TESTIMONIALS

 
I recommended Emily to our client, The Culinary Institute of America at Copia, to produce an influencer’s event for part of their grand opening weekend. I knew she would handle every detail, and had every confidence she would not only get the right people to attend, but that they’d produce fantastic content. The client was thrilled with not only the caliber of Emily’s work throughout the process, but the resulting blog and social media coverage, as well. Emily is very connected in the hospitality and lifestyle industry, and is an expert in event planning, marketing and social media. She’s a delight to work with, and I look forward to doing so again soon!

Emily did a fantastic job training our marketing staff in social media management. Our company was looking for new ideas in this area and needed an outsider to analyze what we do. Emily did a full audit of our social media activity, presented her recommendations, and produced a training book on ways to maximize our exposure and participation in this space.

I would recommend Emily as a consultant to all businesses, especially ones needing social media expertise!

Emily is a magician! We wanted to drive awareness of our new microbrewery that had just opened in San Francisco, and Emily came highly recommended from a friend and investor. Emily envisioned exactly how the night would come together, she dove into her deep rolodex, and managed to get an incredible group of bloggers to join us for 3+ hours. She managed the event flow, all the logistics, and best of all, she gave us many many pointers on how to improve both the event, and our business overall, the result was a hugely successful event, with thousands and thousands of people being introduced to our brand, and, as the cherry on top, we even got coverage in SF Weekly! A HUGE thank you to Emily for doing this soup to nuts.
