I reached out to Heather after reading her articles on the trade show industry. Heather was everything I expected and more: A deep expert in the industry with knowledge of the entire soup-to-nuts process of developing and delivering a quality show and sales results. Without a second thought I hired her to help with a channel development project and was blown away by her professionalism, drive, and commitment to excellence. We took the channel from a raw notion to a pilot case in under ninety days, and her insight was utilized at every stage (marketing, training, design, scheduling, budgeting). I would highly recommend her and would be happy to work with her again.

Hamilton Pridgen, Sr. Manager, Strategy (National Banking Brand)

Heather is a very compelling presenter. Her ability to take subject matter that is technical and deliver it in a clear and simple manner is amazing. Heather was very effective at generating traffic from attendees passing our exhibit and keep their attention during our presentations. Her follow-up after during the Q&A section was excellent. I look forward to working with Heather again. She is very professional, able to work through dynamic changes, and was great to work with.

Joel Rieger, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Dahua Technology

Heather is a very personable, professional presenter. She comes prepared to deliver a great presentation, can ad lib to engage with the crowd, and works well with others. She adapts well to last minute changes and is flexible with the presentation schedule tailoring it to the show floor traffic. She knows what works well when it comes to trade show presentations and delivers a top-notch performance. We like her so much we have hired her again for an upcoming show.

Lisa Matichak, Business Planning and Marketing Professional, Bromium

Heather is a fantastic professional presenter/spokesperson. She's very professional and energetic in her approach, as well as her delivery/presentation. Very important for us (as a technology company) she was also able to quickly grasp detailed and technical material, and then present it to an audience in an engaging, fun, and authoritative manner.

Keith Waryas, Global Marketing Leader, Technology Services Portfolio at EMC

“Facial plastic and plastic surgeons are a very specific group of clients, and engaging them and creating relationships can be more involved than with the typical tradeshow attendee in different industries. When I needed a spokesmodel for my booth at the annual meeting of the Multi-Specialty Foundation for Aesthetic Surgical Excellence, I wanted someone who could not only generate leads and close sales, but who was intelligent, incredibly articulate, and very quick to understand the personalities and egos involved in my industry. Heather stood out from our very first contact–her marketing statement and professional presentation caught my eye immediately, and she measured up to my needs more than I could have wished. I’ve worked with Heather for four meetings so far, and I’ve taken her on the road. At this point, she’s part of my team, and part of the face of my company.”

–Catherine Maley, MBA Author, Your Aesthetic Practice President, Cosmetic Image Marketing; Speaker

“I just wanted to let you know that Heather Burdette has done it again! She’s successfully assisted us in another show and done a fantastic job! We adore her and she’s so easy to work with and polite, helpful, attentive, and quick witted at all times. She does know her way around a booth. Thank you for having Heather on your team. She’s a winner and a wonderful asset to your organization. We can’t wait to see her at the next show down here in Houston in September!”

–Kenedy Hughes, Exhibit Manager, IHS Global

“We hired Heather to help us capture leads in our trade show booth. She was very personable and professional. I was amazed at how quickly she understood our organization and was able to speak with prospects as if she had been with us for some time. If you are interested in getting more out of your next trade show booth, I highly recommend hiring Heather to represent you.”

–David Drain, Senior Vice President of Events at Networld Media Group
