Public Speaking Testimonials
I wanted to say how great it was to have Heather present to the Colorado Springs Pikes Peak Triathlon club. The meeting was very imformative and a whole lot of fun. Heather did a great job sharing her story. It was motivating to hear her story and to be inspired to push our own training a bit harder. Our club was very appreciative of Heather and the time she spent with everyone. She was a great encouragement to our members and everyone had a memorable evening. Heather has a very positive presentation style and is very engaging and it was a treat to have her talk with our tri club. I’m hoping that when she is in town she will once again bless us with her presence. It was an awesome night and a true pleasure !

I had the pleasure and honor of scheduling 5 time Ironman Champion, Heather Gollnick, to speak on behalf of Las Vegas Cyclery. Heather graciously agreed to speak just a few days before the epic Leadman 125 Triathlon in Las Vegas. I know how hectic it can be, preparing for a race, travel, adjusting to a different time zone, and still being focused on having the best race possible. Heather proceeded with the grace and sparkle of a true Champion. She spoke to a group of over 20 triathletes, and made it a point to make each and every one feel like a long lost friend. Heather has the dynamic and gracious personality that one can only wish for.
I met Heather in March of 2004, right before the start of my first triathlon. I remember she took the time to talk with me, and calm my many fears as a new triathlete. It’s so refreshing to see that Heather has remained that same gracious and humble Champion that I remembered from 8 years ago. It truly was a pleasure to host such an amazing person and triathlete !
