Testimonials About Chuck Lasker

Chuck is an accomplished professional at whatever he chooses to undertake. He takes his work seriously while having a comforting demeanor, regardless how difficult is the task or how the circumstances change around it. Chuck is incredibly responsive, considering the majority of the work is done remotely. It requires a professional to, first of all, know what they are doing and then to be not afraid to seek clarity when things change as they do in dynamic situations. He is accountable for his role without needing to be held accountable. These are the traits I look for in a partner and Chuck exceeds in all of them.

Testimonials about Social Kauai’s Social Media Marketing Crash Course:

“Just finished a social media seminar with Social Kauai. Very informative! Thanks Chuck!”

— Cody Abrell, Friends of Bethany Hamilton Foundation

“Spending the day with Chuck Lasker of Social Kauai. He’s a good instructor and highly recommend his workshop. Especially if you want to get inspired to build your social media presence for your business.”

— Noah Hamilton, Noah Hamilton Photographers

“Great class, highly recommended!”

— Yu Ohki, Kalaheo Flowers

“Just wanted to drop a little thank you note to you and your team! When my boss told me about attending this seminar I was a little skeptical because my mindset was that I already knew enough about social networking for my company, but within the first hour I had learned a lot and the slide that showed what was to come really peaked my interest as I was looking to do some of those things myself! In fact, by lunch my head was spinning with ideas for my company.

I have had a few days to work on some of the things that you went over and will be implementing a number of other items you addressed! I look forward to sitting down with you in the near future and going over some more.

Great job and a big mahalo for your desire in helping our local businesses succeed!”

— Paka, Seasport Divers

Update from Paka: “Aloha guys! Just to give you an update since attending the Social Media for Business Marketing class and implementing what was discussed we have seen a 410% increase in monthly users on Facebook and 148% in new likes and 1,175% in post feedback! Much mahalo again!”

“As a Marketing Specialist for a financial institution, it is important for me to make social media part of my marketing strategy. Currently I am using several social media products and have attended a couple of social media seminars that really didn’t show me how to use social media as a marketing tool. I wanted to understand the psychology of social media and I didn’t want it to take up too much time. Social Kauai changed that by teaching ‘Be your own Brand Ambassador, Keep Comments Interesting, Engage in Meaningful Conversations and if you like something then click LIKE’.

Chuck Lasker saved the day. He shared ideas and strategies that I use every day. After taking the Social Media Marketing Crash Course, I found a new confidence and purpose in my social media marketing. I am happy to say, I am no longer just “Winging It”. Social Media Marketing With Purpose…Thanks Social Kauai.”

— Lisa Murphy, Marketing Specialist/KGEFCU

“I had a GREAT time at The Social Media Crash Course. Chuck Lasker is an excellent teacher!! I almost didn’t attend because I thought I knew everything I needed to know about social media. Not only am I glad I went, I also learned a lot of valuable information, in just the first two hours. The entire class was a blast! It was entertaining, fun and interesting! Highly recommended!”

— Jason Fujinaka, Kauai’s FM97

BIG MAHALOS to Chuck and Sharon.”

— Angela Tillson, The Breadfruit Institute
