CORPORATE EVENT PLANNING

Most companies today do not require a full time in-house event planner on staff.  Outsourcing your  occasional event planning needs to a professional can save your business THOUSANDS in time and resources.  Keep focused on your core business functions that you do best and leave your company holiday party planning, meetings, awards ceremonies, networking events, employee appreciation events and all other business events to a outsourced professional.  

I am proud to have been able to work with some of the BIGGEST names in the corporate business world.  Ask me for referrals and references! 

I work from my own home-office and provide all my own technologies.  I can travel to your office as needed for meetings and can do errands related to the event needs.   

All of my time is recorded IN DETAIL and I invoice at the end of the project for all expenses incurred with your approval in advance. 

Discounted rates MAY APPLY for long term corporate clients requiring regular services!


EVENT CONSULTING ONLY

Consulting is for individuals who need help getting started or who have hit a road-block in their event planning and just need that professional friend with the experience to call and ask questions to.  Consulting can be a one-time meeting or an on-going service via in person or phone call / Skype meetings.
