I co-presented a national training program with Kathi on automotive online reputation management. Kathi brings passion, insights and deep experience to her programs. She relates helpful and entertaining examples, ties into the audience’s goals and needs, and gives participants a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing them in the online space. I’d love to work with Kathi again very soon!”
Personal Branding Expert for Executives and Veterans
I first met Kathi at Digital Dealer 17 when I wandered into her seminar about Social Selling. I was immediately blown away by the huge revenue potential of something I had previously thought was “just for kids”. Since then, Kathi has provided great advice while I expand the social media presence of dealerships I work with. Kathi’s book and weekly articles are must-reads for anyone who wants to be on the cutting edge of our industry and stay relevant in the long term.”

There are some #CarPeople I followed online for a long time and when I finally got to meet them they were NOT what they had “branded” themselves as. I remember feeling so excited to meet a few of them, almost like I was a little star struck, only to receive a weak handshake with a very unwelcoming hello.
Then there was Kathi, who has branded herself as a Car Gal, who will put her arm around you and help you reach your full potential. She shows her love for animals and helping people. When I finally met her, her greeting was warm and welcoming… just like she has branded herself.
Marketing yourself so that people know who you are when your name is mentioned and recognize your face when they see you, is just marketing… but who you really are is your brand.
Kathi is the person you want in your corner.
