I love the ethics Planner Protect demonstrates when negotiating client contracts.
Heather does not operate in her own interests but in the interest of her clients.

CanSPEP workshop Venue Contracts: Digging Deep and Wide.
After 20 years in the event industry, it is stimulating to attend a workshop that demonstrates we still have things to learn and can continue to improve our services. Heather’s presentation was informative, eye-opening and well delivered.
Taking Heather’s workshop on VENUE CONTRACTS: NAVIGATING THE LEGALESE is a must for all event planners. Whether you negotiate contracts for your clients or just wish to understand the legal jargon of contracts, heather spells it out so clearly and effectively. I totally understand it all so much better now and my clients will defiantly appreciate and value what I am now able to do for them.

Heather Reid is a consummate professional. Her session on hotel contracts was well researched, well organized and very informative. I have negotiated a lot of contracts in my 12 years in the industry but still learned a great deal from Heather.
