“Andrea was invited to give a keynote address at the annual Oracle JD Edwards Summit 2012 on the topic of “The Social Media Revolution”. The concepts, facts and material were well organized, compelling and delivered in an engaging and entertaining manner. The audience of several hundred business professions was completely attentive to Andrea’s presentation as was evidenced by the fact that not a single person left the presentation before the end. In addition, I personally received comments directly from several attendees that Andrea’s presentation really opened their eyes about the power and importance of social media in today’s business world, and that they were inspired to get involved and use their new knowledge and appreciation. This is exactly the outcome we hoped for from this keynote. Great work Andrea and thanks also for all the good work and education you provide via the social media venues!” – Kem Butler, JD Edwards/Oracle
Andrea Vahl was hired to speak at a conference for Social Media and Entrepreneurship called #SocialROCK2018 in Rockford IL. Andrea was a delight to work with. She provided timely information and participated in the event from start to finish. She was so beyond easy to communicate with/work with that it made my job as organizer very easy.
Andrea’s presentation was very actionable and provided our guests with GREAT information that they could use right away. Andrea really took to heart the unique audience she was presenting to and strategized a way for her presentation to speak directly to them.
To top it all off, Andrea is hilarious and infuses great humor into her work. I would highly recommend hiring Andrea to speak at your professional development event. She is an asset to the social media and entrepreneurship community.
“Great information. Andrea is so knowledgeable and answers questions really well.” – Gail Joy Hoag, business owner
“Andrea is very knowledgeable, personable and also patient with questions! She is able to address all levels of expertise. It covered a range of information and provided specifics not just generalities (which I find refreshing). The hands on style made it effective and useful.” – Barbara Rush, workshop attendee
“What a great class, Andrea, you are a social media genius, AND you make it fun. I am so excited to implement the tools you gave today. THANK YOU!!” – Jessica Press
“One of the BEST webinars I’ve ever attended! I learned so much. I’m afraid Andrea is going to invoice me for all the consultation she provided in answering all my questions though! (Andrea, I pay handsomely in Shiner Bock, thanks for all of your expertise!).” – Audrey
There are many Facebook experts out there, but few are able to explain Facebook in such a comprehensive way as Andrea. I love the fact that she takes the confusion and sense of feeling overwhelmed out of the equation by delivering simple strategies that are easily implementable. This makes taking consistent action on Facebok so much more achievable and that will allow us to see results much faster as small business owners.
One last thing I should point out about Andrea is that her sense of humour is contagious and she really injects the “social” back in to “social media”!
Thanks for being so generous with your insight, tips and strategies about Facebook!
