Found Christian via a Google search seeking assistance with a Facebook profile to page conversion. He replied to my request with info on how to easily set up an appointment to solve my issue. In 24 hours, I was able to **speak** with Christian who walked me through the issue and provide guidance. I would definitely use his services again.

I've worked with Christian for the last two years in his role as Social Business Manager for the IBM mobile channel. If there's a social media tool or blogging best practice that Christian doesn't know about, I'd be surprised! He has helped myself and dozens of IBMers working on our program, sharing best practices on social engagement, blog structure, SEO, and just about anything related to building digital eminence. He's truly an expert in his field.

I had the pleasure of working with Christian on a number of occasions over the past few years in my role as social content editor for IBM. I saw Christian give great presentations about social media and blogging to groups of people that were just learning how to use these services, and I was always impressed by the knowledge and care Christian put into his interactions with each individual. If someone had a question, he was quick to personally walk the person through their struggles and find a solution. Overall, he always did a fantastic job of sharing his knowledge and promoting authors, technologies, and brands.

Christian is great at explaining things and taking on a teaching role, as well. I personally learned a lot about search engine optimization from a presentation and one-on-one call he did with me, which was a great boon to my role as editor. I would highly recommend Christian to anyone looking for a dedicated, intelligent social business expert.

Christian consistently amazes me at everything he is able to accomplish. He is a very hard-working professional whose dedication and pursuit of excellence inspires those around him to do and learn more.

He has mastered the complex world of online marketing with special expertise in social media - particularly within the retail context. His dedication can be seen in his relentless efforts to always remain current in an industry that constantly shifts and changes. He has a well-rounded foundation in both the soft skills of sales/marketing and the hard skills of web technology. This combination is unique and has been the key to success and quick implementation on several key projects.

Beyond his vast knowledge and proven experience, personally it has been a pleasure to collaborate with Christian on many projects. He is a true team player and displays confidence in others. He is a valuable component to the success (seen and unseen) at MA.

Christian has the unique ability to not only be creative, but to also stay on task and successfully hit deadlines. We hit some roadblocks (unexpected by all) on the last project we worked on together and Christian successfully researched the issues, solve the problems and kept the ball rolling. He's a strong asset for any team.
