“Jeff is a proven leader in the IT industry, and specifically the area of security and coaching. I have had the opportunity to get to know Jeff the past 5 years, and he has provided valuable insight to me as an IT professional. Having over 20yrs of IT and business experience myself, I have rarely met anyone with the knowledge and experience Jeff has and the ability to deliver this information to his audience. Jeff recently presented to our group of professionals an overview of using LinkedIn as a business tool. Incredible knowledge and depth of not only the tool but provided specific uses as it related to our industry. Jeff has a strong business background and outstanding presentation skills. I would highly recommend bringing Jeff in as a speaker for your group for coaching or the use of industry tools like LinkedIn to help your professionals.” December 19, 2011

"So I’m at 936 connections and leveraging LinkedIn as much as possible. When we met for lunch back in November (ish) I was approaching 200. Seems like I should celebrate when I hit the first 1000!" (This message came to me last week. John followed my advice and look where he is today. Click John's name below and send him an invite if you wish. He is an Open Networker)John followed my advice and used Open Networker as one of the techniques to build his LinkedIn network. Though I can't tell you exactly how fast your network will grow, I can tell you that 3.5 years ago, my network was at 7,000 direct connections and today, I surpassed 26,000 direct connections. In early December, John's network was at 200 and it is now approaching 1,000 direct connections. This system works!
“Jeff is well known within the IT industry and has an impeccable reputation as a senior security recruiter for cyber and corporate security. That said, my experience with Jeff started when I attended one of his speaking engagements on the topic of social media and specifically LinkedIn. Jeff has been using and evaluating social media as it develops and had the foresight several years ago to recognize the value of LinkedIn and became an early adopter. If you have not yet leveraged LinkedIn or need to understand more about its capabilities and how to use it in conjunction with other formats I would highly recommend attending one of Jeff's session. He is an excellent public speaker and subject matter expert on LinkedIn who ignores the temptation to work from a script and as a result you are likely to learn a great deal more than you anticipate. I highly recommend Jeff and a speaker or mentor on the topic of social media as it pertains to the business environment and specifically LinkedIn.” December 8, 2011
