... And some have kindly said:
"Peggy Kilburn walks on water." - Stewart Alsop, Principal, Alsop Louie Partners.
"Peggy Kilburn possesses a terrific talent for putting together very complicated conferences and organizing large numbers of people from all parts of the country. I find her one of the true professionals of this business." - Craig Luigart, Chief Information Officer, Veterans Health Administration, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
"Peggy Kilburn personally makes everyone around her feel part of a team and jumps to make sure things get done. I highly recommend her. She has integrity, intelligence, and an uncanny ability to get the job done." - Jack Dangermond, President, ESRI.
"Peggy Kilburn's organizational skills as well as industry knowledge make her one of the top show and conference organizers I am privileged to work with." - Tim Bajarin, President, Creative Strategies International.
"Peggy has that rare gift of being savvy about the industries her seminars cover. I have found her to be the only conference organizer I've met who can discuss both the content and the process of computer-related sessions. She's familiar with the technology, the topics, and the personalities of the trade shows she runs." - Andrew Gore, Former Editor-in-Chief, Macworld Magazine.
"Peggy is fearless in tackling new challenges, and relentless in pursuing excellence on behalf of her ultimate clients: the attendees at the events she directs." - Nick DeMartino, Director, Strategic Planning, The American Film Institute.
"Ms. Kilburn is in a class by herself, doing everything from the early contact to the final follow-through precisely, professionally, and without missing a beat. She's able to be ringmaster over the typical expo circus and make it all look easy. And if that's not enough, she treats every speaker as if they were the keynote presenter, giving a personal touch to the entire process." - Jahan Salahi, Managing Director, Agence Global.
"If you want to get your conference organized on time, on budget and on 'brand,' ask Peggy Kilburn to do it for you. Whether you're launching a new event or improving an established one, few people have the experience and intelligence - or will be as much fun to work with - as Peggy." - Harry Klein, Former Vice President, COMDEX Exhibitor Relations, Key3Media Events.
"Peggy Kilburn runs the wildest rodeo on the face of the planet. She keeps on top of the issues, whacks sinners back into line and makes them all smile at her, while consistently giving conference attendees more than they bargained for." - Richard Bowers, Executive Director, Optical Publishing Association.
"The high quality of the events Peggy Kilburn has orchestrated is in large measure due to her diligence, attention to detail and, above all, her earnest desire to provide attendees with complete value for money. Her endless source of patience in dealing with difficult lecturers or attendees is a model for conference organizers everywhere." - Dr. D.J. Martin, D.J. Films, Ottawa, Canada.
"I attribute the growth and success of Macworld Expo in large part to the quality and execution of its conference program, which is second to none in the industry. I have been impressed with the smoothness of the operation and relative ease in which it appears to occur, all of which I think is the direct result of the guidance of Peggy Kilburn as conference director for the events." - Bob Angus, Principal, A&R Partners.
"No one organizes and runs a conference better than Peggy Kilburn. Attendees could not ask for a conference palette of more variety and substance than Peggy's. There’s plenty of real value for everyone, no matter their level of proficiency. She's the best." - Leonard R. Wines, Chair, University of Southern California Macintosh User Group.
"Peggy Kilburn is particularly adept at crisis management, such as when a speaker drops out at the last minute. Conference-goers are never aware of the machinations behind the scenes because Peggy makes sure that the show goes on smoothly no matter what happens." - Robert R. Wiggins, Assistant Professor of Management, Tulane University.
"Peggy Kilburn always goes out of her way to make each speaker feel special and that we are her first priority. Her attention to detail is extraordinary. The bottom line is that if I received two invitations to speak at two different events for the same day, I'd accept one from Peggy over any other." - Rick Smolan, Creator of the "Day in the Life" book series, "Passage to Vietnam" and "24 Hours in CyberSpace."
"Don't be stupid. Just hire Peggy." - Guy Kawasaki, Former Chief Evangelist and Apple Fellow, Apple Computer, Inc.
