Happy Fairy Godmother Friday!
On Friday’s we like to share personal stories about our team. Today’s post gives you some insight to how Fairy Godmother began.
Exactly 5 years ago I was the 2009 Conference Chair for the Bakersfield Women’s Business Conference.
It was the single biggest event I had ever planned in my life. An event with over 1400 women. I had the most amazing board and we had a blast. We made so many changes, we changed the colors, the web-site, the logo, how we did the lunches, the way we fundraised, we updated all of our committees, created a logo shirt and brought in wonderful sponsors like Flourishing Art and Free Style Entertainment. From this conference I had several people tell me I should really start an event company. I thought about it for the next 4-5 months, did my homework and we did our first wedding in January 2010.
Our little company has grown, we now do day-of Wedding Coordinating, Wedding Planning and Event Planning. Our team has grown from 1 Event Planner to a team of 10 we have 1 in Redding and 1 in San Diego.
The conference Thursday was amazing, we sold out! I had the pleasure of being the Keynote Chair for the conference this year. Lynda Resnick, is so professional and such a powerful women. Giuliana Rancic was warm, kind, genuine, sweet and so easy to work with. She loved Bakersfield; she couldn’t believe how nice people were to her. Robin Mangarin-Scott had us all crying with her powerful message.
The conference will forever have a powerful place in my heart because it gave me Fairy Godmother!
I am so proud of my friend Deanna Blaise our 2013 Chair!
Thank you to everyone that attended, we are looking forward to next year!
