As the educational coordinator for the 2017 Landscape Industry Show, I found Mariette Martinez to be extremely responsive, low maintenance and fun to work with. The nearly 80 green industry professionals (office staff and owners and managers of small to medium businesses) who attended her two seminars were equally enthusiastic about the quality of her presentations. She scored exceptionally well on all of our evaluation metrics. Her average score for “Session met your expectations”, “speaker presented ideas clearly” and “speaker interacted with audience” was 4.9/5, with an amazing 98 percent of attendees indicating that they would attend another class taught by Mariette. Comments in the evaluations were along the lines of “great class — the only reason I came to the show!”; “excellent speaker! very knowledgeable!”; and “amazing speaker.” I strongly concur. Two thumbs up and five stars.
