Marco LobregatSandy is an expert in building professional and personal brands online. I made the wise choice of contracting her services last year when I decided to make a shift in my career to further my personal development and increase my income while pursuing my passions.

Sandy’s advice and guidance helped me professionalize my LinkedIn account and leverage my network to open more opportunities. She was even able to connect me with other professionals in the areas of work I was exploring to give me better insight and a foot in the door. Since working with her, I have not only received numerous opportunities via LinkedIn, I have strengthened both my network and net worth.

I highly recommend engaging Sandy and seeing how she can help you further your career, build your brand or grow your business.

Rosanne KimSandy is an amazing resource and partner and so full of energy. I worked with Sandy during a job transition and was impressed by her deep understanding of LinkedIn and her ability to navigate the nuances of the platform to help me create a personalized, authentic profile that better captures who I am and what I have to offer. She also taught me how easy it can be to make simple changes to extend my personal brand whether that be through networking or social media. In addition, Sandy is very personable, customizes her approach and is all around fun to work with!

Diana Rothschild, clientSandy’s help was quite valuable. She helped me learn the details around LI’s approach to showcasing its members, and how to get the most out of updating my profile – everything from what to put where to helping me wordsmith key sections of my profile. And I’ve already seen an uptick in Profile Views in the short time since we worked together.

Diana Rothschild, Head of Strategic Partnerships, TaskRabbit

Laura Zavelson, happy clientI worked with Sandy while I was trying to generate some new work opportunities and needed some help marketing my personal brand. She helped me look at LinkedIn as a much more powerful tool than just an online version of my resume. Additionally, she helped me look at my accomplishments through a new lens. I think it’s often difficult to write about your own successes and it’s great to have a person who has worked with a wide variety of people and profiles help you discover ways to differentiate yourself. I highly recommend working with Sandy — she’s very welcoming, friendly, easy to work with and deeply knowledgeable about networking and LinkedIn.

Maggie Lesslie - integrated marketing consultantI asked Sandy to help me out with some strategic Linkedin advice that I needed to give me some confidence with a client, as LI isn’t my usual platform.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and I appreciate her knowledge and diligence with our event.

Sandy is a valuable resource for developing entrepreneurs like myself. Sandy’s insights and recommendations are clear and actionable. Her excellent “Making Connections Matter” webcast (9/25/2014) on using LinkedIn was packed with easy-to-digest information. There was not a piece of “fluff” in the whole hour. (THANK YOU for valuing my time!) Previously, I had no idea that LinkedIn could be a strategic platform for me and had pretty much ignored it. After Sandy’s webcast, I now realize that it will be indispensable. If there were stars here, I’d give Sandy a 5-star rating!

Thanks so much for your willingness to talk to WIC this week.  I loved the audience’s reaction to you – though they’re always welcoming, I don’t usually hear such immediate laughter and warmth from this audience, but you had them from the very start.  I had a number of people come up and thank me for bringing you to speak and /or saying how much they enjoyed your talk.  I hope you sold a few books. Thanks again.

Magazine and Corporate Communications Writer, Laura HilgersI hired Sandy to help beef up my LinkedIn profile, and was very pleased with her services. She thoroughly explained how to raise my profile, walking me through every step, and I came away feeling significantly more informed and confident about making the most of this networking tool. She’s a great asset for any small business owner.

Emily Cohen, writer and lots moreThe two hours I spent with Sandy discussing my objectives and reviewing my LinkedIn profile were the best, most cost-effective two hours I’ve spent in a long time! Not only is Sandy an expert at virtually every aspect of LinkedIn, but also she makes the entire process fun and enjoyable. What’s more, since I’ve made the changes Sandy suggested, I have seen an increase in both the quality and quantity of my business leads. That’s ROI defined.

Todd Nagle, VinoeticI had the pleasure to gain Sandy’s insight on the business development of my company Vinoetic Inc. Sandy brings a generous spirit in her approach, both in sharing relevant information, perspective and her undeniable desire to see her clients succeed. Sandy’s background in brand development and especially her experience in market research of consumer data presented her as an ideal sounding board for Vinoetic. Sandy quickly captured the essence of Vinoetic via targeted and educated questions. Even more impressive was her ability to grasp our company’s long-term vision. She helped us shape our key messages to our clients in a way that spoke genuinely about who we are and why we do what we do. I recommend her work and look forward to utilizing her enthusiastic talents in the future.

Kelly Evans One Connection AwaySandy’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.

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.

Rebecca K, career transitionsSandy provided an outstanding presentation on Networking at the Roche Palo Alto Career Transition Center. She was engaging and high energy but most of all afterward 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 Networking Training/presentation in 2010Patricia here, I met you Wednesday evening at the event in Cupertino. I appreciated your talk and your feedback. I have read your book and am committed to starting proactive networking.During the networking session, you wisely (and gently) pointed out that I needed to get clear on my goals. It basically hit me right between the eyes! I have been flirting with finding a new role for a year, and haven’t been clear.You asked for an answer about what I was looking for – the answer is a “Program Management role.” I will work to fill in some details and get my communications in line with that goal. Thank you for sharing your expertise and getting me focused.
All the best,

Columbia HospitalityOctober 2008Sandy works at great length to understand the context of her engagement — the business model, history, competitors, technology, etc., which helps her be more effective in her work. During her work at Jobster, she was great at representing our organization while reaching out to potential partners, establishing many new relationships, and mending any past relationships that may have gone sour. Sandy was responsible for forging many of the successful partnerships we have today. I’d happily work with Sandy again given the opportunity.
