Testimonials for Andrea Vahl:
“Andrea was invited to give a keynote address at the annual Oracle JD Edwards Summit 2012 on the topic of “The Social Media Revolution”. The concepts, facts and material were well organized, compelling and delivered in an engaging and entertaining manner. The audience of several hundred business professions was completely attentive to Andrea’s presentation as was evidenced by the fact that not a single person left the presentation before the end.
In addition, I personally received comments directly from several attendees that Andrea’s presentation really opened their eyes about the power and importance of social media in today’s business world, and that they were inspired to get involved and use their new knowledge and appreciation. This is exactly the outcome we hoped for from this keynote. Great work Andrea and thanks also for all the good work and education you provide via the social media venues!” – Kem Butler, JD Edwards and Oracle
“Andrea Vahl was a speaker at Women, Wine, and Wellness in January of 2011. She shared tips about social media to encourage the audience to engage and consistently use social media to help their businesses. Andrea made the audience feel empowered that they could join on the social media wagon and not be intimidated by it. I recommend her as a speaker about social media to other groups.” – Lisa Shultz, Owner and Founder, Women, Wine, and Wellness
