Who is this for?
You are just launching your business and/or navigating your way through the early days of business development and putting down foundations.
You sell your time and knowledge as a coach, trainer or consultant and want to create a predictable business with a clear sales funnel.
For you, there is no time other than ‘right now’ to make a success of your business. You have 2+ days per week to dedicate to your business.
With extensive experience in sales, marketing and personal branding, Naomi works with companies to translate their brand message into engaging and professional LinkedIn profiles, written in the first person, that create the ‘know, like, and trust’ factor needed to facilitate introductions and bring in sales.
Having reviewed hundreds of LinkedIn profiles as the Head Training Consultant for one of the world’s leading LinkedIn training companies, Naomi knows first-hand how most people’s profiles are doing little to build their personal brand.
Naomi ran the Rock Your Profile stand at LinkedIn’s annual conference Talent Connect in 2013 & 2014 and provided strategic consultation to many of the world’s leading organisations. She has written profiles individuals at Oracle, Canon, Asda, Coca-Cola and Facebook. Her passion lines in helping individuals establish their personal brand and fulfil their dreams.
Beginning her career working for several corporates, Naomi has achieved a business degree, obtained CIPD qualifications, and run several companies. She continually invests in her learning, namely, Daniel Priestley’s ‘Key Person of Influence’ whose principles shape the LinkedIn strategies she provides her clients.
What Our Clients Say
Getting started with Naomi immediately provided me the insights and momentum I needed to commit to making my business work. Her structured approach and online training provides a vital framework for our journey together, and each session provides the personal approach and flexibility I need, so I know I am supported on my unique journey.
Within two weeks of my first session with Naomi I was already creating results. I began attracting opportunities to pitch to new clients and invitations to share my message with key groups. The sales scripts Naomi has provided me help put a framework around conversations and ensure, no matter how long the meeting, I always achieve my intended outcome. Sessions are always thought-provoking and push me to think beyond my expectations.

Lifetime Access: LinkedIn Business Strategy Course
Learning through coaching is great but often you just need a reference point to allow you to revise what you heard during your session in your own time. With access to our Strategy Course you’ll be able to review the content and download worksheets to help cement your learning and keep you moving forward.

Lifetime Access: Client Area

Between sessions you are welcome to call for extra support. We know that challenges won’t always wait until your next coaching session, so we welcome you to call should you need a quick pep talk, help preparing for a sales meeting, feedback on a brochure, email etc. or simply a ‘sounding board’ when making a decision.
