We have worked with just about every agency in the country, but I have never dealt with a shop as 'customer satisfaction' oriented as yours. You should be very proud of your team. It's the best I've ever seen.

- Celebrity Focus
Don and Ellen Walker and their extraordinary team at HWA have represented me for my Speaking Engagements for over a decade. HWA is the best. They have always demonstrated unmatched professionalism and unsurpassed excellence. Knowing that HWA is in my corner has given me the freedom to spend most of my time on the work of the Clinton Foundation.

- Bill Clinton
Your attention to detail and prompt response to all issues of concern was incredible. Because of the excellent service you have provided to us, we have strongly recommended The Harry Walker Agency to several other organizations.

- Regent University
The strength of the Harry Walker Agency is not only Don Walker who is the senior expert in the entire field but his excellent staff. The entire company is more than first rate.

- Michael Eisner
It has been a pleasure working with you. We couldn't have been more pleased with the level of professionalism of all the staff at the Harry Walker Agency, and look forward to working with you again.

- Nevada Policy Research Institute
"Don Walker and his outstanding team exemplify a tradition of dependability, excellence, integrity, and attention to detail. They are easy to work with and exhibit great communication and organization. Hands-on from start to finish, the Harry Walker Agency works with host and speaker to ensure a flawless event. As I travel from one event to another, one thing is certain: I'm in good hands with HWA."
