A big thank you for participating in our Summit this past week! I continue to receive high praise for your presentation. I was impressed that you spent quality time preparing up front, as well as engaging with our licensees for the day. That preparation really allowed the presentation to come to life for the agricultural sector and made the speech all the more relevant to the audience of licensees. Andy Higgins, CEO, International Food Genomics (IFG)

Thank you again for a great event! I’m still receiving calls from folks that attended wondering when we’ll have you in town again. The tips and tricks that they took away were “priceless” and many can’t wait to implement them. I too took much away from the event. The products we sell are fully capable of providing the features needed to put your ideas to work right away for the customer. Many of my reps are already using your ideas to help sell our products. I’d almost say that we gained more from the event than our customers. But after some of the calls I have received, I’d say it’s a tossup. Brian Gray, SMB Manager, Comcast Business Class

We have truly had rave reviews about him, and I believe he is absolutely the best speaker we have had during the series. He provided exactly the kind of information our small business members needed – easy-to-understand, easy-to-do social media tips with excellent case studies to really bring the ideas alive. Laura L. Williams, Charleston Regional Chamber of Commerce

Patrick Schwerdtfeger is the most mesmerizing speaker I’ve ever encountered. His uncanny talent to explain complex business concepts utilizing digital social media in such a simple, easy to understand format is impressive. Patrick is genuine and fun! Betty Tam, MetLife Financial Services

Patrick’s presentation regarding leveraging social media with our broker advisory council was outstanding. He is very professional, provided useful and valuable points and examples that can be quickly applied to today’s business environment. Working with social media can be overwhelming for some and Patrick had a way of demonstrating how easy it can be and what possible results can be had when his techniques are applied. Our senior executives were very engaged and have asked Patrick to speak to our corporate marketing team.Kate Moher, National VP of Broker Strategy, United Healthcare

I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation last month. Your delivery was so engaging that I lost track of time. By any measure, you are a very effective speaker and educator Mitzy Russom, Blue Shield of California

The session on social networking prompted me to look more deeply into using iTunes as another vehicle for providing though leadership about my prac­tice. I am seriously looking into this and planning to FINALLY actively use at least iTunes to get more visibility to the Bay Area Consulting Group LLC and our deep expertise in IT management. Harry Chap­man, BACN founder

I learned that I had underestimated the power of YouTube and its rightful place at the Big Kids table of social media. It is in fact now part of the Big Four: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn AND YouTube. Kerry Rego, Kerry Rego Consulting
