Amber is a high energy innovator that can take basic ideas/vision/goals and expand them into a unique experience that leaves people discussing the event for weeks/months. Amber is also a visionary that helps obtain participation from others to pull off these unforgettable events.
Amber is a leader that is keenly aware of the talents of those who report to her. She has an innate ability to inspire those around her, both inside and outside of a direct reporting structure; she truly embraces Good to Great Leadership on a daily basis. She knows when to restrain and when to exercise power, while adhering to all policies, procedures and rules of decorum. Through creative experimentation and influencing others without authority she is able to effectively weigh the theoretical versus practical considerations and applications so not only the integrity of the process is maintained, but cross divisional synergy is the priority it is an enjoyable working environment for all involved from both educational and operational perspectives. She is a leader that thinks quickly on her feet and is very comfortable with work that entails design, invention and change.
Amber can be summed up as a leader that builds enduring greatness though a paradoxical blend of personal humility and professional will, who displays workmanlike diligence by infecting others with an incurable need to produce sustainable results. She is resolved to do whatever it takes to make the company great, no matter how big or how hard the decisions. With that being said, she would be of great benefit to any organization that would be lucky enough to have her as a part of their team.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with Amber at the Small Business Boot Camp she created. Amber's vision, attention to detail, organization and enthusiasm were amazing. I witnessed Amber's ability to provide leadership, and inspiration to her clients. I would recommend Amber to anyone who is ready to step up their game.
I am a big fan of Amber Hurdle because she is an amazing leader with creative strategies for keeping a team on task and engaged. I was always excited for opportunities to plan and execute events with Amber at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with Amber again.
Amber Hurdle has the unique ability to understand the importance of completing the goals at hand and seeing how those goals relate to the greater strategy of the company. I also have great respect for Amber because she is such a down to earth person. Amber is able to lead and at the same time she makes every member of the team feel important. She is a master at getting people on board. With Amber, an organization gets the best out of team members because their ideas are welcomed and thoughtfully evaluated. Then, once a strategy is developed, I have rarely seen someone with the vision to complete a task with effective follow through and imagination. Everyone around Amber gets excited about a project because she is so passionate about the team's success, and contributors see the plan they helped develop come to together.
Any assembly will be lucky to include Amber Hurdle as a member. Her leadership ability is outstanding and she is thoughtful, well-spoken, and caring about the needs of her team and the organization as a whole. I wholeheartedly recommend Amber as a leader because she will optimize her charge in order to make the most effective organization.
I highly recommend Amber for all types of communication, organizational development, and strategic planning work! She has vast knowledge regarding organizational cultures and is very seasoned when it comes to creating strategies to advance and achieve great things in a company!
I had the pleasure to work with Amber at the Terry College of Business where she was the Director of Annual Giving. Amber is an exceptional talent and she had an immediate and measurable impact. Amber is an effective communicator, team player, and inspiring leader. Simply put, Amber get's it and she would be a true asset to any organization.
Amber is an exceptional business woman, she has the business mentality of Donald Trumph but , the small home town personality everyone loves. Easy to work with great at time managment and keeping things running smoothly even if she is being pulled in a million directions.
Amber Hurdle is a dedicated professional with a knack for paying close attention to detail whilst never losing sight of the big picture. Amber's work ethic and "people skills" are immeasurable. A solid member of any team, Amber is also quite capable of leading a project from conception to completion. She never settles for anything less than the best, a trait she is gracefully able to instill in her colleagues. I would not hesitate to recommend Amber's work and am happy to count her as a former colleague and friend.
Amber exudes enthusiasm and careful planning in every project that she becomes involved. Her savvy people skills combined with a grounded business sense make for success in any situation. Impressive.
I have utilized Amber’s superb event planning skills on more than one occasion. Her resilient ability to adapt and “roll with the punches” is impeccable to say the least. No matter how limited the resources, she was able to provide sensationally creative alternatives. If you need to get your group going, she is the one to do it. With her bubbling charm and quick witted humor, she can get even the sourest stick in the mud to lighten up, relax, and have a little fun. From personalizing small events to herding the large ones, Planit Nashville is bound to be the right choice for your event. I know it was for mine!
Amber's an upbeat, high-energy event planner who gets results. Her combination of intelligence, tenacity and friendliness works every time!
