What do you get when you mix a love of details and planning, 14 years of charitable events experience, and a pathological need to make EVERYTHING more beautiful?
You get Events by Francesca, of course!
I learned the power of events to connect people very early in my career.
I was coordinating a focus group about early childhood education for some high-level donors at the home of a Board member. Quite out of the blue, one of the participants mentioned how he was working to bring a dear friend of his to Seattle for an event centered around the importance of kindness and compassion. When he named his friend, everyone in the room sprang into action (after a moment of stunned silence).
A year later, his dear friend, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, was addressing a rapt audience (that included me!) in CenturyLink Field. Most of the backers of his visit were either in that focus group, or directly connected to it.
Since then, I've planned and coordinated events in Seattle and Bellevue at venues like the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, SODO Park, the Showbox SoDo, the Westin Seattle, and in private homes across the Puget Sound region. I love the adventure of getting to know my clients and their wants and needs, and even more, I love when I can deliver a day that makes them amazingly happy.
My duties have included everything from managing day-of-event logistics to folding napkins into swans. I specialize in coordinating chaos while maintaining a calm, cheerful presence.
I want your next event to be special, unique, and FUN! Let's talk about how we can make that happen.
