“You really “get it” in terms of business meetings: you have taken the time to understand what we do (in broad terms), you are funny as hell, and you really understand the mechanics of “show business” at conferences of this type. You have rescued us from sure disaster many times thanks to your great instincts. You’ve offered great advice as to program flow and places to improve. You’ve worked expertly with the production team and crew to maximize the impact of the staging and resources we have. And best of all, you have made our audiences laugh in the midst of long, dry meetings.”

Richard Laible Professional Trade Show Presenter

Professional Trade Show Presenter, Richard Laible

“Thanks Richard — the feedback is in, and everyone was most impressed with the job you did and how much this livened up the sessions delivered at SAPPHIRE! Your approach was spot-on, and will be the model going forward on how to do sessions and events like this — the crowd was so much more engaged, and therefore retained the content and key messages”
– Fred M. Isbell, senior Director, SAP 

“We went from having 200-300 guests in our booth to 1500 guests in 3 days largely due to Richard’s outstanding talents. Not only does he entice the audience to enter our booth, but he sustains their attention with his wittiness until we get a chance to talk with each client. He also impressed us with his knowledge of our products and threw out fun facts about our properties which was an added plus that we were not expecting. We would love to have Richard in our booth every year.”
– Shelly Samuels, National Sales Manager, Mandalay Bay Resort

“Richard Laible did an incredible job at keeping customers entertained during the presentation. The Cisco booth had constant traffic flow that rarely died down … a great show for Cisco.”
– Charlotte Montemayor, Trade Show Manager, Cisco Systems

“Marketing budgets are always tight but creating demand, establishing a user community, and brand recognition are expensive. If you are going to spend the resource on an activity you’d better consider a draw to get the conversation started and moving in the right direction. Richard is more than a draw he is aggressively proactive. We gave him a target list and every target was captured, we gave him a solutions briefing and it was weaved into the introductory conversation with the target, more importantly he weeded out the tire kickers so that our subject matter experts weren’t wasting their time. He is much more than a contracted resource, he is a member of the team participating and collaborating from the onset with a very experienced voice.”
– Bill Carney, Director of Marketing – TIBCO Spotfire
