“We are unanimous here in declaring the show a great overall success. The focus that your methods created on our team was a critical factor in many areas: defining roles, unifying all aspects of our presentation, specifying show targets and quantifying goals. For example, we have actual figures for stops-per-hour and handoffs-per-hour, booth traffic by the hour, and which members of our team were most successful in which roles.

Beyond the technical aspects, the show was simply more fun to do. As a team we determined to make a colorful presence with a low-key, fun attitude. That was great for us, and the enthusiasm caught on at the show. We won a booth award and had activity at our booth -- and the energy to handle it -- just about the full ten hours.

So, thank you for the good direction. We expect to use it even more effectively in 2008.”
