Amanda literally created the first accredited influencer marketing courses for some of the world's top schools. Amanda is simply a force to reckon with in the influencer marketing industry and without question one of the most valuable marketing experts you will find. An industry must-read!”

“Amanda gets it. She knows what it takes to build relevant brands in the 21st century by doing real marketing, not just advertising. In particular, she’s a master of influencer marketing, and has powerful insights and recommendations to help brand leaders divert their resources away from generating attention and toward increasing influence. I consider Amanda a true pioneer in the field of influencer marketing, having first honed her craft as an early adopter of social media marketing, and now ably sharing her expertise in influencer marketing as a professor, author, speaker and advisor. Perhaps best of all, she’s as kind and generous as she is smart.”

“It’s tough to use words to describe Amanda Russell. She is a true expert in marketing and specifically influencer marketing. Amanda thinks about influencer marketing in an entirely different way and can demonstrate what she teaches so effectively (and entertainingly) that people actually get it. There are many that are very good in training in speaking about marketing, influence and success; but few can do it in a way that the learner can easily apply what they have learned. Its hard to describe, but Amanda is able to teach and demonstrate in a way where it just clicks. Simply put Amanda Russell is very, very impressive.”

“Your guidance on how to expand influence via social media also has implications for non-profit and philanthropy work. Social media influence is a new bridge not just for cultural influence but also anywhere from product to program to policy. Anyone doing work in changing the world should heed your advice. You can quote me on that one.”

Amanda Russell’s has proven yet again how to take a dream & vision and turn it into a reality with her launch and execution of the Renaissance Women (RW) Summit. Her approach and personality set the tone as both dynamic and powerful yet refreshing and warm. I left the summit with profound and transformative knowledge in so many diverse and personally applicable areas. I learned a few things about myself that have shifted a few things in the way I conduct my own personal and professional life. I am honored to be apart of RW and look forward to being part of anything Amanda puts her energy and beliefs towards

On another note: Can I also add a personal tidbit that I loved and appreciated? About halfway through, Amanda, looking every bit the stunning beauty that she is known to be, in a tailored white dress and sky high stilettos, puts on her combats boots, and walks around to EVERY person, at EVERY table to personally sit and introduce herself to each and every woman. I loved it!

Amanda is a different kind of woman, she has a natural charisma and magnetism, & even as a television producer, I’ve met few people in my lifetime with such a quality on this level, and it is very needed today. RW and Amanda make you feel special, like you are important and can do anything -and she’s leading the charge of bringing dynamic women together to do more than just talk.”
