Erica Kessler - International LinkedIn Speaker and Lecturer
I'm an inspiring Swiss entrepreneur with a global network. I share my powerful energy, connect with the audience and inspire so that the audience takes immediate action. I share the latest trends, best practices, tips and tricks about LinkedIn and social media marketing.
Just five years ago, I only used Facebook but rarely shared anything—but then I began using LinkedIn, added connections from people I knew in person and began sharing my social media stories both online and offline.
On March 2015, I participated at the Social Media Marketing World in San Diego and connected with the industry leaders and my peers in person. I loved it so much and came back a few months later to learn all about LinkedIn Marketing and bring it to my hometown of Switzerland.
My goal is to inspire people that underestimate LinkedIn to take action with their career, business and their lives with LinkedIn Marketing.
I then began speaking at startup events and was then invited to be a guest speaker at the HSG, University of Zurich, HSG and University of Northern Switzerland.
I also spoke to more than 200 employees at organizations, Human Resources and Headhunters about LinkedIn Marketing and how to attract talent while helping CEO's, teams, organizations, mid-size SME's and NGO's position themselves as leaders on LinkedIn and gain clients online.
My goal is to inspire people that underestimate LinkedIn to take action with their career, business and their lives.
I'm also focused on building bridges between Switzerland and the United States. It’s my purpose to expand my insight globally by sharing my experiences on stage.
Customized speech to inspire your audience and support your goals.

Social networks are important instruments for career engagement and career planning, therefore we are very happy to have Erica as our powerful and inspiring expert for LinkedIn. In her workshops she empowers the students to use the potential of professional social networks. She encourages not only by demonstrating the functionalities and explaining the strategies how to use LinkedIn for career search strategies, but also by offering the students to connect with her after setting up a profile. The students who do so receive a personal feedback, a special gift we think. That will be the reason why Erica's workshops are fully booked every time. We are highly excited about our ongoing cooperation and look forward to the team training, where she will also empower us to use the full potential of LinkedIn.

I invited Erica twice to lecture AISTS participants on LinkedIn and also once for AISTS alumni. Each time her lecture was very much appreciated as very detailed, practical and enthusiastic. Erica is really an expert of LinkedIn and gives very valuable insights. You can feel that she is fully committed to support people in making the most of LinkedIn. What is also very nice is that Erica remains always available for follow-up questions, always answering promptly. It is a real pleasure to work with Erica and I highly recommend her for LinkedIn lectures.
