What people are saying about Jeff Brown’s training?

Natalie Dwyer-Edinger – Sales consultant & team leader at RE/MAX nova.

We were so lucky that RE/MAX nova hired Jeff to instruct their agents on the values of using social media as part of our business. He is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic & very patient with those whose computer knowledge is limited. We have already experienced an increase in sales that we can relate to our social media efforts as a result of Jeff’s courses.”

Mike Arthur – Realtor(R) at Royal LePage.

I had taken a couple social media courses, some 1/2 day and 1 and 2 day courses and even a 10 week intro course. Talking heads regurgitating information but nothing prepared me for the content that Jeff introduced. He truly practices adult learning techniques and his focus is on practical skills and safety vs educating. His dedication to his craft meant after hour online tutorials for me and others. He is committed to results and not just fulfilling a contract based on time and content. If you want a results conscious trainer, you want Jeff for social media.

Dana Sharkey – Executive Director at Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia and Entrepreneur.

I have had the pleasure of spending 12 weeks with an amazing Social Media Guru… I saw a refreshing change in the attitude of all who attended the class, excitement, a true willingness and want to learn more.. The knowledge I have gained has truly impacted my Business in the most positive way, we are growing, increasing daily and more and more people know, who we are!!! I highly recommend Jeff to any company. He is well worth spending our valuable time with and is truly the best in Social Media, dependable, timely, approachable and always brings his knowledge (which is immense) and smile to share with all. Thank you Jeff, for an incredible learning adventure… PS – I cannot wait to refresh and learn more in the future, with Alpha Social Media.” –
