Testimonials

Noblis Employee

“I was one of the attendees at today's workshop with Dan Pink. It was a fantastic experience. I found it very relevant and useful. This was the third time I've seen him present here, and he outdoes himself every time. Tech Tuesdays in general is something I really look forward to and, to me, is just one of the many highlights of working at Noblis. I wanted to express my appreciation for the opportunity to participate in today's workshop...and also offer a thank you for the Tech Tuesdays author-speaker series in general. From writers like Dan Pink, to Nassim Taleb, to Daniel Kahneman just last month, and all the others in between...I am literally amazed at the quality and variety of authors you manage to bring in. I have gotten a lot out of the presentations and try to attend as many of them as I can, not to mention actually reading the books! Thanks again and enjoy the weekend.”

"I was introduced to Hooks Book Events (HBE) by an experienced author and internationally-recognized expert speaker. The consequential partnership that has developed with the HBE team has been beneficial, creative, and enjoyable for me and for my clients, personally and professionally. Why? It’s simple—we have the same goals for event development and delivery--customer service, attendee experience, and successful results. We have collaborated to identify speakers, topics, and books that were selected to increase the educational value and program content for a number of information technology, cybersecurity, and executive management events in the DC area. In addition to timely and reliable service, HBE offers broad knowledge of exciting new publications on a range of subjects, as well as candid feedback on speaker skills and best fit for specific program types and venues. It is my pleasure to rely on their staff expertise and professionalism today and into the future."

Noblis — H. Gilbert Miller, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer

"Hooks Book Events identifies and invites potential speakers, then facilitates and executes the event ….We are pleased to be a partner with HBE in delivering a fuel of new ideas and perspectives to the Noblis innovation engine." 

Greater Washington Board of Trade — Jim Dinegar, President and CEO

"We are VERY excited to host the event with Bill Gates Sr. at the end of April. Hooks Book Events is making April a wonderful month because you are bringing us the fabulous Cokie Roberts, too! I still hear good things about our night with the Animal Spirits authors, Nobel Prize Winner George Akerlof and Yale Professor Dr. Bob Shiller. That is the right caliber speaker and, as word spreads, we will drive more and more people to purchase their books and know of your firm. Thanks for this opportunity to work together. I am excited about things."
