A great teacher, team mate, strategist... I have had occasion to work closely with Kemp on a number of accounts recently and he does an outstanding job of identifying the clients needs and finding a solution. Kemp has a uncommon customer first approach.
Clients really appreciate his level of knowledge and passion for Social Media, and it shines through in his talks and presentations. His knowledge of HootSuite is unparalleled and he often knows as much about the competition as they do.
I continue to learn technical and practical lessons from Kemp.
Kemp is a very dedicated and tremendously passionate trainer. No matter who he is engaging with, he continues to represent our company with a high level of professionalism, charisma, and commitment.
He serves as not only a great resource for our external clients, but also as a common mentor internally. He also has a knack for early adoption of all things social;)
kemp has been a great help and wealth of information with his social media experience and insight.
When the opportunity arose to host a major social media event in Vancouver (The Now Revolution Book tour with Author Jay Baer), the first person I considered teaming up with was Kemp. Over the past couple of years I have had the good fortune of enjoying engaging debates and ideas and strategies in groups we share and have come to regard Kemp as one of the leading digital strategists in this market.
At our highly successful Presentation, Kemp acted as our moderator with thoughtful questions for our panel as well as offering his highly intelligent perspective and strategy suggestions. Our guest Jay Baer (Professional Speaker/Consultant and now Author) was completely enamoured with Kemp's performance (as was I). Kemp is highly skilled in developing social media/ digital strategy for all levels of business and I would highly recommend him.
Kemp was a great instructor at BCIT. He really helped me understand the value in social media on both a personal and business level. I have now become an active member of Twitter & LinkedIn, despite being strongly against to having a Twitter account before the course started. I believe that is a testiment to his knowledge and persuasive ability. I will be able to take what he has taught me throughout my career. I also enjoyed the fact he brought in numerous guest speakers from the industry to give the class an insight. In conclusion his class really was full of valuable information and I would recommend him as an instructor for the field of Social Media anytime.
Kemp Edmonds taught me in the social media class from the new media program at BCIT. Other than his vast knowledge in the social media field, Kemp also brought his optimism and energy to every class. He went above and beyond to invite speakers from the new media industry to give presentations in the classroom; thereby, expanding the perspectives of the students and letting us know the current status of the industry.
Kemp is a vital member of the BCIT team, seemingly overnight, launching the institute into the 21st century with regard to its social media presence. He's been a key resource to me and a go-to resource for all things current in the social media sphere.
Whether he's leading a seminar or flipping burgers at the staff BBQ, Kemp's enthusiasm is infectious. He is a true team player and is knowledge, which seemingly updates by the minute, would be an asset to any group.
Kemp really is an expert when it comes to Social Media! I asked him to help me with YouTube and suddenly I had a whole list of ideas for Twitter, Facebook and blogging. He really listens to client concerns and then presents clear, tangible ideas that can easily be executed. I would highly recommend Kemp for social media strategy and campaign execution.
Kemp was the answer to my social media and marketing prayers... In the two hours he spent with me, I was finally introduced to the tools I need to build my organizations profile and connectivity with our partners! I left our session inspired, informed and ready to roll!
Kemp is an outstanding businessman who has a keen ability to relate to whomever he's dealing with. He is goal driven and does not shy away from a challenge (or a challenger). It was a pleasure working side by side with him in the fast paced world of mobile communication, he kept me on my toes and focused on the taget.
Kemp is man of information and ideas, his passion for business and technology is evident, and his friendly and helpful approach make him a joy to work with! Kemp's creativity and expertise is an asset to any SME or NGO looking to build their online brand.
