For over 30 years, Lisa Gareau has created effective connection strategies and provided creative event support for a variety of businesses and community organizations – large and small – across Canada and around the world.
When founding Candy Event Consulting in 2008, Lisa Gareau began her work life’s work of supporting event planners by “Making Their Teams Stronger”.
Since then it has been her joy to empower in-house and do-it-yourself event planners to plan events that better express the purpose of their businesses, organizations, or groups.
Together with her hand-picked, diverse team of pros, Lisa supports Candy clients with deep-dive event strategy sessions, end-to-end event planning and promotion services, and a welcoming place to grow a strong network of planning peers through interactive workshops and group masterminds.
A natural mentor with years of event planning joys and hard knocks, Lisa continues to share her lessons learned by creating and publishing Moments Magazine – Event Planning Ideas + Inspiration, instructing students in the Event Management Program at Mount Royal University, and speaking to business and community groups as an event industry expert.
Lisa loves living near the Canadian Rockies in Calgary, Alberta – a favourite family playground.
Yes! Help Me Make my Team Stronger!
