While working on many events Deany discovered that the most important factor was not only to host a good event but to make sure events are actually hitting business objectives. This led her to start the new company Executive Events which works with you to be clear on your event objectives and put metrics in place to maximize ROI. Executive Events will work with you on any aspect of your event no matter how big or small. From internal events that work to overcome psychological barriers that hinder internal communication to conferences that establish you as an expert in your industry, Deany and Executive Events would love to work with your team to accomplish your goals.
