    My name is Jami Johnson, owner of Bella Events, LLC. I serve small companies and entrepreneurs with full-service retreat planning, consulting, and coaching needs. Whether it is done-for-you or done-with-you retreat planning, Bella Events IS your go-to. Bella Events has planned over 60 events since 2016, ranging from government meetings across the lower 48 states with the Federation of Tax Administrators to luxury corporate retreats in Costa Rica and Turks & Caicos for The Honey Pot Company. I have experience planning team, company-wide, c-suite, and community retreat experiences and can accommodate your company retreat needs. I use CVENT and Group360 to source all meetings above 10 people and have 7 years of experience with RFP creation and contract negotiations on behalf of clients for their meetings. I tend to save my clients anywhere from 10%-30% of their budget through contract negotiation and experience. The most I have saved a client was $26,000 (33% of their budget) on one retreat. Working with my team you get: • The perfect location for your group including hotel sourcing and contract negotiation • Chef and meal selection that accommodates nutritional restrictions • Immersive Activities tailored to the goals of the event • Pre-event preparation and post-event clean-up so you don’t have to (upon request for onsite support) • Itinerary creator and a timeline manager to make sure everything is smooth • Budget and pricing strategy so every dollar is working for you • Insurance experience and selection to protect your community and your assets • Health and safety with covid protocols to remove the guesswork of keeping your guests safe • Scheduled weekly or bi-weekly progress meetings for planning progress and transparency I am your person for a FUN and immersive experience in the best location. I look forward to connecting to see how Bella Events can help you with your next retreat!

    If we haven't met yet, let me start by introducing myself! I'm Julia Burks, a community-driven program coordinator, event planner, and nonprofit fundraiser based in Cincinnati, Ohio. I love building relationships through authentic conversations and active listening. Supporting my local community has always been a core belief of mine since I was young. In the past few years, I've had the privilege and honor to work with a variety of local nonprofits with local, national, and international impact. In my spare time, you can find me recruiting, training, and building partner, vendor, and artist relationships for my entrepreneurial startup, Passion Productions, a local alternative art & dance troupe. As a co-founder, I realized there was a need in Cincinnati to have a group that promotes a safe environment for showcasing diversity in art, dance, movement, body positivity, inclusivity, and self expression. Thus, my troupe was born. We are operating on year 7 and the past few shows have sold out. I am always brainstorming an additional side-hustle and am currently looking to start a few new projects in the near future.
