We love our clients and we love getting client feedback (which we solicit from every client following each event).
Listen to what Anna McKeon from StartUp Health had to say about our collaboration in 2016 on the inaugural StartUp Health Festival in San Francisco. We recently completed our third conference with Startup Health in January 2018:
And what Kathi Lunardi from the U.S. ASEAN Business Council conference says about working with us:
I think we’re working on our fifth event using Anna Marie Events and here’s why. The AME team not only totally gets our company culture but they have this efficient event planning process which just makes every event so easy. And they’re so flexible when we need to change something and are great to work with. No stress. Now that’s saying something!Giselle Bonilla | Head of Workplace Operations, NerdWallet
At my former firm, Anna was the person responsible for organizing our annual investor meetings, holiday parties and team events. The annual investor meetings were among the best I have ever attended. These two-day events, which included meals, cocktail parties, informational events and guest speakers, were extremely well organized and always creative. Anna ran the events and managed her team of assistants in a way that ensured that all the guests felt welcome, well-informed and well taken care. Due to Anna’s hard work and high standards, the events always came off to perfection and we always received very strong feedback from our clients. Anna is a unique and talented individual with the dedication and organizational capabilities of a drill sergeant and the creativity and touch of an artist (which in fact she is). Without a doubt, these attributes in Anna drove the success of all of our company’s events.Jeffrey M. Giller | Partner, Stepstone Group Real Estate
I absolutely love working with Anna. We’ve used her services on multiple events- from multiple “all hands” meetings to a company summer picnic event last summer with 1,200+ attendees.
I’d say her forte is providing excellent staff that are extremely professional and have hospitality nailed- they make your attendees feel special! A weakness- that’s a tough one. I honestly have nothing I’d do differently with her. We planned a huge children’s relay race last summer with a multi-step, goofy way of completing an obstacle course. We found that most of our young attendees were too young to follow the directions, but she & her staff reacted quickly to this and hosted a spontaneous and then ongoing watergun fight in its place- which the kids loved! I’m so glad that they were able to react quickly and not let our methodically planned out obstacle course fail.
Anna’s got a tremendous eye for detail and she was great about walking through contracts with me and offering suggestions that would improve the contracts- truly, I have no reservations about her and hire her as often as my budget allows!Shannon Yadon-Fong | Event / Workspace Services Manager, Shutterfly Inc.
“Our second Spigit Ignite conference with Anna Marie Events was even more successful than the previous year’s event. Much of that credit goes to Anna Marie Events. The detailed planning, on site attention to detail and team coordination and follow- through made the entire process, pre to post event, incredibly seamless. We’re already working together on our event strategy for 2019 and we’ll be tapping into the team’s creativity for that, too. Job well done!”Nicola Frazer-Reid | VP Marketing, Spigit, San Francisco, CA
“Anna helped us create a fun and meaningful event for our staff where our goal was to show them how much we appreciated all their hard work. Anna found not only the right venue in Sonoma, but crafted an entire itinerary that made our team feel pampered and gave everyone the opportunity to relax together. Anna was also mindful of our budget and was able to get her vendors to stretch so as to make the event super fun without breaking the bank. We love Anna Marie Events and would highly recommend her and her team!”Annie Manfredi | CEO, RealtyCom Partners
