Online & Social Media
I had the pleasure of working very closely with Ingeborg at Tourism Richmond for most of 2011. She was a fantastic, hardworking, and driven boss with a solid vision for where the marketing of Tourism Richmond should head. The impact she has left on the company has been profound. Before she headed the marketing Department the company had little to no online social media presence and a dated, yet functional website. Upon her departure Tourism Richmond has been completely 100% online integrated as well as re-branded with a fresh and eye catching modern day website. Ingeborg also spearheaded the Tourism Richmond initiative to embrace an online blogger personality to promote the city and draw attention; to my knowledge the first of any tourism board anywhere to do so. This was a hugely successful campaign garnering tens of thousands of views worldwide, all directed at Richmond.
She is an intelligent and technologically savvy 21st century marketer with a constant smile on her face. Thanks for a great year!

Roland Monteiro, General Manager, Hospitality Operations at River Rock
Ingeborg and I worked together on partnership and promotion for Tourism Richmond. I was so impressed with her – not only because she clearly understood and embraced the marketing needs that Richmond had, but also for her enthusiasm, which not only was an obvious part of her work for the destination, but spilled over into anything that had to do with growing business and consumer involvement in that business.
It is amazing to watch what happens when you combine enthusiasm with professional skills and talent, and that is what made working with her such a pleasure – and what makes recommending her so highly so very easy!

“I had the opportunity to work with Ingeborg while I was the Chair of the Marketing Committee for Tourism Richmond. One of the areas where I feel Tourism Richmond really excels at is in the area of social media marketing, an area that I also am very passionate about, but have novice experience. In this regard Ingeborg really brought Tourism Richmond to another level significantly increasing both their following and conversion on Facebook and Twitter. I felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from Ingeborg but also found her very receptive to the ideas that both myself and the rest of the committee were able to bring forward.”
