I was nervous about hiring a complete stranger to monitor my booth at a local trade show, especially a complete stranger that I found on the internet. Well, with Kim Willis, I was very lucky: I struck gold. Within an hour of her showing up, I knew she was a perfect choice. Trustworthy: she monitored my booth, which contains over a million dollars of valuable antiques. Intelligent: Kim interacted with visitors (most of whom were cranky old men) with grace, humor, and poise. Hard-working, patient, a quick-learner. She has my highest possible recommendation."

Kim began working with SPEAKeasy at our launch in 2007. Kim quickly became a vital part of our company through her valued experience, work ethic, and dedication to the training and overseeing of the execution of our promotional events. Although Kim no longer lives in Tennessee, we continue to book her for special events in Tennessee such as Bonnaroo Music Festival to manage our traveling teams several times per year. I feel confident that Kim would be an asset to your organization as well and I highly recommend her. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further or with any questions.
