What are people saying about coaching with Annette?
"She gave us the real deal inside scoop on what to do, how to do it, and when to do it!"
"Last fall I enrolled in NYU’s Meetings and Convention Planning Diploma Program. Annette was the instructor for the Event Operations and Production course. I admired her from day one. I was immediately drawn to her energy and charisma. Her lessons were candid. She gave us the real deal inside scoop on what to do, how to do it, and when to get it done. I learned so much from her experiences and her infamous stories. She had a way of letting you know the worst that can happen but assuring you that it won’t because now you know better! Most people will shy away from giving you the ingredients to their secret sauce, but not Annette. She was always willing to share and assist you in any way because she wanted to see you succeed. I am beyond thankful that life allowed our paths to cross. It was truly a pleasure to learn from her. I wouldn’t trade her for anyone else! ~ Andrea Dasent, A Jay Event Productions
"She guided me from start to finish."
“When I decided to change my career to do something that I was thinking about doing for many years and something I truly loved, I didn't know where to start. I knew I wanted to be an event planner and designer, and I was talented but I was lacking the business knowledge and the processes. That's when I turned to Annette for guidance and coaching. It was the best investment. She guided me from start to finish. If you're looking for someone to give you one on one coaching,100% attention to you, and help you achieve your business goals, Annette is the right person. Her knowledge, experience, and wonderful demeanor is invaluable!” ~ Gilda Suncar Babau, Gilded Grace Events

Annette is extremely organized and comes with over 30 years of expertise and knowledge, a highly sought after individual in her profession. Her ability to adapt the program to my needs showed how versed she is in her work. Through Annette and her coaching program, I would learn about useful tools and practical tips to grow my business." ~ Victoria Pazmany, Belle Events & Co
"She gave me tons of tips and tricks...and held me accountable."
"Working with Annette and her coaching business was so amazing for me because there were so many minor details of running an events business I could have never researched enough to find. She gave me tons of tips and tricks and the overall most important factor for me was having someone to hold me accountable for the action steps I created! ~ Arielle Levav Thomas, All Time High Events
