Color scheme, rollup, how to present the brochures and other material, how to be visible – just leave it to Heike. You will be able to communicate with the visitors in a relaxed way and actually enjoy the event because you know that everything is under control and well managed.

INTERNATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT | LEADERSHIP

I first started working with Heike as she was building a regional team across EMEA, to lead a significant initiative that would step-change how P&G acquired, stored and reported retailers’ shipment and sales data.

Data accuracy, timely delivery and the ability to aggregate shipments across different customer formats and countries were key deliverables; with productivity gains, manual report elimination and efficient delivery of actionable data the key metrics. The initiative was a global effort, with the first steps launched in Europe under Heike’s leadership; and was unprecedented in the industry at the time.
Heike recruited and engaged multi-functional managers into the Regional team. The project team were answerable to the sponsors – the board made up of P&G Vice Presidents and Directors.

The cross functional and multi-cultural composition of the team created many challenges, as did the scope and scale of the work, but the outcome was the successful delivery against all objectives. In the face of diverse cultural and functional differences, Heike forged a strong, highly motivated team that performed with great enthusiasm; and became the benchmark for continued expansion across the other regions.

I can recommend without hesitation Heike’s strengths in the end to end delivery of challenging corporate initiatives, particularly with regard to data standards, within a diverse and multi-cultural environment.

COMMITMENT | LEADERSHIP | COMMUNICATION

I worked with Heike Hartz on a strategic project for European Top Customers of a major consumer goods company.

The project involved Sales Managers from key European countries and had a challenging goal, of integrating and optimizing the process of collecting valuable customer sales data. The objective was to enable Regional and Local Sales Management to develop strategic sales plans.

Heike’s commitment and her sharp and effective leadership style were the key to our success. We successfully designed, built and ran a very effective project plan and delivered a unique product that allowed different countries to collect and analyze sales data effectively.

Heike has a unique and powerful way to build relationships and to motivate individuals as well as diverse, multi-cultural teams. Her exceptional communication skills enable her to reach her goals and desired results. I fully recommend Heike to companies wanting to increase business results and market share!
