"Being a speaker on a couple of the Industry Insights Webinars was a wonderful experience. They knew how to make me feel at ease and provided ample opportunity to ensure I was prepared for my part in the program. Considering the care with which the entire staff approached every aspect of the event, you'd think they were producing a full-fledged network television program. These people are top-notch, and they produce consistently great material that is not only educational in nature, but also fun to watch and relevant to their audience. They obviously know their stuff, and they're always striving for excellence. I highly recommend the team at IOT Marketing; they're a class act!"

Erin Holloway , President

“To say that Tiffani Neilson is dedicated would be an understatement; to call her “professional” would not do her justice. I am convinced that any project Tiffani touches will have “excellence” and “success” written all over it. I’ve had the honor of speaking at a couple of events produced by Tiffani and her team, both of which came off flawlessly. She is wise beyond her years and rises far beyond expectations. Her ability to get the job done with a smile, combined with her grasp of the overall picture impressed me from the very beginning. The end result? Consistently high-quality, riveting programs that you don’t want to miss. Somehow, she manages to get it done with just the right combination of determination, grace, professionalism, and style, earning an 11 on a scale of one to ten in my opinion. Tiffani Neilson gets a wholehearted five-star recommendation from me.”

“It was a great experience to participate in a webinar and work with Tiffani and the team at IOT Marketing. Everything about their approach was strategic and professional.
