Systematically establishing procedures and methodologies to track event objectives for stakeholders and compliance groups. While working closely with marketing and brand loyalty departments, I created an event networking team to gather vital requirements/results during events.
Moreover, I was responsible for managing all logistics and inventory of training and event assets program-wide. In addition to venue management, I negotiated vendor and venue contracts, and when essential I guided new vendors through the corporate preferred vendor process. In closing, I reconciled post-event budgets and interdepartmental cost center transfers and coordinated post-event surveys.
Producing countless dynamic events and trade shows using exciting and creative venues has earned me the privilege of serving distinguished clients of Royal lineage, tech start-ups, silicon valley giant Samsung, health care conglomerate Kaiser Permanente and others. I have orchestrated and hosted more than 30 corporate events with an excess of 2000 attendees per event per year. Many of which included national or international group travel.
