Founder & CEO Denver Equestrians Riding School. Owner, Colorado Equestrian Center. Small business expert and marketing consultant.
I supported my horse habit with a 25 year career as a consultant in the marketing and advertising industry. In 2008, with very little resources, I decided to follow my passion and work in the equine industry. I started by teaching lessons myself on leased horses to developing a successful riding school program to owning a 32,000sf equestrian complex in just 5 years. I now share my step-by-step process with barn owners, horse trainers, riding instructors and those who dream of working in this industry.
I highly recommend Corinne. She has an incredible work ethic, completely devoted to doing great work and making sure it gets done in the most efficient and timely manner. She manages time, projects and most of all people with the utmost of integrity and dedication. She's a great asset to any team as well as a great team leader. It was a pleasure working with her. Her enthusiasm and sense of humor made it a wonderful atmosphere to work in, especially in a business that lends itself to tight deadlines, lots of last minute changes and heavy workloads.

Corrine made an enormous difference in our business. At that time, our agency was about $100m, and about 150 employees - but we lacked a traffic department! After much debate, we decided to investigate what it would take to implement traffic. As you might guess, traffic touches virtually every area of an ad agency, and it was an enormous decision for our company. Corrine helped us as a consultant to essentially turnkey the implementation, from initial planning through hiring and processes. Things went very well, thanks Corinne. Her guidance and perspective made all the difference. I can't overstate how helpful and professional she was - she took a very challenging, agency-wide project and made it a huge success. I would hire Corinne again in a heartbeat!
We hired Corinne to help us transist from a not-very-effective traffic system to project management. She did it in the time and budget allotted in a way that exceeded our expectations. She even helped to locate and recruit a very talented person to run the department after her job was done.
Corrine is a detailed-oriented Traffic/Project Manager who is extremely knowledgeable of the creative process. She was an excellent resource when I needed freelance help, as a result I hired her many times. She was the one person I knew that could jump in a manage any project at any stage with little to no supervision. Corrine has a high work ethic, a great personsality and she is a pleasure to work with.
Corinne Lettau is a marketing genius. She is one of the most focused, driven and results-oriented professionals in the industry. In 2001, Corinne took my photography images to the New York International Licensing Show and landed contracts with several multi-national corporations. As a direct result of Corinne's market-savvy talent, our company reached levels of profit we previously thought unimaginable. I highly recommend Corrinne and know that her outstanding reputation and extensive experience will be an asset to any organization.
I worked with Corinne on numerous assignments and accounts at Fallon McElligott in Minneapolis, and she proved to be immensely talented at managing projects, providing timely communication to the teams involved, and meeting deadlines even under the most extreme circumstances.
I worked in the same department with Corinne at w+k's portland office, at that time it was the mother ship of the young and growing agency. Chaos was the accepted rule, and managing projects in that atmosphere required long hours, a massive sense of humor and certain ability to be a freak about control while at the same time standing back and eating the popcorn while soaking in the disaster flicks that plays out before you on multiple screens.
Simply stated, Corinne gets it, she thrived in that environment and every deadline was met, and no child was left behind. She is a great hire.
I brought Corinne in at both DDB Seattle and Holland Mark in Boston to implement a traffic department(aka Project Management) and she was a tremendous success. Corinne listens very well, and then works extremely well with the team to get the job done effectively by empowering team members. She left us with a strong traffic system in each case, and our agencies were far superior operations because of the systems she set up for us. Would hire her again in heartbeat.
From the time I began working with Corinne in the mid-90s, I was impressed by her taste level, and her savvy ability to interact with people. Since then, my respect for her has only grown over the years. Corinne is a rare combination of organization and insight. She manages complex and high-level projects with ease. And perhaps most importantly, she does it all with a smile that lights up the room!
Corinne is exceptionally skilled at bringing customers to her business and marketing in such a way as to get people in the door to then have repeat business. She is extremely adept at marketing and advertising. I have seen her grow a business from one to over ten employees in a year by marketing and getting a steady client base to demand more employees. Beyond her skills, Corinne is very personable and a joy to work with. I highly recommend her.
Corinne is an excellent riding instructor. My daughter is 9 years old and have been riding with Corinne for 2 years now. She has attended the camps, pony clubs and private lessons. Corinne is very patient and wonderful with the kids. I would recommend Corinne and Denver Equestrians to everyone of all ages.
