“Loudoun County is highly-competitive and fast-faced. If you’re doing business here, you are networking among the strongest, most intelligent and passionate professionals our Nation has to offer. Yet, we are also your peers, your neighbors, your friends and your customers. Geoff Crawley never lets me lose sight of who I am and what’s important; in life, in business, in networking. Business Associate and sincere friend, Geoff is not only an exceptional human being, he’s hysterically funny, terribly well connected, and a Ninja for certain.”
Geoff with Your Networking Ninja is a rare talent that you may not come across often. I have had the pleasure of working with Geoff on a series of networking projects. Recently, Geoff assisted me with a keynote presentation to a group of business professionals. I’ve given keynote presentations previously; however, I felt my content was stale and outdated. I sat down with Geoff and in just a few short meetings, he already had me thinking in a completely different path. His unique perspective not only assisted me in a very successful keynote, but he was able to help me understand more about myself and my business. I highly recommend Geoff for any type of networking assistance. His experiences can help guide you through the networking world.
Recently, I needed help with my elevator speech.
I wanted to make sure that the message I conveyed to every business contact I was in front of was clear, concise and appealing to my target market. Geoff helped me narrow my message and choose the wording that would attract attention while still being appealing and professional. He accomplished this in a non-critical, professional manner that made what previously had seemed extremely stressful for me to something that when complete, felt like a piece of cake!
Now I feel like a MASTER – he definitely helped me assassinate the awkward. And the best part is that I saw immediate results and response! Thank you, Geoff – you really are a Networking Ninja!
Geoff is a first class networking coach. He not only has networking know-how, he has the experience of growing businesses from small, struggling companies to local household names. Geoff started Networking Ninja because he is truly passionate about helping people and building them up. He genuinely cares about his clients and will go out of his way to help them succeed. He does everything from walking them through events, to how to handle follow ups after the events, and beyond. For me, he helped me pull together a presentation I was giving to a large group. I had several ideas, but wasn't sure how to make them flow. He not only coached me on the content, he helped with my PowerPoint, and we even reviewed my delivery. The feedback was that it was the best presentation yet! Geoff is a true leader and mentor, even for the "old pros."
