We met once, I attended one of your workshops at JMSB and it was about how to create a powerful LinkedIn profile 🙂 it was very useful for a new migrant who was trying to re-start her career while re-starting her life from zero, and finally succeeded.
Shelly worked with me as a Social Media Strategist for my new business, 1769 Distillery, helping to set up the company LinkedIn page and develop social media marketing strategy. She is easy to work with, upbeat, positive and provides clients with a lot of current and relevant material. I highly recommend Shelly as a social media strategist for both individual and corporate needs.
Shelly quickly and clearly showed me how I wasn’t nearly maximizing the power of LinkedIn’s software, algorithms, etc. She provided precise instructions as to how I could improve my personal profile, my (previously non-existent) company profile, and my actual networking strategies. You simply cannot go wrong with Shelly – she will make your LinkedIn presence stronger, guaranteed!
Working with Shelly was mind blowing. I was very impressed with how quickly she was able to target my exact needs and give me step by step strategy on how to create an impactful profile that speaks directly to my ideal clientele as well as connect with the key influencers in my field. She offers phenomenal insight and is 110% commitment to the success of her clients. Shelly is a star… a must hire!
Shelly has done several workshops for YES to help our clients increase their knowledge and use of this important networking tool. She takes her time to connect with participants throughout the session to ensure an in depth understanding, and provides hands on tips and tools for all levels of LinkedIn users!
Professional, funny and warm- Shelly is our go to person for helping our clients “Connect for Real”!
She is dedicated in helping others succeed, in fact, it one of her passions. Shelly has coached many students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. She has led a number of valuable and progressive group training workshops including a Leveraging LinkedIn Workshop for our EMBA program. Shelly’s approach is open and interactive. Working with others and equipping them with the skill sets and knowledge to grow to greater heights is her motivation. She is disciplined, driven, honest and always cheerful and I highly recommend her!
I am honored to write this recommendation for Shelly Elsliger. As the lead for the LinkedIn Student Learning Ambassador program, I worked closely with Shelly to build the program and found myself in awe of her dedication, knowledge, innovation and leadership.
Working as the “LinkedIn Learning Liaison” for the University of Toronto, Rotman Commerce, Shelly had vision to see the benefits of a program which enabled students to engage in an experiential learning opportunity in partnership with LinkedIn. Shelly took that vision and she added her passion for LinkedIn and turned it into measurable results for the University of Toronto and the students involved in the program.
Working far beyond the call of duty, Shelly mentored students in the program to develop skills, build their expertise in learning software and create opportunities across campus to actively bring awareness around the value of LinkedIn and LinkedIn Learning. Her students far exceeded the requirements of the program and were in the top 10% of those who completed the program. Shelly began with only three students in the first phase of the program but managed to recruit 10x more in the second phase.
Shelly’s deep experience with LinkedIn, career services, her life-long learner perspective coupled with being a fierce goal-oriented strategist cannot be overestimated. Shelly is a master of LinkedIn and knows our software inside. In all of her presentations, workshops and mentoring throughout the program Shelly explains our products clearly and possesses incredible instincts for identifying and pursuing opportunities to bring the value of our products to students, her peers and the public at large. Most importantly, however, is that fact that Shelly leads by example and our team here at LinkedIn have found her enthusiasm and dedication both inspiring and motivating. Shelly truly makes the impossible possible. She is an extraordinary individual and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her and look forward to counting to build our partnership in the future.
