  • Testimonial from a Speaker

    I have been a presenter for 25 years and in all that time have sought to partner with someone that could help me get to the next level. Most speaker’s bureaus require that presenters develop their own media materials and often won’t even consider presenters that don’t already have them. A big problem for many presenters, including me, is the self-promotion piece. What a wonderful surprise I had when I connected with In The Wings and discovered the dynamic duo that you are. Finally a talent manager that really delivers! In the short time we have been working together, I have more clarity around my brand and image than I have ever had; clarity that I am certain will translate to higher fees and more engagements. Your services are above and beyond anything I ever imagined! With you as the wind beneath my wings, I have no doubt that I will reach great new heights. You are both truly amazing! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!

  • Testimonial from a Customer

    Feel free to share my opinion of working with Colleen Wilks of “In The Wings Speaker Management Agency”. Part of the problem I’ve found is that when you book any appointment through a third party, the chances of it canceling or changing are much higher. However, Colleen had a delightful and endearing approach that gave me a lot of confidence and you’ve been great to work with. By all means give my information to anyone as a reference in terms of the process.

  • Testimonials from Plum District

    Colleen Wilks from In the Wings made the whole process – from hiring the speaker, the day of the event, and follow up – a flawless process. She worked with us to make sure that the terms of the agreement worked for us, and was instrumental in making sure that we had enough direct interaction with the speaker to tailor the speech to the needs of our event.

    -Margaret Godsey

    We were working under a tight deadline, and Colleen Wilks from In the Wings made the entire process painless and effortless. She went above and beyond in ensuring that the relationship and agreement were good matches for both parties, and facilitated numerous conversations to create a program that was unique and targeted to our specific audience and needs.

  • Testimonial from a Customer
    In the Wings came highly recommended to us and I truly understand why. From the moment I connected with them it felt I had a true friend on my side that consistently pushed forward until we found that right fit. With a slightly tight schedule and limited budget, they worked her magic and brought us two great speakers, with excellent credentials who would truly deliver to the audience and fit our needs. A very professional, confident and commit to excellence company. I would happily recommend to anyone and definitely look forward to working with “In the Wings” again!

  • Testimonial on In The Wings Event Planning
    Wine is always a great reason to celebrate and always the right anecdote for any occasion. In the Wings special wine event with Tim Gaiser was most definitely an enlightening experience. I’m rating the event with an overall two thumbs up! Colleen and Marla are clearly natural planners; perfectly orchestrating the flow and social interaction of the evening. Directing conversations, vibes and entertainment are second nature to these ladies. It was a serendipitous experience for us as a coffee company. Fantastic job! We had a wonderful time!
