What SMART Exhibiting Guests Say

“Holy COW!  You have truly changed our business forever.  I really wanted to write and say thank you Ron, thank you for your time, your energy, your experience and for reaching out to us. I could hardly sleep since meeting with you. For the first time in ages I felt that someone really got small business and just how dynamic and exciting it can be. The collaboration between yourself and [Queensland State Government] is wonderful. There is so much value in Ron McDermott being part of small business. I have been involved in a long list of Government private sector collaborations – this one is by far the most productive, useful and meaningful. Your follow-up meetings have really moved us from a place of unknowing and in my case lack of confidence to fully understanding what we have and how we can begin to learn more about getting into the market.” Tania Hubbard, Gluten Free Grain Free Co.

“I’d just like to say thanks for the advice and support. It is heartening and encouraging to receive this through the initiative of a governmental body. Previous to this I had been asking myself, ‘Where was the support for small business operators when one after the other, Government representatives from different departments came after me for a pound of flesh and offered nothing in return?’ So thank you again. I have found the content you have shared, Ron, very useful and I appreciate the intent behind this initiative, for it counters my previous experience of regulatory bodies.” Jude Lane, Bonobo Nuts.

What International Exhibition Professionals Say

“I first met Ron McDermott in 2001 in Minneapolis, MN. Although I knew him by reputation, this was the first time we met face-to-face. Our relationship developed and grew through telephone meetings, emails and business dealings. Ron’s business instincts and management insights have only benefited me and my business. Of particular note Ron was there for me after the September 11 terrorist attacks decimated my business. I drew strength from the fact that someone on the other side of the world cared enough to listen to me, empathize and offer practical assistance without a financial incentive to do so. We’ve shared another round of discussions throughout the global financial crisis – in some ways just as harmful as the events of ten years ago. Ron’s compassion and sharing nature has again come to my aid. He innovates, fixes, improves,systemizes, inspires, leads, motivates, teaches and shares. And, he is never satisfied with less than his best performance.” Scott Price, President, Skyline Exhibits, New Jersey

“Ron McDermott is an extraordinarily talented speaker, leader of sales teams and trade show strategist. Ron’s knowledge, professionalism and positive attitude have enabled him to achieve great success throughout his career. In addition, his sense of humour is “second to none.” He has a talent for bringing people from diverse backgrounds together to achieve great things. Ron is a creative thinker, charismatic leader and all around great guy.” Elizabeth DeLuca, Sales Manager Display Works, California

“Please accept my sincerest gratitude for your efforts and especially your talents in your seamless preparation and extrodinary handling of the two Maritime Pacific trade shows we attended in Sydney. I have simply never experienced a pre-event presentation like yours!  Your experience, attention to detail and drive made these shows the success it was for us. Your creatively and dedication inspired complete confidence in knowing that any problems or issues would be quickly and effectively resolved and for that I am grateful. Your tact, approach to problem solving and expertise is the reason we will do business with you again in the future.
Steve Roberts, United States Office of Naval Research, Washington DC
