Currently, I am hired to assist in various capacities, becoming an "extension of the current team" to provide guidance, help, and support. Depending on the needs, I have produced the entire event from concept to completion or taken on a specific role, such as venue and supplier sourcing, pre-production, onsite management, registration, volunteer/staff coordination, food and beverage/menu planning, BEO review/guarantees, budget, budgets, budgeting, ancillary and team building programming, offsite excursions and events, transportation, unique experiences, onsite staffing, support services, hospitality manager, onsite manager, tradeshow/booth staff, sponsorship sales, create sponsor prospectus and packages, sales, product launch, multi city tours, sport events (the big game, golf tournaments, etc.) hotel and travel bookings, operations, scheduling, destination management, grand openings, community events, galas, reception, customer events, VIP or unique experience events, team/staff training, etc. I am delighted to take on any role and have been responsible for producing or supporting over 600 events ranging from intimate in size and scope (5 people) to over 10,000+ attendees.

    Hi! I've been a personal travel planner for the past 7 years helping clients from all over the world creating unforgettable travel memories. As a travel planner I don't work on a commission based model but I suggest any type of accommodation/activities that suit your needs and budget. You'll, however, benefit from my years of expertise and some perks I get as an established travel planner. COVID: For me, it's so much more than just booking trips for you. I serve as an advocate for you as a traveler when your booking has to be amended, when flights are delayed - and when pandemics break out 🙊 Now, more than ever, when travel is in a constant state of change, it’s important to have someone on your side. I aim to establish a personal and transparent relationship with each client to understand your needs fully. HOW IT WORKS: During my initial research I’ll give you several accommodation and activity options, all of which are personally selected for you and your party. You'll decide where to stay and what to do. I’ll make the necessary reservations accordingly. I'll also give suggestions on what to do/see in each place, restaurant recommendations and general information (currency, visa, time zone, how to get to the airport, how to move around, etc). You'll get the final itinerary in a nicely and structured day-to-day itinerary (online + pdf). EXPERIENCE: I've worked closely with many families, couples, and single travelers planning their trips. I've planned long-term trips (like a family traveling around the world for one year), company retreats, weekend getaways, etc. COMPANY TRAVEL: Are you a company looking for a spectacular venue for your next event or do you need professional help to organise your company retreat? I'll handle all the logistics and/or design a personalised retreat that fits your budget.

Below are some ways which I can assist your organization in reaching it's goals - I look forward to working with you soon! Prospect & Grant Research: Review of prospects and detailed descriptions of prospective donors. Including researching grants your organization is eligible for, organizing the needed data to create the grant, writing the grant in a compelling and articulate way and providing deliverable outcomes to report to foundations. Marketing & Promotion: Design campaign strategies (either one time, ongoing or capital), provide creative writing, design outline & copy for annual appeal letters/postcards/ emails; social media content. I will assist you in developing a holistic strategy that includes email, newsletters, social media and traditional mailings. Data Management & Online Platforms: System review for best options; donor segmentation and targeting; tagging; form building; etc. Some of the systems I am an expert in include: Raiser's Edge, Salesforce, eTapestry, Fundly, Reeher, Little Green Light, CommunityFunded, SchoolAuction, Infoview, Banner and others. Development Strategy & Operations: I will work with you to plan strategies for short or long term development plans - this can be a one year plan or up to a 5 year plan - and then implement the plan for positive results; review of gift processing, tracking, data management, donor stewardship & cultivation; review of development operations. The plans I create are holistic in approach and utilize the latest best practices in fund development, including multi-channel outreach spanning digital platforms and traditional methods. Donor Engagement & Stewardship: Creating engaging stewardship pieces that show appreciation for donors at all levels. We will assess together whom your audience is and I can assist in segmenting and targeting your message to meet your donor needs. During the past decade, I have raised over $11.5 M by using an array of strategies and tools. I have been able to secure major donations, increase new donors by 20%, create a retention rate increase of 12%, increased donations by up to 26% within a 7 month time frame, increase Giving Day initiatives by $100,000+ in one year, marketed events in a way which they sold out for the first time ever, design engagement and stewardship opportunities that kept donors coming back and overall team building among development staff to ensure a motivated and empowered team. The above skill sets have helped me time and again to climb over different fundraising mountains and see success at the top. Now, I wish to help guide your organization as you grow and see as much success as I have the past 7 years. I'm here bring my experience and tools as we take on these challenges together, with my goal to help you successfully raise the funds you need. I am pleased to be starting this new journey with you as your fundraising guide while we work together to continue your mission. Let's get started!

How to Hire Top Event Planners

How to hire event planners

From concerts to speeches to benefit dinners, there’s a lot of coordination and planning that goes into hosting a major event. An event planner can help reduce the administrative overhead of planning an event.

So how do you hire event planners? What follows are some tips for finding top event planners on Upwork.

How to shortlist event planning professionals

As you’re browsing available event planning consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the contractors you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Event type. Whether it’s a dinner, a lecture, or a concert, you want an event planner who is familiar with the logistics of putting on your particular type of event.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., building hype for an event through social media).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular event planner.

How to write an effective event planning job post

With a clear picture of your ideal event planner in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective event planning job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From catering to publicity, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries, software, or marketing channels, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

Why hire event planners?

The trick to finding top event planners is to identify your needs. Are you looking for a contractor to handle the logistics of sending out invitations and booking a venue? Do you also require event-specific expertise such as coordinating sound and video coverage for a concert? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire an event planner?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced event planner may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their event planning services more competitively.

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
