"I've worked with Brad both in his earlier capacity as Executive Director of a Non-Profit foundation, and in his current position, having him help me to make sense of the Social Media universe for professional purposes. Brad has consistently shown himself to be an individual of the highest professional competence in all areas in which he chooses to work. In his current position, he has helped me immensely, and continues to do so. I cannot recommend Brad highly enough in this regard: His understanding of this leading edge medium, from a professional standpoint, is outstanding. In addition to being very accountable from the standpoint of his production of promised material, the quality of the output is right on the mark. He has a real feel for how this medium works, how to communicate within it, and how to utilize it for maximum potential.

"Hi Brad, you spoke at the law school at DU this fall and motivated me to make my LinkedIn profile. I appreciated your PowerPoint presentation and all of your advice! Your presentation included valuable information about how to make my profile unique and marketable to potential employers. Thanks also for connecting with me on LinkedIn!"
- Joanne Morando, DU Law Student
"I engaged Brad for a one-on-one coaching session about Twitter. He was knowledgeable, patient and thorough as I took in the information and worked to apply it to my circumstances. Brad was very receptive and responsive when I had follow up questions. Frankly, I took a leap of faith since I had never worked with Brad nor did I have a personal reference on his work. I could just tell from his posts in our social media discussion group that he would be helpful and happily, I was right."
- Diana Mines Nielander, Co-Founder, High-Impact Consulting
"When I first started with Linkedin, I put the very basic information up on my profile. I didnít really know what I was doing and I didnít really know about any advantage that Linkedin could provide to me. Brad Friedman and The Friedman Group, LLC sat down with me and explained how I could use my Linkedin account to connect to the right people and get to my end goal of finding a new career, a lot faster. He explained how getting involved in groups and connecting to people I know, would make my profile more visible and broadens my chances of my success. Brad took my very dull, boring profile and made it into a very appealing, attention-grabbing profile. In a job market like today, you need every bit of expertise to set you apart from the competition. My little bit of expertise is Brad and The Friedman Group, LLC. With his help I now have a cutting edge against my competition."
- Gena Beagle, Manager, Jewish Community Foundation
The Friedman Group, LLC helped us launch our presence on LinkedIn. Specifically, Brad helped us to develop complete and professional profiles for each of our brokers, build our network of links to other people, identify and join appropriate groups and taught us how to commence a dialogue on LinkedIn. Brad did all of this work with the highest degree of professionalism. Without Brad’s help, we never would have been able to get this project off the ground.
- Douglas S. Antonoff, President, Antonoff & Co. Brokerage, Inc.
"In these stressful times of doing business, it is always a pleasure to hire a consultant that not only adds value to your bottom line but does it with a smile and a chuckle. Brad Friedman brought that perspective to the brokers in my company for which I am very thankful. He taught us the importance of examining our strengths, weaknesses, skills, and agility inside and outside the company and how we fit or should fit into our particular business niche on the Internet. I highly recommend The Friedman Group to any company that wants to enhance their employees’ status within the community in which they live, as well as the LinkedIn community. He has helped my brokers become better in touch with other professionals tangential to our business and increased their awareness of how important the phrase “It is not what you know, but who you know!” I'd recommend you let The Friedman Group help you enhance your presence on LinkedIn and build a strong referral base for you and your company."
