Why hire an event planner?
I've been planning events my whole life and have been doing so professionally for the past nine years. My experience has taught me that creativity and vision are important aspects of a successful event but they mean nothing if not implemented by an organized planner who makes the entire process a success.
My experience brings a mix of customer service, high level project management skills and an eye for beauty and detail. My work at Etsy has added an additional layer of whimsy and mindfulness to my repertoire, bringing to light the value of engaging small/local businesses when implementing event strategies and utilizing sustainable methods. Seven years of event planning for the non-profit sector has instilled in me the skills to keep costs low while having a very positive return on investment. Need more reasons?
- Cost savings: While you may only plan one or a few events throughout the year, event planners are consistently working with vendors and venues to plan dozens of events annually. By working with a planner, you can benefit from the relationships they've built and cost savings that accrue from those relationships.
- Strategy mapping: If you're looking to attract customers through an event, or have another goal in mind, event planners understand how to develop strategies to map back to those goals. From promotions to ticketing to programming, we're skilled at ensuring no moment is wasted or unorganized.
- Trendsetting: We have our pulse on what's new whether it's the latest floral fad for weddings or check-in technology at a ticketed event. Make your event one that people are talking about.
