EXPERIENCE, A GREAT ATTITUDE, AND CUSTOMIZED SERVICE

 

Over the 23+ years I’ve been working in corporate events, I have worn many hats. My experience allows me to offer a variety of services which can be tailored in scope to your project, budget, and needs. Click on the links below for specifics about each service:

Executive Event Producer
Event Producer
Project Manager
Stage Manager
Floor Manager

 

EXECUTIVE EVENT PRODUCER
Large scale events, often multiple keynote speeches, celebrity talent, and working with a creative agency.

Pre-production Services: participation in core team strategy and planning meetings, pulling together and managing a production team to meet the event objectives and creative vision. Management of the budget, stage design, media playback, onsite schedules, and all production elements.

Onsite Services: management of onsite schedules, staging set up, technical rehearsals, executive rehearsals – all with client involvement. 

EVENT PRODUCER
Medium to large scale events, often a single keynote speech, with or without celebrity talent and/or a creative agency.

Pre-production Services: Similar to my Executive Producer services, but on a smaller scale, my services can include participation in core team strategy and planning meetings, pulling together and managing a production team to meet the event objectives and creative vision, management of the budget, stage design, media playback, onsite schedules, showflow documentation and all production elements. If there is not a creative agency involved, I often work with the client to help develop show flow and get content produced for the live presentation.

I also project manage event-based marcom projects such as kiosk development and deployment.
Services: content development and budget, production and installation management.
