Clients I'm Seeking:


Busy professionals who plan meetings who find their time too valuable to engage in the nitty gritty research and negotiation required to secure hotel and non traditional meeting space, and who may also need require meeting registration services, destination management consultants or speciality event services.

About My Business:


I am your meeting research expert, partnering with you from concept through to completion on your meetings and events, by gaining a clear understanding of your purpose, your business objectives and how you will measure success at the end of your event. Success is never defined in terms of hotel nights and rates alone. I serve as council, advisor and expert on the big picture of your meeting. From careful analysis of previous contracts, old master bills, and the future success metrics of your meeting… I take your business needs and work with our supplier partners to help design agreements that deliver on those needs - on time and on budget. Use me for one project or as an ongoing extension of your team! + I help clients in major Fortune 500 companies globally plan their events... from Board Meetings to Annual Conferences. + As my client, you will on average, save up to 24% on your meetings. This isn't simply in the room rate alone. Many wasted budget dollars can be attributed to ineffective negotiation in the areas of food, beverage and AV. You get the advantage of my expertise, as well as that of my team... some of the most seasoned and experienced meeting professionals in the world. We have over 90 CMP's and CMM's on our staff. + My services are complimentary for my clients. I am President of the Chicago Chapter of Meeting Professionals International and have been on the Board of Directors for the past 6 years and am currently on MPI’s International Chapter Advisory Council for 2010-2011. I have recently been appointed to the MPI Foundation US Advisory Council for years 2011-2012. I am a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) through the Convention Industry Council and also hold my CMM (Certification in Meeting Management) accreditation.
