I hired preferred promotional talent Group to staff a booth at a trade show. Sondra Irwin of promotalent provided several portofilios of model who would be available to work the event.
Sondra provided photos / images that were mis-leading. They were all airbushed images. The models she provided were professional strippers and presented themselves as such, most importanly they could not stay away from the bar. Sondra's deceptive practice cost me money as business professionals who attended the event only remember such a image of my company. These people only use the trade show to generate after hour business for themselves.
Beware of the deceptive mis-leading practice.

#1 General Comment

Years of excellence

AUTHOR: J Howard - ()

At no time has the Preferred Promotional Model and Talent Group been anything but professional.

Like any modeling agency, PPG works with people, deadlines, logistics, and clients, working very hard to ensure quality in the models' performance as well as fair treatment and professionalism by all.

With over 20 years of experience working some of the biggest names in business, PPG has etched their name in the world of trade show and exhibit models with class and professionalism.

The Web site is packed with excellent information and model-supplied images of models span the entire U.S. and parts of Canada and recently into France.

The quality of the models are supported by the testimonials of the clients.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

False Claim

AUTHOR: PPG Talent Group - ()

PPG Talent has never and will never hire strippers.  We have always had professional models who have degrees and most 

of our clients request business attire.  I'm sure this client was just not satisfied with this particular model and instead of calling and asking for another model, they continued to keep her at their booth.  If they were not happy the client would have called and asked for a replacement. 

We never air brush pictures, too much time being nationwide to even think about that.  We have over 23 years booking talent and never once have we booked a stripper or air brushed pictures.

I'm sorry the client feels this way, however, these comments are not true.

Thank you.

Sondra Irwin

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Preferred Promotional is a Reputable Agency

AUTHOR: Preferred Promotional Group Sets th - (United States of America)

The report that was made against Preferred Promotioanl Talent agency is false reports.  PPG talent doesn't even know this Michelle who wrote the article.  Michelle didn't provide the company name and  there was no identification to that accusation, and there is a possibility that Michelle accused the wrong talent agency because of our sterling record for 20 years.

PPG Talent only hires the most professional talent and models with proof on our website blogs of many

positive comments from Clients and Talent. 

PPG is very upset that someone would write this type of article.  We have never hired strippers or bar girls.

Most of our talent are college educated with many experienced years working tradeshows.

I have listed several positive repeat clients below about PPG and you can see for yourself that we offer the most professional agency in the nation with over 19 years experience:

Hi Sondra, 

I wanted to just say "Thanks" for all you do to promote my skills to potential clients.

As you know I have worked alot of trade shows, and there are alot of agencies out there that just really don't care about placing the right talent with the right client. You always recognize where our skills and our professionalism lie, and you always treat your talent with respect. What clients probably don't know, is that the agent not only has to have the "eye" when it comes to recruiting strong talent, but they also must treat them well, if they want the agency to continue to keep the "best" talent in the industry. PPG always books the best venues for us to shine, and makes us feel good about what we do. I am glad to ba a part of an agency that 

allows me to do what I love!

Thanks for the booking, Sondra!

I'm working

the LA Auto Show and your name came up today at the booth!

We all think you

are one of the nicest agents out there!

Have a great




I wanted to drop a note from the VM World show last week in Las Vegas. I found you to be every bit as professional, polished, and well spoken as we expected you to be. The level of enthusiasm and professionalism combined with a strong positive attitude you have really made a difference at the show. I asked you to start recruiting for us to give the other sponsors a chance for an audience and you were able to fill it almost every time. I was amazed when the powerpoint went down you didnt miss a beat and completed the presentation.

s**+ will be delivering the VM World show again next year and youve already made the list. You were much more polished than most of our sales force and many noticed it.

My sincere thanks and I look forward to working with you again,


Jim Sheridan

#4 UPDATE Employee

me too!

AUTHOR: Tracy - (United States of America)

I worked for Sondra Irwin for CES, recently and she refuses to pay me.  I was one of the models who worked the show.  What was the outcome of your case?  This woman is not who she appears to be.   It was very disappointing.
