Sandy is the ultimate professional speaker, so engaging, well-spoken and passionate about sharing her expertise for networking, mentoring and building a personal brand. I hired Sandy as our special guest speaker for the Women In Exhibitions networking breakfast event at ExhibitorLIVE 2019, and her presentation was on point for our group as we work to establish a mentorship program. Many of the 150 women in attendance raved about Sandy and stood in line to talk to her afterward. Her bright and outgoing personality made working with her easy and fun. You are in very capable hands if you hire Sandy as a speaker for your event! – Katina Rigall Zipay, Creative Director at Classic Exhibits Inc.
I attended two breakout sessions that Sandy was facilitating. One was on personal branding and the other was about networking. I signed up for these classes because neither topic is my favorite. Not only is Sandy an amazing speaker who immediately connects with her audience but she also has a way of making something many people see as quite daunting, seem not so bad. Actually, I got a little excited about getting to work using the nuggets of information she shared during both sessions. It was obvious Sandy is passionate about what she teaches and really enjoys helping others to be successful. If you have the chance to spend time with Sandy, don’t miss out on the opportunity! – Michelle Wald, Director of Business Administration
Sandy ran several workshops for our Masters and MBA students during Hult’s landmark Career Bootcamps. The fact that her style, content, and messages resonated with students hailing from 120 different countries is a testament to her skill as a facilitator and subject matter expert. I highly recommend her services to anyone ready to level up their social brand. – Walid Malouf, Senior Director – North America – Career Education and Corporate Partnerships, Hult International Business School
Sandy Jones-Kaminski recently gave a terrific presentation at ReBoot’s Immersion Accelerator which is targeted at women returning to work. Sandy received outstanding reviews from the participants with whom she shared her expertise about LinkedIn for job search and networking with a purpose. It was apparent that Sandy is an expert in her field who understood and addressed the specific needs of her audience. We look forward to having her back to address the ReBoot community again. – Patty O’Brien White, VP and Co-Founder, ReBoot Career Accelerator for Women
Sandy presented at a networking workshop for women re-entering the workforce. That’s a low-anxiety audience, right? Her session was highly useful as she was able to offer constructive tools yet delivered it as comfortable banter. Sandy is a LinkedIn-approved strategist which means she guided us to make choices that work if you’re trying to get noticed. It is obvious that Sandy is a curious person who actually *enjoys* talking to people – of course, she’s adept at networking. But the brilliance of her suggestions is that “you can do it too”, and she backed it up with clearly-outlined tips. Sandy’s presentation lessened the uncertainty I felt about being out of touch with “The Process” and gave me confidence to move forward. I would love to hear her speak again. – Thuy Anh Fox, formerly a VP with Goldman Sachs
Sandy is an incredible speaker. I had the opportunity to hear Sandy talk about two different topics: how to leverage LinkedIn during a job search and how to network. She made both relevant to new and experienced job hunters by including a wide variety of tips and demonstrating each tool. Sandy is extremely knowledgeable about both topics. Her talk was well-organized, easy to follow, and included actionable steps. I’d definitely attend her talks again! – Vickie Katzenelson, Product Manager and Founder of MicoApps
Sandy’s session focusing on LinkedIn for CFOs and other guests of Financial Executives International’s Silicon Valley Chapter was outstanding, interactive, and packed with actionable suggestions appropriate for the audience. Her content is up to date, well presented and suitable for senior executives of any discipline. I highly recommend her as a resource for individuals needing to upgrade their social media intelligence, savvy and presence on LinkedIn.
– Mark Muenchow, SVP Financial Executives International, Silicon Valley Chapter
“Sandy is a trainer “extraordinaire” and engaging speaker who makes marketing seem effortless on the digital platform. She an invaluable resource for those of us who are still learning to navigate the social media or are just too darn busy to learn the time saving tricks/tips. Utilizing her strategic marketing expertise, she leverages her LinkedIn knowledge to craft the right messages for her clients’ audiences about people, experience and products/services. Our team invested in a coaching session and all benefited from her knowledge. Thank you, Sandy!”
– Leslie Thompson, Architecture & Design Manager, Teknion
Sandy came and presented to the Tri Valley Consultants Forum last month and was a huge hit! We got lots of specific, actionable tips on how to help us better utilize LinkedIn. If your organization is interested in mastering this new platform, I highly recommend Sandy! – Ken Perine, CFP, Meritage Wealth Advisory
Sandy gave a dual presentation to our team at Sterling Communications, first acting as a LinkedIn sherpa for mastering our profiles and managing our connections; then offering advice for taking the sting out of in-person networking. I had unexpected fun at an open house later the same night as a result AND met three new interesting people! She is incredibly informative and approachable. – Deirdre Blake, Senior Content Manager at Sterling Communications, Sr. Editor at Java and Oracle Magazines
Sandy Jones-Kaminski is a woman who knows her stuff. Not only is she a wealth of information, she graciously shares it as well. Her talk at the SF Chapter of the International Coach Federation was jammed packed with extremely helpful LinkedIn tips that were easily implemented. Her warmth and style makes her very approachable and a joy to work with. She definitely left us wanting more.
– Donna Camille, Coach, Speaker, Breakthrough Coaching
Sandy was invited to ProKarma’s Annual Global Summit as a guest speaker. She provided valuable insight into the trends in social selling and focused on maximizing how to best set-up and use LinkedIn. She has an in-depth knowledge and was able to keep the audience engaged by keeping the presentation interactive. The entire group came away with valuable information and we are already seeing a nice benefit in a short period of time. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn valuable LinkedIn techniques.
– Kristen Crawford, VP Strategic Accounts, ProKarma
I had the pleasure of working with Sandy of Bella Domain Media at one of our LinkedIn Live events. Sandy graciously agreed to speak on Marketing on LinkedIn at our event with the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce. She was friendly and outgoing. Her presentation was engaging and her messages hit home with the audience. Sandy continues to be a resource for me to bounce ideas off of. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I appreciate her knowledge and diligence with our event.– Renee M., SMB Marketing at LinkedIn
After hearing Sandy speak at a Women In Consulting lunch, I’m inspired to up my game on LinkedIn. Sandy is an engaging and fun speaker, and does a great job of tailoring her content for the audience. Our audience had a range of LinkedIn expertise and comfort. Everyone came away with useful and actionable information – from the relative novices to the expert practitioners.
- Anne Janzer, Cuesta Park Consulting, Author of Subscription Marketing: Strategies for Nurturing Your Customers in a World of Churn
“Sandy was a guest speaker for our Mind the Bridge Startup School, and presented an outstanding seminar on how to use LinkedIn. She demonstrated a deep, uncommon knowledge of the subject and maintained an excellent rapport with the class. I would recommend her unequivocally…” – Charles Versaggi, Mind The Bridge
Sandy is a powerful connector and a strong speaker. She has command of her topic (networking), and is engaging, informative, and to the point but in a warm and friendly fashion with great stories and case studies. Authenticity and integrity are her touch stones, and she encourages others to be themselves and relax about networking. Sandy’s a real breath of fresh air!
– Kelli Richards, CEO, The All Access Group LLC
Sandy was the featured speaker at a consulting group I belong to and spoke on the topic “12 Rules of Networking: Making Connections Matter.” I was very excited to hear her speak and she didn’t disappoint. Sandy has a beautiful relaxed style that makes you feel as if you are curled up with a warm cup of coffee sitting next to the fire while she shares her personal insights. Too often speakers wax poetic on their opinions of how things should be but never give you anything of real substance. Not so with Sandy: the information she shared was specific, relevant, useful, and actionable. Sandy is clearly the go-to person if you want to improve your skills and effectiveness at networking. I highly recommend her as a speaker.
– Debbi Collins Babb, Reach Your Peak Coaching
Sandy offered a “Making Connections Matter” webinar for my company along with an industry organization, Women in Facilities Maintenance & Construction. It’s obvious that Sandy loves what she does, is great at it and lives it every day. She only had one hour with us during a webinar to educate us on how to improve our networking skills. The result? 100 of our attendees polled said they enjoyed the webinar. More importantly, I look forward to staying in touch with Sandy and using her tips at an upcoming trade show that I will be attending. – Diane Connolly Kidawa, Marketing Manager, NEST – Multi-Facility Management
Sandy Jones-Kaminski was a guest speaker at one of last year’s CSIX CONNECT’s meetings. Her presentation was well received, so we felt it was important to ask her come back again this year for another workshop to our new members. Despite her busy schedule and the long commute, she accepted our offer to be CSIX’s guest speaker on November 29th, 2012. As we had anticipated, her workshop of “12 Rules of Effective Networking” attracted a large audience and most everyone walked away from the meeting very pleased with what they had learned from the workshop. Her presentation style along with the content and relevance to our members, made her talk a very engaging and beneficial to the audience. I highly recommend Sandy Jones-Kaminski as an effective presenter and hope to have her as our guest speaker again in the near future. – Hamid Saadat, CSIX CONNECT
I was at a tech-oriented conference today (Failcon) and used your “What are you working on?” question a number of times. I wanted to let you know that it felt comfortable and authentic, and it was an effective conversation starter with several conference attendees, all of whom were at the conference for different reasons. I may have been one of the first to buy 2 copies of your book at your presentation on Saturday and believe I got more than my money’s worth when I learned about the question quoted above. – Gilbert Wai, formerly VP Engineering, Velocity11
As advisor to a large membership association Board of Directors, I recommended Sandy to provide a networking tutorial to our members. Her very personable approach and highly informative content gave our members a practical approach to networking at our most recent conference. The comments from them ranged from “outstanding presentation” to “learned a new skill that I put to work immediately at the conference”. Sandy has a very easy going presentation style that brings the art of networking to people who were too shy to approach others. I have seen it work to tremendous effectiveness. I recommend Sandy to anyone wishing to learn the skill.
– Nov Omana, OHUG Board, Collection HR Solutions
Sandy’s presentation was an eye-opener! She had so much inside information regarding LinkedIn’s robust capabilities. She defined everything in an easy to understand presentation that was personable and on target.
– Teresa S., SFPCN
I recently attended a webinar where Sandy was the guest speaker and presented “12 Steps to Effective Networking”. I found Sandy’s presentation very insightful as she provided helpful tips and creatively fielded a number of challenging questions from the audience. I will very diligently try to apply Sandy’s suggestions in my own professional and personal networking activities. Thanks for all the good ideas Sandy. You’re obviously a real pro on all things networking.
– Jeffrey M., Xerox
Sandy presented an excellent webinar on the “12 Rules of Effective Networking” for WITI (Women In Technology International). Her book “I’m at a Networking Event – Now What???” was just ranked #1 on Inc.com’s 2010 Holiday Business Book Gift Guide, and based upon her webinar, I can understand why. She covered all aspects of networking, from how to prepare to how to follow-up. Congratulations Sandy on your book and your excellent webinar! For anyone who needs to learn how to network more effectively or just needs to polish up their skills, she is a great resource.
– Kathy Hill, Women in Technology International
I attended Sandy’s 12 Rules of Effective Networking webinar and received a wealth of knowledge. It’s a must for those looking to develop meaningful contacts and truly expand a trusted network of colleagues.
– Lory Fraraccio-Kenney
Sandy’s not comfortable with the title, “Guru” – but that’s exactly what she is… A networking GURU, with the moxie and insights to truly help people improve their networking skills. Sandy’s straightforward approach is a breath of fresh air, as it lets both her and anyone she’s consulting get to the heart of the matter and start solving problems. Sandy recently spoke with my networking group, and everyone left smarter than when they arrived.
– Kelly Evans, Founder, One Connection Away
Sandy, thanks for speaking at our expanded toast in April. You have great energy and are very personable. Hope to work with you again soon!
– Gabriella Buono, Director of Small Business Programs & Events at Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce
Our first networking workshop was last week (the 2nd) and it was a success. Our primary goal was to provide people with tools for effective networking and that happened to a very enjoyable degree. Sandy Jones-Kaminski did a terrific job talking about how to start conversations effectively and de-mythologizing the whole networking process. She created a bookmark that has, what she refers to, as “Four Myths of Networking” which she shared with us. She then gave her audience some really useful phrases that can be for starting conversations. Those conversations then often lead to developing useful relationships; relationships where both sides have a sense of how they can help the other person.
– Steve Paul, Notes from the Job Search
Sandy delivered an outstanding presentation for our college students on using Linked In for networking and job searches. She excels at targeting her material and engaging her audience with valuable insights and useful information. She is a delight to work with and I highly recommend her as your next speaker.
– Karrie McCracken, Seattle Pacific University
Sandy provided an outstanding presentation on Networking at the Roche Palo Alto Career Transition Center. She was engaging and high energy but most of all afterwards people kept saying, “now I can do this.” She gave very specific examples that allowed people to walk out and try what she suggested. She brought it to a very personal level and allowed people to lose their fear of networking!
– Rebecca Kieler, hired Sandy for a Training/presentation in 2010
