I’ve known Heidi since early 2014 and knew she would be the person with the right professional and interpersonal skills to help my team develop better team dynamic and communication capabilities to support our goals. 

After her successful experience working with a leadership group at the University, I hired her to facilitate customized workshops with my staff. Her expertise highlighted subjects including Building Better Business Relationships, Team Building, and Personality Styles, Overcoming Objections both Personal and Business, as well as helping my team gain confidence in their communication skills. Heidi brings her psychology background with real-life tools, techniques, and strategies that can be implemented immediately.

Heidi’s style is inspirational, interactive and fun! She will continue to be an asset to my department.

Seldom do I find a speaker who impacts our audience the way Heidi does…Her knowledge of leadership development, stress management, and customer service is invaluable.

I have worked with many speakers / trainers / consultants and Heidi Parr Kerner is by far the most accommodating and enthusiastic collaborator out there!

Coordinator of Porreco College Outreach & Continuing Education, Edinboro University

Our nonprofit leaders are understandably reluctant to put themselves before their work when speaking in public. As a facilitator in our “Story Project,” Heidi uses her poise, personality, and passion to help leaders strike the right balance and make themselves the drivers of their own story.

Many participants have voiced afterward that this was a breakthrough experience in their careers as nonprofit leaders. Heidi leads the way in helping participants connect with their audiences and with themselves.

Robert Wooler

Director, The Nonprofit Partnership

When I got an invitation to speak at my first large venue, I knew I wanted to polish my presentation and have more confidence!

I had always wanted to do more speaking but didn’t have the background, structure and being young in the industry, I wanted more credibility.

I hired Heidi to work with me individually for 3 months, I learned the industry of speaking, how to own the room, a structure that delivers every time…and oh, yeah – I now “close” 50% of the room for new clients! Thanks Heidi for all your help.

Dr. Elyssa Lindenberger

I’ve had the opportunity to attend many of Heidi’s educational and inspirational talks and workshops including Customer Service, Public Speaking and Professional Networking. I’ve hired Heidi to coach me individually as well as to work with my staff to improve their communication skills and to do some team building!

I most recently attended The Society of County Human Resource Professionals of Pa. where Heidi was the closing speaker her topic being: Developing The Leader Within You.

Another great seminar with Heidi helping me with my personal and professional growth!

Sabrina Fischer

Director of Human Resources, County of Erie

When we went looking for a unique speaker for our company’s professional development program, we also searched for the right speaker. Then we found Heidi. And what a find!

She delivered. Pure and simple. She has presented to our group several times on topics including Communication Skills for Women, Public Speaking, Stress Management, and Life Balance.

She is funny, poignant, dramatic, visual – in short, the total package. I highly recommend Heidi for a program of any size, for any industry, global or domestic.

Fake It ‘Till You Make It

I have a confession to make, I am a recovering introvert. Yes, it’s true! I wasn’t always the confident, dynamic speaker and businesswoman that I am today. Hard work, practice, training, and desire to grow will create a personal transformation for anyone, but especially for introverts like me.
