Debra Mathias - Connect to Clients Consulting LLC

My personal experience has been in sales and sales management for 30 years.  I started my sales career in radio advertising for Beasley Broadcasting in Kinston, North Carolina and worked for the Wolf family at WBNS Radio in Columbus.  

Starting my new career in the courier industry I worked for 2 other courier companies before finding my home at Best Courier, Inc.   My goal was to make sure that our customers receive the best service possible at a fair market price and that our company succeeded in business.  I was associated with Best for 20 years and in that time increased a 25 driver $325K courier company to a 65 driver $6.5 million dollar a year courier company using Networking with LinkedIn and networking in person.

I have owned my own company, Connect to Clients Consulting, LLC for the past 6 years and taught Networking with LinkedIn classes for companies in need of boosting their sales through targeted networking and partnerships through LinkedIn.  It is my goal that companies learn to promote, market and grow their business with my proven system.  


1. Sales, Marketing, Branding, Promotions and Management-30 years
2. Training Sales and LinkedIn-6 years
3. Client Acquisition-30 years

Recommendations can be found on my website at and on my LinkedIn page
