Andrea is a vibrant and knowledgeable Digital Warrior with expansive understanding of content marketing across AsiaPac! I attended her one day workshop and thought I had a basic knowledge of the digital world ….. I learned so much more! I have now a refreshed understanding of content marketing and the power of social mediums such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc…. I’d rate the workshop 10/10. Andrea both personally and professionally comes with my highest support and recommendation.

Judith Jamieson

Regional People and Culture Director South Asia Pacific at World Vision

Andrea ran a Social Media training – it was both very insightful on the importance of Personal Branding and very helpful in navigating through the multiple platforms. Her delivery was fun and authentic using her own life and work experiences in social media and personal branding. Highly recommend Andrea for any advice on Social Media or Personal Branding.

Charles Reed Anderson

Vice President, Head of Mobility & Internet of Things, IDC Asia/Pacific

I had the pleasure of attending Andrea’s one-day personal branding course a few weeks ago. As a technology industry analyst, I regularly use social media to share my insights and point of view on industry trends and announcements – and this course provided me with numerous ways to improve my social media strategy and impact, including many tips on how to increase my followers on LinkedIn and Twitter and better engage with them. I applied many of these hints in the week after the event and I can confirm that I am already seeing the benefits. This course was a great use of my time and I highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to build their personal brand.

Natural Beauty Entrepreneur, Co-founder Biconi

I had my doubts walking into Andrea’s workshop if it will be a waste of time, and I went home convinced it was worth every cent. Andrea has the gift of being able to precisely pinpoint how I can start to build my own personal brand online in a matter of minutes – a question I have been struggling with for months without getting anywhere. Magic.

Managing local Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, IBM NZ

I recently had the opportunity to attend a presentation/development session at IBM New Zealand from Andrea on using social media.

I entered the presentation sceptical, as I’ve attended past training on social media training that had either been very procedural (click next to log into LinkedIn, etc) or wishy washy on the whys of social media, with no clear perspective on why I should do anything. What Andrea covered was neither of those.

It was a pragmatic session on what it delivers for me personally, as well as useful tips to improve my social media eminence. Most of it was focused on the former, which was great to hear. And the tips were simple and easy to execute (which I’ve been using since).

The session was the best use of my time on social media training compared to any of my past (poor) training! Thank you IBM NZ for arranging this, it was great value.

Stephanie Krishnan

Executive Director, Rutgers Business School, Asia Pacific

When I introduced Andrea at a talk recently, I noted that when she walks in to a room she is known by many. In her presentation to Rutgers’ students in Singapore, she gave a number of pointers on how to further their personal brand, and how that can relate to their companies. What has impressed me is the follow up, with Andrea walking the talk in terms of post-event links and social messages. It is great to see someone who does what they say, and does it with such authenticity. Thanks, Andrea.

That’s 6 hours of my life I don’t want back!

The reverse is what is said on many a training course but this is probably the best course I have ever attended. It was motivational, inspirational, attention grabbing and one that made me excited to get home and get cracking, not to mention sharing this whole heartedly with many of my friends and colleagues.

What was the course…Personal Branding. The mere words cultivate cynicism and uncertainty but the content of this course, teamed with an amazing coach, really was the best use of 6 hours (to the point where I didn’t want to go to the bathroom in case I missed anything!).

Imagine social media being transformed into a world of opportunity, one where you get to stand out, where you get to have a voice and one which can lead to opening doors you never thought existed. If this sounds appealing to you then I encourage you to attend this course delivered by @andreatedwards as it creates a buzz, an excitement that makes you itch to get started. I have new ideas on blogs and brand-new ways to connect with the world through so many different channels. I encourage you to share the same experience I have!

Professional Speaker, Consultant, Writer, Founding Partner Flame Centre

We spent the afternoon learning about social media strategies with Andrea. I went away with much more clarity about the what, why and how of leveraging social media. The key message that is different is not to use social media to sell ourselves, but to provide value and build relationships. This is a key differentiation. Andrea brings her heart and expertise to the work, she is passionate about sharing and giving, which makes her a joy to work with. Thank you Andrea!
