We work closely with meeting planners to assure every event detail is covered, to support and facilitate a great, worry-free event. You can rely on our systems to assure the event goes smoothly, so you’re the hero! Having a successful event with no glitches is your goal—and ours. Here are the systems, checklists, and processes we use to coordinate with meeting planners.

Assure Your Business or Association Needs are Met

There’s nothing worse than hearing the speaker go off on a tangent, or miss the focus of your meeting. We assure that’s not going to happen.

Surveys with each association or company

Pre-conference written survey

We use specific surveys for each audience so we know market conditions, company values, and meeting planner goals. This assures the audience receives a presentation tailored just to them.

Pre-conference phone or online interview

Carla will set aside one hour (or more if needed) to speak with meeting planners and leadership, so they can address their needs.

Full Customization

With the results of the surveys, we customize every event, so it carries the focus and importance to deliver to each organization.
