Certified LinkedIn Specialist
March 2013 - at Present
State of New South Wales
Simply put, I am the LinkedIn Ninja Downunder. I have a degree and solid background in marketing and over 20 years corporate experience. When I work with clients utilising my experience since 2008 with LinkedIn and implementing the Black Belt Certification I hold in LinkedIn my clients get great results. LinkedIn is a constantly changing and evolving platform and it is virtually a full-time job just keeping up with the changes. I love marketing and LinkedIn is one of the most direct forms of B2B marketing available today. My focus is on lead generation using LinkedIn not HR or recruitment and there are so many tricks and tips I can show you so save you time and money on the phenomenal platform.
Managing Director - Social Media Specialist
January 2002 - February 2013
State of New South Wales
Although I started out as a Marketing Consultant my business morphed over time into more and more social media. By 2012 I had grown to a team of 14 and together we managing Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter and LinkedIn for approx 90 clients. Once I was approached to study the LinkedIn Ninja Certification I realised how little I actually knew about the power of LinkedIn and felt truly embarrassed that my business was charging our clients for what I realise now was very average work. Don't get me wrong, we got results for our clients, but I had really only scratched the surface of what LinkedIn could do and I know knew what I didn't know when I started the accreditation. The information I was now armed with was so phenomenal we were doubling and tripling the great results we had previously been getting for our clients, I had to let as many people know as I could beyond our own clients. So over the next 12 months, I didn't renew client contracts and dived into LinkedIn Consulting.

LinkedIn done for you profile building
When people are just too busy to build a great lead converting LinkedIn profile, I can build it for you.
LinkedIn In-house training
This is where I come to you in a corporate environment. I work with senior executives and sales teams to design a company lead strategy where the hard work each employee does stay's with the company and doesn't leave when the employee leaves. I always have the company in mind and the boss loves the fact that the recruiters seem to 'disappear' once the profiles have been done by a LinkedIn Ninja.
