Do you want find out what social selling could add to your business?



Franziska delivered a social selling workshop at the global GG headquarters in Vienna, Austria attended by a diverse team of experts from HR, Marketing and Sales. Franziska was able to excite our team and leave us feeling motivated and energized to invest our time in Social Selling. She explained how new techniques will help us attract the right talent, attain quota, drive pipeline and speed up sales cycles even for an engineering company in a very traditional automotive industry. I'd recommend Franziska as a great coach for any organization interested in new ways of doing business. Get ready for a fully immersive hands-on experience!

Head of Global Talent Acquisition, Gebauer & Griller

Obwohl unser Team bei Beginn des Social Media Workshops unterschiedlichste Erfahrungen und Wissensstände hatte, hat es Franziska mühelos geschafft, jeden einzelnen Teilnehmer dort abzuholen, wo er gerade stand. Dadurch war sowohl eine stetige Lernkurve sowie Motivation für alle gegeben. Viele Praxisbeispiele, Ideen und Anregungen haben einen dynamischen Prozess gestartet und mittlerweile bekomme ich fast jeden Tag ein Mail mit „Wie hoch ist Dein SSI heute?“....Challenge accepted!

Recently I participated in a Social Selling Session for Microsoft in which Franziska was the presenter/coach. I definitely enjoyed this invaluable and meaningful engagement with her. The guidance Franziska provided has opened my mind to the vast things that can be achieved with LinkedIn, and will take my profile to greater heights of effectiveness. Franziska was more than willing to assist me even after the session was completed, and it doing so has helped further strengthen my Linkedin profile.

I truly appreciate the time she spent going above and beyond to help transform my profile and make it relevant to dynamic and ever changing business environment of today.

THANK YOU, Franziska!.

For me - trying to create and maintain a digital / social presence seemed like a rather daunting task. After participating in a Social Selling Session conducted by Franziska - it was a truly eye-opening and insightful discussion on the impact of what Social Selling can accomplish in this digital age. While I'm in the process of honing my personal brand and implementing the recommendations she provided - the information and guidance will greatly assist me in achieving this now - not so daunting task. I look forward to receiving further input and advice, as well as having future discussions with Franziska on continuing to hone and refine my profile to convey information, insights, and interests with both current connections and potential new ones through my social presence on LinkedIn. Thanks Franziska for your time, patience and invaluable insight!
