Improvement District (BID)
