It was my pleasure to work with Soma Jurgensen during a strategic planning session that we launched in 2013. From 2010 to 2012, our organization saw substantial growth. However, like most organizations, we found that our marketing efforts and business process needed some assistance, as this growth had come at a significant expense to the organization. Soma worked with us and helped to identify strategic improvements that would deliver sustainable and profitable growth that was aligned with our technical capabilities.In a few meetings, Soma was able to create surveys and helped us interview senior management and customer facing employees. She correlated the survey data and she setup up strategic planning sessions with the leadership team. Soma then helped us identify process improvements and suggested ways to promote our organization and capabilities.Soma is energetic, enthusiastic, engaged and ‘pulls no punches.’ She will tell you exactly what you need to do to improve. I highly recommend Soma in any marketing campaign or business process improvement initiative.
Soma presented “Negotiate with Confidence” for Women In Networking (WIN). Immediately afterward two of our members approached me to say how much they learned and suggested that we bring her back for a “part 2” to learn even more. Soma professionally presented useful information and insights, and she was responsive to questions from the audience. We would definitely be interested in having her present again.
I’ve collaborated with Soma as a speaker in her Managing Diversity in the Workforce course and as part of the School of Business Advisory Board. What has impressed me most is the way in which she blends her business mindset with her role as an educator. She has a rare combination of business savvy, teaching skills, and the ability to connect with students that make her classes relevant and personal. She embodies the new model of teacher required for preparing a 21st Century workforce.
Soma is one of the most passionate and dynamic marketers I have had the pleasure of working with. She has extensive knowledge of developing and activating challenging and multifaceted promotional campaigns while ensuring she is continuously driving to meet the business objective at hand.
“Soma is a truly skilled facilitator/trainer and speaker with an engaging, clear and effective style. She inspires new thinking/behavior and provides a refreshing approach to networking which is actionable and intentional.”
One small paragraph won’t suffice for Soma Jurgensen. … She commands attention in the classroom and extracts critical thinking at microscopic and telescopic points of view. Soma exudes confidence, dignity, and compassion in everything she does. She embraces technology, employs myriad teaching methods, and is comfortable in leadership positions big and small.
If you are only networking, you’re not doing all you canAs someone who has struggled with starting up new small businesses, I’ve spent a lot of time reading books and blogs about the importance of networking and finding leads. Soma Datta’s book, “Fearless Follow-up” stands apart, because she goes beyond merely finding leads and takes you down the path to conversion. She rightfully identifies that fear is an obstacle for many of us, and then provides a clear and concrete path out of the fear. I expected the book to be something of a thought exercise, but it’s much more practical than that, which both surprised me and pleased me. Don’t relegate this book to the shelf. It belongs on your desk, open, where you can see it every day, scribble in it, and let it prompt you to take action and follow-up fearlessly.
[Soma’s Networking Success] is a great workshop for newbies and old hands alike. It busts some myths and explores your mindset about networking events, questions to ask yourself to set clear goals, and then moves to tips and insights. First-rate, practical material one can begin to implement immediately.
Soma clearly demonstrates in her remarkable e-book, Leading Teams that Get Results, that there is a difference between building and doing business as a team. She understands the fact that so many of us are struggling along as a group.If you are looking for specific tips and want to have a conversation with someone on how to move from being a group to a team – then Soma is the person to contact. She truly serves with passion and thoughtful understanding regarding the hows and whys of building a team that operates with purpose.Thank you, Soma, for having that important conversation with me; your insight and reading your e-book has made a difference to this business person.
