Praise for Earl Heard’s seminars and keynote presentations:

“I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Heard and hear his story at the Pt. Arthur chamber banquet a few weeks ago. I wanted to send you a note expressing my appreciation of not only sharing your experiences, but mentoring me as leader, business owner and a family man. Your message about business growth relationships and networking are a proven methodology based on the success of several companies. I would encourage others to take the opportunity to plug into your system.      — David Owens – Industrial Rescue

“Earl Heard is obviously quite close to the subject of treating people the way you’d like be treated. His keynote presentation before the Sabine Neches Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers at the Industrial Fire World Conference & Expo illustrated that very well, whether the concept is applied to a business setting or a personal setting.”
— Alan Brown, Health Supervisor, Total Port Arthur, Texas, Refinery

“The audience at the Cooling Technology Institute’s annual conference was riveted by Earl’s anecdotes. He provided a different and refreshing perspective on achieving success and happiness on the job and off.”
— Glenn Rees, Program Chairman, Cooling Technology Institute Annual Conference and Exhibition

“Earl, thank you for everything: speaking at the symposium, being a huge supporter of the (TEEX) fire school, but most of all, thanks for making a difference in my life. Going to the ‘Lone Survivor’ prescreening had a huge impact on me. I am a two-time combat vet myself. I truly loved seeing the outpouring of gratitude and charity made possible by your support. Please keep in touch and thank you for the experience. I am better because of it.” 
— Christopher Lyon, Assistant Director, Mays Business School, Center for Executive Development, Texas A&M University

“Given his prior hands-on industry experience and almost five decades of networking with professionals of all ages, Earl’s presentations are relatable to anyone in our business. He is both engaging and informative, whether he’s musing about the lessons learned during his childhood selling TV schedules in his neighborhood and concessions at sporting events or imparting his most useful trade show tactics and techniques. Several people in my company have learned and applied his Alligator Management and Marketing techniques in their interactions with clients and prospects, with great success.”
— David Fanta, CEO & President (Retired), Total Safety

“Mr. Heard is very energetic and informative during his presentations, whether he is talking about lessons learned during his lifetime, useful marketing tips, safety techniques or just good management observations. Just about anyone who is associated with our line of work, whether in operations, management, sales or safety will benefit from the presentation.

Anyone who attends one of Mr. Heard’s presentations will come away both entertained and enlightened and also with some new ideas on how to better themselves within our industry.”
— Rodney Landry, Project Manager, Maintenance and Turnaround Division, Turner Industries Group LLC

“Earl’s seminar was absolutely beneficial to our company. His seminar is realistic, and our salespeople really enjoyed it. The information is practical, and his sales techniques are proven.”
— Paul Tyree, Chief Operating Officer, Total Safety

“I enjoyed Earl Heard sharing his marketing techniques with us and I look forward to future events of this kind.”
