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 St. Gallen and Northern Switzerland.

I also spoke to more than 100 Human Resources and Headhunters about LinkedIn Marketing and how to attract talent while helping entrepreneurs position themselves 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.

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.

Erica held several Social Media workshops for our employees about how important personal and employer branding is and what marketing activities are key to lead on LinkedIn. The feedback from myself and many our employees was impressive. She stands out with her content and her presentation inspires. Erica's engagement with the audience and her expertise is fantastic. Your audience will walk away energized and with practical tips — motivated to take action. If you are thinking about hiring Erica for your business as a consultant or trainer, I can highly recommend her.
