Oliver gave an exceptional presentation to our members on how to use LinkedIn for business purposes. They all want a part II

Santiago Marquez, VP and CFO Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

Oliver served as a consultant/speaker in a seminar involving 'Innovative Marketing Strategies'. I found Oliver's expertise and knowledge of the material extremely noteworthy. I was thoroughly convinced of his professional competency in the subject matter. His ability to meet the attendees at their levels of knowledge was uncanny. All of my concerns regarding utilizing marketing strategies and government contracting were completely evaporated at the conclusion of his presentation. I left the presentation feeling confident in my ability to execute the processes outlined in his presentation.

I would highly recommend Oliver to anyone who is seeking to become more knowledgeable in the areas of government contracting and marketing strategies. I look forward to more opportunities to glean from his experience and expertise.

Cynthia Brown, MBA, RHIT, CCS, Owner CyntCoding Health Information Services

Oliver has proven himself as an expert on the subject of enhancing your online presence through LinkedIn. His innovative ideas and suggestions were well received by the audience of 70+ members of the West Cobb Business Association. Oliver's delivery of the material was concise and comprehensible to the average LinkedIn user. I highly recommend that Oliver be hired to share his knowledge with any group that has a need for using LinkedIn to its fullest potential.

Krystine Torella, President West Cobb Business Association

I've known Oliver for over 2 years and he never fails to provide valuable insights. Recently, I had the pleasure of attending his 'Making Money with LinkedIn' clinic. Not only was I pleased with his strategic approach to leveraging LinkedIn to generate revenue, I was impressed with the thoroughness of his presentation. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with him this year and have invited him to be a LinkedIn trainer for the Metro Business Academy, a subsidiary of our company.

Dahlys Hamilton, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Metro Atlanta Business Network

Oliver has spoken to the ABWA Douglas County Chapter twice – both times receiving rave reviews. His first presentation was regarding the opportunities for women business owners in Government Contracting. His most recent presentation was about growing your business with LinkedIn. The audience ranged from non-users to high level users and he managed to be able to speak effectively to each group. I highly recommend him as a dynamic and professional speaker for your organization.

Rita Wilson Harris, Director of Human Resources GreenbergFarrow

Recently we had the honor of having Mr. Oliver Yarbrough conduct a lunch and learn seminar to our student body here at Georgia Gwinnett College. His dynamic delivery and very timely subject matter centered on the importance of increasing 'brand recognition'. Our audience was truly treated to a very polished, memorable and professionally done presentation. Mr. Yarbrough is extremely knowledgeable and was an absolute joy to work with. Beyond any doubt, he most certainly has the expertise and capacity to serve as an exceptionally valuable consulting resource for any organization. Thank you again Mr. Yarbrough!

Dennis Lindsay, Career Development and Advising Georgia Gwinnett College

Oliver's knowledge and experience in business development are exceptional. I've found his presentations informative and his delivery engaging. I look forward to expanding my business with the Chief Rainmaker.

Triphenya Bailey, President Positive Press Consulting

I am the president at the American Business Women's Association – Douglas County Chapter; we've invited Oliver to present to our members about Woman Small Business and Government Contract last week. Oliver not only made the delivery of his presentation easy to understand on this complex topic, but he was also able to relate it back to our members. It was an eye opening and resourceful presentation; I will certainly recommend Oliver for anyone who is interested to have someone who is not only professional but also knowledgeable about Government Contracts.

Candy Yu, President American Business Women's Association

Oliver provided our group with a lively, well thought out presentation. Entertaining, and engaging. I would recommend him as a speaker anytime.

Kathy Conrad, GC Reporter McGraw-Hill Construction

Oliver moderated at our Alliance South event in Atlanta on April 6, 2011. He was a great presenter in the sense that he was engaging, tied in a great government contracting theme, kept the morning on a good flow, and related well with the conference attendees. I'm glad I invited him to liven up the event!
