Erica Kessler - International Linkedin Speaker and Lecturer

Erica Kessler Linkedin strategist trainer lecturer speaker in Lucerne Switzerland

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 University of St. Gallen, University of Zurich, University of Lucerne 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. To name some, Swisscom (Schweiz) AG, Hilti (Schweiz) AG, Holcim Ltd., Pilatus Aircraft Ltd.

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.

Some of my satisfied clients

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 various Linkedin 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 with enthusiastic feedback.
