She spoke to the importance of integrating social media throughout your organization and emphasized the 3 "D's" of marketing; direct, digital and dynamic. Her presentation rated in the top 5 of the 16 speakers who presented at CONVERGE Chicago.

Barbara Rozgonyi spoke on 8/24 at The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago

Barbarba Rozgonyi and I met over the phone. She was warm, helpful, and amazingly insightful. When I requested she come on campus for a Success Seminar to contribute her expertise to our students, she agreed. During the 3 months of planning the Success Seminar, she consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more, and I heartily endorse her as an amazing speaker, business partner and professional in the marketing and social media industry.

Barbara is reliable, dedicated and intelligent. Her ability to engage a group of young students in understanding the need for social media to a point of action is impressive. I am so grateful she agreed to attend our Success Seminar and speak as a mentor to students in our marketing program. She consistently proves herself as an sincere, truly helpful, and long-term thinker.

Of particular value to me as a Career Advisor is Barbara’s team-player mind-set and unwavering commitment to encourage young marketers to engage with other social media marketing professionals. She cares about her industry and creating a community of ethical, thorough, and thoughtful marketers who can make an impact.

Organized and attentive, Barbara has quickly become more than just an on-campus speaker because she is regularly inviting me and my students to professional events offered through her Social Media Club, a professional organziation dedicated to creating a community of social media marketers. I’m always impressed with her ability to follow up and stay organized with an industry that is, by nature, multi-faceted and non-linear.

Barbara is a hardworking, top-performing marketing professional with an amazing ability to communicate her skills and interests to a large audience. She has my highest recommendation, and I am happy to furnish more details if you would like additional information.
