Karine Brighten Events, Berkeley, California
San Francisco Bay Area's first Green-Certified event service specialist. Top event planners like Karine Brighten know that today's successful events demand fresh, relevant, and innovative ideas.
Holding a professional event for your nonprofit organization or corporate convention must compete with celebrity event budgets. And some events are more than a celebration. You may be trying to raise money, promote a new product or gain publicity at a grand opening. Each of these has an expected ROI. Many shy away from hiring an event planner, however, as a way to keep costs down.
Karine Brighten has years of formal training and experience working at JPDL (Canada's top event planning company) which laid a solid foundation for what came next. When she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area several years ago and started Karine Brighten Events, her solid track record followed.
Here are the "must haves" for each one of their successful events:
Make it awesome. Your reputation's at stake. People will be talking, texting, and spreading social media chatter about your nonprofit fundraiser, charity ball, social party, concert, film screening, trade show, grand opening . . . they want you to get a bazillion "likes" after it's over.
Keep your mind free from brainspin trying to find the best event vendors, venues, and entertainment. Time is a terrible thing to waste, especially when it's time you don't have (and it's yours).
Make it a green event. A sustainable event creates good karma and makes your organization look like a rock star to your employees, your friends, your community, and your shareholders. It shows you really care about your environmental footprint!
Keep it on budget. Better yet, keep it under budget.
