She has a masterful command of the power of digital media and the impact appropriate social influence has on brand, revenue and profit. She has an intuitive way of explaining new concepts in a way you can easily understand and embrace, and a knack for knowing when to push, when to take the lead, and when to back off, based on her client's current work schedule and readiness to embrace the next step. I will definitely hire Christine again, and would highly recommend her for anyone embarking on the wonderful world of social media and influence in business.”
