Welcome Planner, We’ve Been Saving You a Seat!



Thank you for visiting us!

But the truth is this is YOUR place, YOUR community, and YOUR chance to be inspired, informed, and get connected with in-house and do-it-yourself event planners just like you!

My vision for Candy Event Consulting – and Candy Academy – began as I saw a growing need for event planning strategy, services, and support for volunteers, not-for-profit leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, fundraisers, administrative pros, or marketing leads that would say to me, “I’m not an event planner, but . . .”. Then they would go on to describe everything an “event planner” would do but were hesitant – and even a little embarrassed – to embrace the term.

Along with other parts of you job – sometimes from the side of your desk – you are planning and promoting events for your business, organization, or group.

Let me tell you once and for all … you ARE an event planner. And our team is here to help make you – and your planning team – stronger. 

You know face to face events help you gain more customers, connect effectively with donors, reach out to your community, motivate your staff, or inspire your volunteer teams. The challenge? You may not know exactly how to plan in the most effective, efficient, and affordable way.

If that sounds like you, be assured I understand your challenges. In-fact I’ve faced many of them myself over my 30 years of planning … I’ve been in your shoes! Together with my Candy Team, I am ready to come alongside you in the nitty-gritty of your event planning and promotion efforts to help you meet your goals and to become a more purposeful planner.

Planning events and promoting events might be a necessary part of your job – but I also believe it can also be done in a fun, energizing, and effective way.

I would welcome you to join The Candy Event Community and experience a new ease in your planning and success in your efforts. If you are wondering where to start, we’re just a phone call away with our Connection Strategy Coaching Call. That’s one full hour focused on you and your goals! 

Wherever you start, know we will be with you on your planning journey, guiding you every step of the way.
