Next to coming to the Hardware show with my new product, hiring Maika was the best decision I made when planning for the show. I can’t say enough good things about her. She researched and understood my product before arriving at the show. Whatever she heard me say, she was quick to incorporate into her presentation of the product. Once she heard me answer a question, she used the same answer the next time someone asked. She was very proactive in engaging with the people walking by the booth. Getting their attention in a very friendly way. Most of the time addressing them by their name, which she would get off their name badges.Maika identified our target market, and high profile targets, and put extra effort into making those contacts. She made sure to scan the Lead Collection badges of all the people who showed intertest in the product. She did a better job demonstrating how the product worked, than I do, and I created it. She helped me tweak our booth’s layout to simplify it and draw more attention to the product, and we worked together to make small, but meaningful improvements to the demonstration.Most people thought she was directly involved with the product, not locally hired talent. She referred to it as our product, and projected a lot of confidence about it. I’ve never done a show like this, and having someone with extensive experience showcasing a product, was invaluable to me. I now see why the same companies hire her over and over again. I understand I got lucky this year, because she normally works this show for another company, but they could not make it this year. I hope, if I am back at the show again next year, she is available. Of course I may also have to compete with the other exhibitors that were around us, a few of them talked about wanting to hire her next year.Dealing with Live Talent from beginning to end was a professional and easy process. Stephanie gave me all the help I need to pick the right candidate, and process all the paperwork.
