It’s been very gratifying to speak to and train hundreds of companies and tens of thousands of people over the years. I have more than 1250+ Recommendations on my LinkedIn Profile which is actually far, far more than any of the other 150,000,000 LinkedIn users worldwide. Here are some of my more recent testimonials:
“I had the great fortune to hire Kevin to conduct a seminar for our team on leveraging social networking (specifically LinkedIn) for our business. Even better, I was able to participate in the seminar. Kevin’s presentation was absolutely outstanding. He clarified the objectives upfront (ensuring his content was relevant to us), tailored his content, pace and detail of information to the team assembled (seemingly on the fly), was personable, humorous, engaging and EXTREMELY informative. Even better, I have already seen the impact of his presentation on our team. His content is relevant and 100% actionable. Kevin’s presentation was probably the best investment our company has made in the past 6 months. I would strongly endorse Kevin to anyone curious as to how to leverage the emerging social networking tools to grow their business, establish their company brand (as well as their personal brand) and grow their business through personal networking. I anticipate significant ROI from this investment. Thank you Kevin. You rock!” David Hyatt -President, Corvirtus, LLC
“Kevin Knebl is my Hero! Knebl Communication’s class on “LinkedIn” has significantly reduced the timeline for bringing the new Murphy Company Branch on line. Kevin is a strong communicator, giving clear direction utilizing outstanding techniques that hold your attention and achieve results. His strategic thinking, practical, clear direction allows him to communicate the tasking that can be easily applied to every type of business. This promotes a quicker return on your investment. The relationship that I have developed through “LinkedIn” from his seminar has already allowed me to win a $500,000.00 project with a brand new customer without competition! Finding this individual and developing a relationship through standard networking practices would have taken a year or more. The timeline was dramatically shortened. I have recently taken an additional class from Kevin that has expanded my knowledge and use of this valuable tool. This class too was outstanding! I consider it an honor to call him a colleague and friend. His friendly cheerful manner makes his programs just that much better!” Vicki C. -Account Manager at Murphy Company
“At our sales meeting this morning, the 30+year Executive Sales people were asked “What could the new salespeople be doing to develop their business?” The immediate reply was “Spend 100% of their time doing everything Kevin Knebl was talking about this weekend.” This is a major endorsement coming from the guys who Kicked It Old School “…standing in lobbies wondering: is anyone going to talk to me?” – these salespeople saw instantly how Kevin’s training on Social Media will accelerate the relationship development process. They also noted the ability to track online attention that our competition may be getting. They get it – not just the new computer-savvy kids, but also the guys who spent miles behind the windshield, banging on doors and combatting the gatekeepers. The relationship building focus of Kevin’s seminar eclipses the technology aspect, putting the technology in its place as the relationship building tool that it is. Thank you! Having known Kevin throughout 15 years, I can attribute my personal success in large part to his mentoring, his teaching and his example. I can attribute much of my personal and business success directly to him – because I use his tools and steal his best lines every day! Paul Yost -President, Sutherland Packaging, Inc.
“Myself and a few other people from our firm attended Kevin’s Linkedin and Twitter class. We saw such a huge value in this that we immediately asked Kevin to customize a presentation for our firm and fly down to Texas to present it. Being in the financial services industry, we have many special considerations when it comes to implementing a social media strategy. Kevin worked closely with us to ensure we were taking full advantage of the benefits while remaining compliant. For anyone embarking on a social media strategy for their firm, I would highly recommend attending one of Kevin’s seminars. He was professional, fun, and extremely knowledgeable. Our company has benefited greatly from his teachings.” Bart Daniel -Senior Vice-President, Advisors Asset Management, Inc.
“Recently I attended one of Kevin’s talks on the benefits that Social Media can provide to a business. Linking In is one thing, but using it to add to your business’s bottom line is quite another. Kevin showed me how to build meaningful business relationships, how to connect with people who need and want my products and services, and gain increased visibility for my business. If you haven’t attended one of Kevin’s talks or classes you need to. It opens up a whole new world of opportunity that is otherwise passing you by.” Eric J. -Owner, Minuteman Press
“I attended Kevin’s class on social networking using LinkedIn. I have also used Kevin for individual consultation regarding LinkedIn and Twitter. I am truly amazed that a single person has amassed the knowledge that Kevin has at his finger tips. He knows so much about this stuff, it is almost like trying to drink from a fire hose when you hear him talk about it. However, he does have a talent for breaking it down into simple terms and making it easy to understand. Kevin has provided me with invaluable ways to use LinkedIn and Twitter to further my business. After hearing him speak or meeting with him in person, the anticipation of implementing what Kevin has recommended makes it hard to sleep at night until his recommendations are all put into practice. I highly recommend Kevin for training and consultation on all of your social networking needs. I will definitely continue using Kevin for his expertise in that area.” Mike D. -Attorney
“I had the good fortune to recently attend a Linkedin presentation by Kevin. Though the level of content covered could be considered “basic,” I found the session very informative and came away inspired with new ideas. While most classes in Linkedin focus on method and systematic processes, Kevin offers more of an approach–a road map or guide. Beyond mere technique, you’ll find a new way of thinking about creating and nurturing professional relationships online and offline. I recommend Kevin wholeheartedly.” Ted Y. -Accomplished Multi-Channel, Email, Ecommerce, Database, and Direct Marketing Professional
“I’ve just returned from one of Kevin’s seminars for the second time, bringing a colleague this time. Kevin is simply one of those professionals that you can trust and count on to provide a wealth of information directly, concisely and in a comfortable and enjoyable environment. There was as much ‘usable’ information the second time as there was the first. His business serving manner reflects his heart and willingness to help others. Kevin comfortably embraces his relationships and professional manner, which is demonstrated by the unqualified success he achieves in his business endeavors. Kevin’s creativity, attention to detail and understanding of his speaking subject makes it very easy to recommend him for ALL of your public speaking and training needs.” Dick H. G. -Owner/Co-Founder at My Dream Trips, LLC
“Kevin’s is extremely knowledgeable in business and professional networking and communications. More importantly, he has a unique ability to relate his expertise to an audience. Even though I thought I was well versed in networking, Ken was able to give me new insights into more effectively utilizing LinkedIn in a very short period of time.” Chuck T. -President High Plains Consulting Group, LLC
“I came away from Kev’s LinkedIn networking presentation wishing that it would never end. In the limited timeframe, Kev presented key strategies, techniques and resources that helped me broaden my networking connections. Off the many practices discussed, I was impressed by the words — what I can do for you — instead of — what you can do for me. Kev’s ability to talk intelligently and hold his audiences attention is a gift. I’d recommend any presentation that Kev is offering. He’s worth listening to.” Elaine T. -Office Manager at EFA Services, Inc.
“Communication is essential for business. There are a few who can teach effective communication, but I know of only Kevin Knebl who can do so with creativity. His techniques inspire people to make any business connection beneficial and enjoyable. Truly, any business would greatly benefit from listening to what he has to say.” DeEon W. -University Student
“I attended Knebl Communication’s LinkedIn Training webinar and was blown away by the additional information I learned in this short period of time that will enable me to continue to professionally sell in today’s market. Although I thought I knew how to navigate and utilize the Linked-In site, Kevin showed me three tricks that instantly enabled me to approach my prospects more professionally and improved my ability to communicate on a more personable level. In today’s day and age when relationships mean everything and every advantage helps when within the” final three feet”, this course instantly provides assistance in improving a sales persons effectiveness in that space. I highly recommend taking this course to improve your professional sales capabilities. This is the second type of course that I have attended on social media, and the difference with Kevin’s content is that “he gets it”… meaning he understands the value of the data and how to help utilize that knowledge as an additional part of how we need to be communicating in a professional business to business setting, instead of just farming the data and spamming into internet space. Invest in this seminar, the message and the impact will be immediate.” Mark T. -Solution Sales Professional
“I heartily recommend Kevin Knebl as a consultant for networking training, including effective use of LinkedIn as a networking tool. Kevin met with the staff of my company in Pittsburgh PA, Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. Kevin began by outlining keys to effective interpersonal relationships, then detailed how LinkedIn can work to improve outreach for the benefit of everyone. If you can meet Kevin in person and have him speak to your group.” John B. -Project Manager at Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc.
“Kevin Knebl at Knebl Communications did an awesome job training us on the use of Linked In for our business. I went in to the training with no idea of how to use the system, and feeling a bit overwhelmed at just the thought. Kevin set us at ease right away. He was very interesting and quite entertaining, and I walked away with the tools I needed and had a great time learning. If you are looking for group training, I would highly recommend Kevin!” Gail P. -Claims Specialist at Benefit Resources, Inc.
“I recently had the opportunity to hear Kevin present on the topic of social networking. Although I was familiar with the applications (LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter), Kevin really provided us with a deeper understanding of the power that these applications hold for businesses. In addition, Kevin is extremely personable and has a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone that wants to become more familiar with the role of social networks in a business or professional environment.” Karen Y. -Director, Administrative Services at El Paso Corporation
