Reviews and Recommendations

“As I said to you personally, when I was looking for teacher suggestions, four different people mentioned your name. And they were certainly correct! Based on my observations, and the enclosed student evaluations, the class was very successful. Everyone commented on your depth of knowledge and your engaging style of teaching.”

"Barbara enthusiastically shared her wisdom of LinkedIn 101, with our woman's group. I found her wonderfully open to working with the various levels of need. She was thorough, lively, warm and generous with her presentation style. I loved having the opportunity to work with her. I'd recommend Barbara as a speaker and as a social media expert"

“Barbara’s presentation was outstanding. Her warmth, charm and funny stories made everyone feel comfortable and at home, as if you were chatting with a friend.”

“Barbara was informative, approachable, and responsive to every question.”

“Barbara is warm, positive, and patient. Barbara adapted her slide materials for our group, rather than have the group adapt to her knowledge. She is knowledgeable, professional, thoughtful, and through.”

“Since your presentation, I have activated one new blog, at wordpress, which I had never previously heard of, added a couple of posts to another new one, upgraded my profile on LinkedIn, signed myself up for Google Alerts, checked myself out on Google and was amazed at some of what I found, and followed up on a conversation with another attendee who may be a new business lead. Not a bad ROI for my time. Thanks.”
