“I had the pleasure to meet Frank recently at a Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce event. Frank was a speaker at one of the Business Matters Seminar Series delivered to the local business community. Frank’s presentation on Social Media was very well organized & informative. Frank is an inspirational speaker who knows how to connect to the audience. I highly recommend Frank to any organization that is looking for an enthusiastic and passionate speaker who knows Social Media inside out.”
-- Svetla Tzekov, Branch Manager, AVP, Sterling Savings Bank

“Best session of the conference. Good job Frank!”
-- Feedback from the 2010 Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.) conference – from http://www.facebook.com/mark.sturdevant"

When some of our business members asked to learn more about “social networking,” I immediately thought of Frank Kenny. He has walked us “old time chamber guys” through the new and very unknown world of cutting edge business communications through his seminars in conjunction with the WCCE. Neither I nor my members were disappointed. Frank’s seminars covered a lot of basic ground, but certainly lifted the fog from around a subject that can, at times, be very difficult to understand. I highly recommend Frank for his knowledge and his presentation manner – both of which will shout “Value!” to your business members.
-- Rick Winsman President/CEO Kelso Longview (WA) Chamber of Commerce

“Frank provides highly innovative and energized presentations that are packed with valuable information for anyone looking to enter or expand their reach within the new media arena. He provides information that attendees can use immediately to build their presence on the web. Frank is well regarded and viewed as an expert when it comes to new media and small business opportunities,”
-- Renee Radcliff Sinclair, Executive Director, Congressional & Public Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

“Over the several years I've worked with Frank, I have been impressed with his creativity, innovation, and unparalleled zeal and joy for helping people achieve their objectives. A social media evangelist, a champion for small businesses and chambers of commerce, and a natural entrepreneur, Frank Kenny gets the job done.” August 12, 2010
-- Richard S. Davis, VP Communications, Association of Washington Business

Enjoyed the W.A.C.E. webinar very much Frank.
-- Valerie K. Boyle - Chamber President/CEO

“I have been in attendance at many of Frank Kenny's seminars and presentations and he presents his expertise clearly and in a way that is very easy to understand. His presentations are well prepared and follow a clear course of study. Frank is very knowledgeable in the area of Social Media Networking and his passion for the material is infectious! I wish him well on his tour of all 50 States.”
-- Fay Marley-Clarke, Photographer

I brought Frank in to teach a seminar on Effective Use of Social Media for the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce. I had heard him speak in Yakima at a statewide Chamber execs function and found him to be one of the most knowledgeable people around on using social media for organizational communication. For this reason I recommended him as a main speaker at the 2010 Northwest Chamber Leaders Conference in Coeur d'Alene. Since he was in the area, I planned a workshop/seminar where our members could learn about how to use Social media to promote their businesses.
-- Eldonna Shaw President & CEO Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce

“Frank is the go-to person for understanding and unleashing the power of social networking. Frank has been a speaker at our association meetings, and has the knowledge, talent and insight to help you understand and utilize social networking in your business or personal life.”
-- Art Castle, Executive Vice President, Home Builders Association of Kitsap County

Frank, I have been meaning to tell you how your “Talk” at the Issaquah Chamber has changed my world.
-- Lynda Bilo, Issaquah Chamber
