Sandra shifted my perspective on how to use LinkedIn more effectively to connect with others and how to better present who I am and what I do. She also gave me insights into how LinkedIn works “behind the scenes” and how I can leverage that information for better results, things that are probably not obvious to people who, like me, are what you might call “casual” LinkedIn users. In the space of two hours, Sandra coached me through things I could improve, helped me understand why those things matter, and via screen sharing talked me through what to check, click, remove, and modify so that there were visible improvements by the end of our call. Sandra’s style combined curiosity, directness, instruction, fun, and care. I left the call with a list of more actions to take that focus on using the power of LinkedIn, things beyond the cosmetic appearance of one’s profile, to build relationships and get business results I’m seeking.
Dick Hannasch, Leadership Coach
Sandra offers a great service to those needing additional guidance with LinkedIn. When I started working with Sandra my LinkedIn site was up and running, but I had no idea how to use LinkedIn as a business tool to connect with key partners in business, as well as provide services and education to my own client base. In addition, Sandra helped me to highlight key areas of my site that are attracting the network of people I’m seeking to build greater connections with. I highly recommend Sandra’s expertise if you are seeking to reach the next level of connection with your peers, partners in business, and customers.
Julie Brajenovich, Insurance Specialist
If you are like me and are pursuing multiple career paths at the same time getting your story right can be tricky and would definitely recommend the services of Sandra Clark. She’s a pro, and in my case, in just one session was able to unravel and reorganize my experience and bring clarity that I have lacked for a long time. I finally feel I have a profile that truly represents me and will make it easier for my audience to find and get to know me. It’s hard to do this on your own and even harder to find a friend that knows how LinkedIn behaves behind the scenes and what you can do to ensure you get the attention you desire. Best personal investment you can make on yourself.
Andrew Guido, Real Estate Developer
I am getting 70% more visibility on Linkedin since working with Sandra. I have really benefited from her training in advancing my LinkedIn skills, which is my most important marketing tool. She has a “light” and “fun” approach.…I really appreciate the little “tidbits” that she gave me such as a good source of stock photos…With a small time investment, I am pretty sure I will get just the right clients and business that will make me happy and meet my financial goals in 2019.
JoAnne Moody, Adhesives Consultant
Sandra was a HUGE help in perfecting my Linked In profile. My industry is real estate where networking and how you present yourself is critical to your success. I gladly paid Sandra for a few hours of her time to go through every section of Linked In profile so that I could position it a powerfully as possible for my current network and also new connections. I really believe my engagement with new connections has been better than ever because my message is clear and key sections really stand out. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to perfect their Linked In profile.
Sean Spanek, Managing Partner, SportStar Relocation & Real Estate
As a marketing and customer experience strategist, I quickly recognize a talented pro with a combination of experience and intuitive insight. Sandra is not just a highly skilled LinkedIn trainer, but an astute business consultant who improves the quality of both your sandbox and your marbles within the first few hours of working together.
Julie Zirbel, Marketing Strategist Consultant
Sandra shared her wealth of knowledge with networking, wordsmithing, and design on LinkedIn. She helped increased my visibility and within a couple of weeks, I gained a new contract with another to follow a few short weeks after that. My consulting business has been fortuitous as a result. I highly recommend hiring Sandra to move your visibility and business forward!
Sheryl Dickman, Training & Development Consultant
Sandra gets right to the essence of your personality, translating it brilliantly into a profile. With a kind, but firm, inspiration and definitive positioning, you will be amazed at what you achieve together. A bonus value, at least in my case, was the concise explanation of how Linked In is changing, how it works and what it can do if used properly.
David Pape, Business Developer | Serial Entrepreneur
I contacted Sandra with a request to put some order on my LinkedIn profile being unable to decide by myself how to show and position two different professional aspects of mine: my full-time job and my own coaching business. Thanks to her deep professional insights and challenging coaching questions, I looked at my LinkedIn profile in a completely new way. I realized how much I can be in control of what I want to obtain through LinkedIn and of how people will perceive me. It is me who decides how much and what to show! In fact, it is not only the information I put inside that matters but also the order I choose. Chronology of experience is not a constraint anymore. It is all about choosing what I want to put the accent on. Sandra’s continued support in the 2 weeks after the call was extremely useful. While I was editing the profile, she could follow my work and suggest or modify when necessary. It is really incredible how much one can achieve in 2 hours of a call with her, not only in learning more about how to use LinkedIn but also in changing one’s mindset and point of view. I warmly recommend her to anyone who needs support and enlightening with how to operate and get the best out of LinkedIn.
Simeonka Manova PhD, Multilingual International Executive Coach
I sought out Sandra’s expertise while trying to figure out how to organize twenty years’ of consulting projects. Sandra provided sound, practical advice and showed me how to list projects under my consulting firm—by client, rather than chronologically. Now prospective clients can clearly see the companies I’ve worked with and get an idea of what I can do for them. Sandra’s excellent listening skills and easy manner make her a joy to work with. Patti Wood, Training and Implementation Consultant
“Teaching comes naturally to Sandra. It is evident in her coaching for LinkedIn. I knew very little about LinkedIn until my session with Sandra. After two hours of compelling coaching, I feel I can easily manage this platform and stay connected with professionals around the world. She is truly an expert on LinkedIn and methodical in her approach to teaching. Thank you, Sandra, for opening my eyes to new possibilities!
Friley Saucier, Luxury Real Estate Agent
“I worked on my LinkedIn profile with Sandra over a live 2 hour working session. At the end of the session, my LinkedIn profile much improved on several fronts: discoverability, content/positioning, as well as visual appeal. While that by itself was worth my engagement with Sandra, I took away several other insights on how I should be strategizing my job search and using the features of LinkedIn most optimally. I have no hesitation in strongly endorsing Sandra for anyone who is looking to put their best put forward when it comes to their linked in profile/resume, as well as looking for insights into how to go about their job search”
Director, Product Management (Job Seeker)
“I first witnessed Sandra’s incredible knowledge as part of a group meeting where Sandra was a guest presenter. After just five minutes it was clear to everyone in the room that we were privileged to be hearing directly from a person who was an expert on how to best position your LinkedIn profile. I followed up with Sandra after the presentation and she immediately responded and provided me with several days and times to meet. I found our meeting highly productive and not only did I walk away with a clear roadmap of what I needed to accomplish to update my LinkedIn profile but in the process, Sandra showed me a multitude of “tricks” on how to maximize my use of LinkedIn. These “tricks” were in themselves worth the time I spent with Sandra. After my meeting with Sandra I made the suggested changes and she subsequently reviewed my update not once but 4 times until she was satisfied! I have had very positive feedback from the suggestions provided to me by Sandra and highly recommend her to any person looking to maximize their LinkedIn profile”
Bernard Lauper, CEO, MacCorkle Insurance Service
Of the three LinkedIn experts I know, Sandra is head and shoulders above the rest. Sandra keeps it simple, making it easy to apply her sound advice. She pays attention to what WE want to accomplish and is honest about what LI can and cannot do. I very much value her approach to working with bossy consultant-types (moi) who struggle with things like LI profile changes (moi). I also enjoy reading her articles. I highly recommend her services and training.
Shawn A. Greene, Author “I’d Rather Have a Root Canal Than Do Cold Calling!”
“As a digital marketing professional, a majority of my focus is on my clients’ online presence. When it came time to freshen up and improve my own online presence, I hired Sandra to provide me with professional feedback regarding my LinkedIn profile. Not only did Sandra help me create a profile that shines, she also shared many uncommon tips about the platform that have helped me gain an edge. Sandra was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to any business professional, job seeker or recent college grad looking to make their profile stand out and gain more traction. “
Christine Penchuk, Partner, Search Strategy Marketing
“Sandra helped me make my profile more complete and to take advantage of LinkedIn features that I wasn’t even aware of. With her help, I’m now able to share my blog posts with a wider audience and present myself in a more engaging manner. She was efficient, well-informed, and a great instructor.”
Liza Hanks, Attorney, Author and Speaker
As her client, Sandra worked such wonders with my LinkedIn profile that I asked her to speak with Meeting Professionals International Northern California Chapter. I am the co-chair of the Programs and Education Committee and I wanted our members to learn from her wisdom and expertise in our events industry that has been turned upside down in the midst of a pandemic. Many of our members are now finding themselves unemployed and in need of advice about how to stand out, make an impact, and find a new career in an incredibly tough market. Other members are interested in how to “sell” effectively in the new virtual space. She presented a virtual session including applicable tips with confidence and humor. Our members were highly engaged and Sandra received the most questions from the audience of any speaker!! I think she should have her own TV show – she is hilarious!! In a world of ho-hum presenters, Sandra stood out with brilliance!! We are all so very impressed with her knowledge, honesty, and relatability. Thank you, Sandra, for sharing your amazing-ness with our chapter!!
Kim Clary, Director of Business Development and Co-chair Education & Programs Committee, MPINCC

Jeffrey Kuhn, Managing Partner FLG Partners
“Working as an interim CMO for small and medium-sized Silicon Valley companies, I was looking for ways to promote awareness of MarketSavvy and my services, and highlight my 15th anniversary in business. Since my past clients refer me to future clients, leveraging LinkedIn is key. Sandra has been instrumental in advancing my LinkedIn skills and knowledge.”
Theresa Marcroft, CMO/VP Mktg Consultant
Sandra is a practical and expert advisor/coach on all things LinkedIn. A pleasure to work with, Sandra was terrific in tailoring her extensive knowledge to help me take specific steps to increase the value I get from my LinkedIn activities. She’s really committed to her clients’ success and ready to go above and beyond when necessary. I recommend her to anyone who’s looking to maximize the value they’re getting from their LinkedIn activities.
Andrew Green, Growth Strategy | Strategy Execution
“Sandra mentored me on how to revise my LinkedIn page as I transitioned from a full-time employee to an independent consultant. Her coaching was invaluable in that she showed me how to position myself & describe my skill sets. She was flexible, accommodating & was a joy to work with. When I am ready to take my page to the next level, I will contact Sandra again!”
Kathy Lewis, Consultant and Trainer to Medical Device companies
Engaging, clear, informative, practical, valuable and actionable take-aways are what you get from attending Sandra’s presentations. And, she delivers all this in a way that is both light-hearted and deeply substantive. Sandra was a guest presenter in my group coaching program, Passion, Purpose, Paycheck. I and the members of my program gained up-to-the-minute, insider tips on how to use the power of LinkedIn to create meaningful connections and open doors to meet potential employers and business associates that can lead to a new job or supportive partnerships for your project or business. Sandra Clark is the go-to expert on using LinkedIn effectively and she’s a great speaker/trainer/teacher who really delivers the goods. Thank you, Sandra!
Patrice Perillo, Career Transition Expert
“Sandra has tremendous expertise in creating effective LinkedIn profiles. In a relatively short period of time she was able to guide me through a transformation of mine that made me better stand apart from others, convey a stronger story, and organize it in a way that was much easier for someone to read. Some of the suggestions were obvious but I couldn’t see them before. Others were like a lightbulb going off because of how much sense they made. I finally felt proud of my profile when we were done. If LinkedIn is important to you, I highly recommend Sandra’s expertise to help you get your presence to another level.”
Chris Taylor, VP Marketing
“Sandra is very personable, flexible, thoughtful and thorough with her feedback. She took the time to learn more about my background asking provocative questions to ensure I was articulating my Linked In profile well. Sandra explained and provided guidance on how to best use Linked In. I recommend her highly.”
Diana Adachi, Global Payments Industry Executive
“As a training and development professional, I found working with Sandra to be easy and productive. Her passion for LinkedIn and the opportunities it provides is genuine. In addition to recommending changes to improve my profile, she emphasized the importance of ongoing engagement on LinkedIn to maximize results. I’m now using LinkedIn daily to share information and to endorse and recommend colleagues. I am seeing increased views of my profile as a result. I recommend Sandra to anyone who wants to make an impact with LinkedIn.”
Sara Benson, Senior Training Manager
“Sandra is an approachable, personable, results-oriented coach and trainer. Her training class was excellent and inspired me to hire her for LinkedIn coaching.

I highly recommend Sandra as a trainer and coach!”
JoAnn Luich, Project Analyst
“I highly recommend Sandra for her expertise on LinkedIn, and specifically for her knowledge and advice in profile building. She has great practical knowledge and knows the finer points of the LinkedIn technology. She is very responsive and a pleasure to work with.”
Randall Burrows, Business Consultant | Attorney
“Sandra is a master of both the art and the science of creating effective LinkedIn profiles and using them to best advantage. Whatever your age and comfort level with LinkedIn, she has an uncanny ability start with where you are, understand what you want LinkedIn to do for you, and bring you to where her extensive experience tells her you need to be. And if I’m any example, she makes the process far more enjoyable than it has any right to be! To get the most out of your time with her, use her initial consultation to get a sense of what she thinks you need to do to reach your LinkedIn goals and then do your homework prior to your working session.”
Neil Lieberman, Chief Marketing Officer
“I needed to update my LinkedIn profile, and turned to Sandra to help me. I do quite a bit of marketing, but when it came to myself, I just could not see what I needed to do. Sandra helped me focus on what is important to me, and in just one online session, I had the major updates in place. In followup sessions, Sandra helped me refine the details. I knew the right things to do, but it was so much easier with Sandra’s expert guidance. Sandra really does know what you need to focus on – even without implementing everything she suggested, my profile views are 35% higher in just two weeks.”
Geri Schneider Winters, CTO
“Sandra is an excellent resource when it came to LinkedIn Coaching. She personally helped me and my CFO with some great tips. We liked her so much that we brought her in to teach a class of 25 other Leaders in our company. Thanks so much Sandra for your guidance and inspiration!”
Kevin Soohoo, Head of Growth at DADO
“Sandra is singularly responsible for a major boost in my career. She provided not only training but wise professional advice.

Will Dailey, IT executive
“Sandra provided me with step-by-step training on improving my LinkedIn profile to make me more findable by employers and to emphasize my skills and capabilities. She is deeply knowledgeable about what works, knows the ins and outs of LinkedIn, and even followed up to make sure I was showing up in the search results that mattered to me and to offer more suggestions. Thanks to Sandra’s advice, I was found by a potential employer within two months and landed a great new position!”
Jan Oldenburg, Healthcare executive
“My firm Pacific Consulting Group hired Sandra to train our staff on making the most out of LinkedIn both for individual networking and firm marketing. She was super organized, explained the mechanics in concrete ways, and communicated the benefits in a way that did in fact persuade many of our employees to take action. Her follow up was excellent. Sandra has the traits you would want in a corporate trainer – she listens carefully to the client’s needs and designs a thoughtful and well-paced session, while being attentive to the unique culture and styles.”
Yvonne Nomizu, Consulting company executive
“Before my one-on-one session with Sandra, I had no idea how powerful LinkedIn can be, and also how much control I can have over what the world does or doesn’t see. She coached me through thinking about how to present myself, and the tools in LinkedIn to do this. What makes Sandra such an effective coach is her passion for learning about how to leverage LinkedIn, and her compassionate and effective teaching style.”
Wako Takayama, User Research consultant
“Sandra is a very generous, insightful, patient, and exceptional trainer. She’s detail-oriented, and explains concepts clearly and in a thoughtful manner to her pupil. She is a jewel and wonderful to work with. She came up with great suggestions to reposition myself on my profile.”
Shannon McElyea, Startup business development consultant
“Sandra looked at my LinkedIn profile and helped me see that I needed to decide what I wanted to do. I needed to pick something and then make LinkedIn and other messaging clean and clear about myself. Well, that’s exactly what I did. I followed Sandra’s advice and decided to go back and sell again. I just received an offer from Oracle to be an account executive on a large, enterprise account—and I am excited!”
Cathy Fitzgerald, Account Executive, Oracle
“I would highly recommend Sandra Clark to anyone seeking to optimize their LinkedIn profile for networking or job searching. With her good humor and sincere approach, she shows you how to use the many features to showcase your best assets as well as customize the tools to enhance your network. Sandra gives smart advice.
