Lina presented to my group, The Council of Women Executives, on the topic of creating an online presence through Twitter and LinkedIn. Her presentation was very well done, and incorporated both hands-on learning as well as a solid grounding in the basic knowledge of social media. Everyone in our group was blown away by what they learnt, and had nothing but great things to say about Lina’s style and interaction with users of all levels. I would highly recommend Lina for your next event.

Lina ran a great workshop on online branding for our students. They all rated Lina and her workshop with top evaluations (5 out of 5) on objectives, expectations, and learnings. Some of their key learnings included the importance of Twitter for professional networking, the potential and future opportunities of social media online presence, optimization of social media profiles, practical tips on tweets and social media (e.g. content, frequency, timing), all delivered by Lina in an engaging and energetic way that made the workshop fun as well as educational. I highly recommend Lina for her expertise and work.

Lina spoke to my class of 4th year/Honours students at York University on leveraging social media as a career management tool. Her lecture was incredibly informative and engaging. I know the students took a lot from it. I was also pleased with the students – they were “with us” just about the entire time and were appreciative of all the tips and tools that Lina shared. Thank you Lina for a great job!

We approached Lina to give a seminar on personal branding to our members, and she delivered a talk that was fun, engaging and highly informative. She very clearly laid out the benefits of having a strong and cohesive internet presence, gave straightforward steps and clear examples, and shared with us easy-to-implement tips. Lina was incredibly professional throughout, and true to form as a social media expert, came up with great ways to engage our members and audience before, during and after the event. Thank you, Lina!

Our guests were really able to take something away from Lina's knowledge and ideas on the utilization of social media and digital platforms. Her light-hearted sense of humour and her authenticity shone through. A great speaker. She will make any seminar or event exceptional!
