Nishan Weerasinghe

CMO, IBM Systems for Cloud

Andrea is the best Personal Branding and Content Marketing mentor I’ve had the fortune to work with. Wherever she goes, she empowers.

David Cook

Global Communications Director, GE

Andrea understands content and what to do with it better than anyone and her strategic, common sense and realistic approach on all things ‘social’ is a breath of fresh air. Above all else, she’s a communications professional who knows how to have an impact and be effective over the long term. Andrea is a very positive and generous person with a genuine passion for what she does. She’s terrific.

Sean Yeo

Account Executive, LinkedIn

Walked in a cynic, came out inspired.

Eric Schnatterly

Vice President, IBM Systems, Asia Pacific

You have taught us much and inspired us more. We are all grateful for the contributions you made to the IBM team to give us the skills, and instil in us the passion, to amplify our authentic voice and personal brand.

Christian Raetzsch

CTO, IBM Asia Pacific

Fabulous how energetic and with lots of very practical advice you helped me and many on my team to use social media and establish a social presence! Keep going 🙂

Kylie Barry

APAC Recruitment Manager, RBS

I met Andrea when we were seeking a professional trainer to help RBS employees update their LinkedIn profiles to improve job search opportunities. I cannot say enough about the impact Andrea has had on the 200+ employees that have attended her sessions. More than updating LinkedIn, Andrea is getting people to tap into what they stand for and she encourages them to go out into the world as an ambassador for themselves first, and their business second.

I have watched people’s lives completely change from this training, as they come out inspired, impassioned and ready to take ownership of their future through the amazing tools we have available to us today on social media. Andrea lives and breathes this stuff, but more than anything, she passes her passion on to her audience and considering the vast cultural mix of our employees, it’s saying something that she can touch so many with her message. I enjoy working with Andrea immensely, and if you are seeking to train your employees to be ambassadors for your brand, or are going through changes and want to help your employees find new work, I could not recommend a professional more. Andrea is great to work with and I promise you something else – you’re going to have a lot of fun working with Andrea too!

Shalaka Verma

Technical Sales Executive, Storage and Software Defined Solutions, IBM Asia Pacific

Thank you Andrea for being the guiding star. It was fun to learn and apply. You were too good in communicating the nuisances of the art, without being too complicated or preachy.

Ira Santiago

Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft

Even as a marketer for 13 years, it was great learning how to use social sites to share my voice and build relationships. It was important to shift from a traditional way of seeing social sites as a way of socializing, as to personal branding and making a difference.

Stewart Lee

Head of Mid-Market Sales, SE Asia, LinkedIn

I’m a leader in social selling for a social media company. I need to invest more in my digital reputation to aide career and team sales.

Sunny Panjabi

Content Marketing and Social Media Marketing Manager, IBM Innovation Services, Asia Pacific

IBM engaged Andrea to train senior executives, sales and technical personnel on personal branding and social leadership. And boy, did she deliver! She has a powerful gift of bringing out the human side even in the most unflappable of people. She connects with them in deep and meaningful ways, and they treat her as a personal friend and confidante. I am proud to say that I am one of the lucky few!
She has cutting edge knowledge in her field and so far, not one person she has trained has not found value in what she has to offer. She has the rare ability to make people delve deep into themselves and realise their own personal magic.
In today’s era of apathy, disruption, and the unpredictable, Andrea can point your organisation in the right direction of being human, empathetic, and using your gifts to uplift the world.
