  • About Amber Hurdle Consulting

    At Amber Hurdle Consulting we are employer brand architects who help companies become an employer of choice that attracts and retains top talent, and we are personal brand builders who help leaders become more influential and drive results. Business brands are also launched, strengthened or rebranded by our talented and outcome-driven team, thanks to our clients who trust our holistic (and award-winning) approach to branding. 

    We offer keynote speaking, consulting, in-person and virtual training, group and individual coaching…or for many, a combination of all of that.

    Book a complimentary strategy call if you desire to amplify your influence and ability to attract and retain both talent and customers. (Hint: if you don’t see value in focusing on both, we’ll save you a call…you are not a fit for us!)

  • About Amber Hurdle


  • Amber Erickson-Hurdle helps professionals connect the combined value of personal brands, employer brands and business brands to increase market share and profitability, reduce turnover, and amplify satisfaction among customers and employees alike.  She personally understands what it takes to accelerate success as a former teen mom who evolved into a powerhouse business woman, having worked with international celebrities and Fortune 100 companies alike. 

    Described as a,“talented and creative executive that helped create a compelling internal public relations strategy to keep the spirits of 3000 Gaylord Opryland Hotel employees high after the unprecedented Nashville flood,” Amber quickly developed a far reaching campaign that served as the rallying point to achieve Opryland’s new and urgent business objectives. After leading the internal rebrand when Marriott acquired the iconic hotel and its attractions, Amber continued her enthusiasm for internal relations by launching her own consulting firm, serving large brands such as FedEx Ground, Loews Hotels, and Stella & Dot, as well as small to medium-sized businesses who want to play big. 

    She is a featured expert in an upper-division college public relations textbook and has been covered in Entrepreneur Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, and beyond. As the author of The Bombshell Businesswoman and host of The Bombshell Business Podcast, Amber offers a sub brand to empower and educate women specifically, while serving everyone through her coaching and consulting. 

    Amber was recognized by Global Gurus for being among the top 30 brand professionals 2020-2022, ranking #8 in the world for 2022. She’s also been among the Nashville Business Journal’s “Top 40 Under 40,” and won one of the highly competitive Nashville Area Chamber’s Nashville Emerging Leader Awards (NELA) as the winner in the Business Services category.

    As a professional speaker, consultant, author and podcast host, Amber “the Velvet Machete” Hurdle content-rich experiences that energize leaders to boldly live their organization’s culture, attract top talent, next-level their employee engagement and create raving fans among their customers.
