Bio for Kate Paine

Kate helps executives and entrepreneurs stand out online so they become a recognized authority in their marketplace, and a respected asset to their company and clients.

She uses her journalism and marketing skills to tease out her clients’ compelling story and position themselves as an expert or thought leader both online and off.

Discovering an individual's story makes her expertise uncommon in the world of online personal promotion. She’s a LinkedIn expert and uses the tool as a powerful personal branding platform. Kate also speaks at national marketing conferences about personal branding strategies and social media, and teaches LinkedIn for corporate sales training.

Kate is also a volunteer traveling faculty member – teaching how to leverage LinkedIn – for The Honor Foundation (honor.org) in Virginia Beach and Wilmington, NC. THF is a nonprofit, which provides an intense career development program for Navy SEALs and individuals in the Special Operations Forces community who are transitioning from their active duty military service and into their civilian career.

Steve Schleupner,
Men's Life Coach

I attended Kate's LinkedIn workshop, and learned many insider techniques to expand my SEO results, identify ways to track outreach stats, use the profile to tell my story, and easily create videos to communicate my message. I feel much more confident, and able to strategically use the platform. Kate is a true pro, her seminar was well put together, and she covered a lot of content without losing her audiences' attention.

Rich Brooks, CEO, Flyte New Media & Agents of Change Digital Marketing Conference

I've invited Kate to two AOC conferences in 2018 and 2019, and recently had her be our closing speaker for our Agents of Change Whistlestop Tour. Her topic was, "Make Your Mark: How Your Personal Brand Sets You Apart Online and Off," and she killed it. Her presentation was filled with great, actionable tips that worked for beginners and experts alike.
She's warm, funny, and knowledgeable, and it's easy to see why so many people turn to Kate for advice. If you're looking for someone to speak on personal branding, standing out online, or LinkedIn, I wholeheartedly recommend Kate!

Ginger Johnson, Connectivity Expert & Author

Kate's program entirely shifted my thinking, activities and perspective - all of which have sky rocketed my engagement. Why? Because now I understand a lot more; I have a lot more fun in the doings of LinkedIn; now I see real movement and progress in utilizing this platform to serve and to grow. For those serious on getting smart about LinkedIn, I unhesitatingly recommend Kate. She's sharp, fun, and knows her specialty.

Jenn Herman, Instagram Expert, Author, International Speaker

Kate is one of my favorite people to learn from when it comes to LinkedIn strategies. I love her approach to storytelling and personal connections on the platform. I've had the pleasure of sitting in on a couple of Kate's training presentations and each time I've found myself updating my profile right then and there to take advantage of her tips. She's articulate, fun, and engaging as a speaker. She makes the content relatable and actionable. I highly recommend inviting Kate to speak at your training event if you need a powerhouse LinkedIn session.
