I am a trainer, consultant, and speaker, working with organizations and individuals to help them extend their networking, find more prospects, and build their professional brand using LinkedIn, and in person networking. Shhh, secret tip: it's the same behavior for both. I love helping people who are not comfortable with technology to embrace its power. I frequently work with business-to-business and professional services companies, those that grow their business through referrals. Before starting my own consulting firm, I was the Director of Online Marketing and Design for Pall Corporation, a global industry leader in filtration and separation. As leader of the online strategy for the company, I provided the vision, long-range strategic planning, and management of implementation for all initiatives related to Pall's global multi-language website. I also directed the web and corporate design departments, and the global corporate identity program. I am the host of LinkedIn Local on Long Island, a series of local in-person events happening all over the world, designed to let us meet the people behind the profiles, and learn something new. Topics have included: getting over the fear of video, time management, more effective networking, and growing your professional brand using thought leadership. I am also a LinkedIn Live broadcaster, where I go live on LinkedIn every week, introducing people I know to my broader network through 1/2 hour conversations.
