“Whether you’re looking for help with communications or trying to pull off a seemingly impossible global project, Heidi Quante is the woman to get the job done. While working with 350.org, Heidi accomplished the miraculous, coordinating a global event with 16 giant climate-themed art pieces, each one large enough to be seen from space. From coordinating logistics with a satellite company, to roping in high-profile artists, to making sure our effort got covered in international media outlets, Heidi is the ultimate woman-of-all trades.”

Jamie Henn, Communication Director, 350.org

“Heidi brought great ideas, boundless energy, an expansive network and a can-do attitude to The Story of Stuff Project. Her work was invaluable in ensuring our films reached broad and diverse audiences, spreading our message and growing our community. Anytime someone asks me for a recommendation for someone to help them get their message out, I send them to Heidi.”

Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff

heidi-quante-artist“Heidi Quante is a powerhouse—full of energy, enthusiasm and passion. She professionally organized and curated a complicated and amazing art competition. The exhibition was a huge success. Heidi brilliantly used art as an educational tool to promote the significance of reuse and recycling. I was especially impressed with her ability to bring many stakeholders together, including arts professionals from the SFMOMA to recycling experts to collaborate on the project. She won me over with her dedication, her management and leadership skills and her passion for environmental stewardship. I would jump at the opportunity to work with her again knowing anything she touches will be a success.”
