As Watermark‘s vice president of Marketing and Events, I secured and delivered world-class speakers and programming – more than 60 events per year – for this Bay Area-based leadership organization. Our sold-out events featured speakers such as Daniel Pink, Sallie Krawcheck, Renee Mauborgne, Leila Janah, Deborah Tannen, Chris Voss, Joann Lublin, Kim Scott and Divorce Attorney to the Stars Laura Wasser. Along with delivering consistent communication and brand messaging, I tripled Watermark’s event net revenue and put specific, repeatable processes in place to support growth and scale.

The Result

My professional development programming helped Watermark members increase their communication, negotiation and other workplace skills, which they used to move up the career ladder. I also strengthened our engagement and relationships with our board members, sponsors, donors, event venues and the community at large.

Among the reviews

“I have been to numerous Watermark events and have always felt welcome – never having awkward moments where you don’t know anyone at first. There are always interesting conversations to join and interesting women to meet.”

– Jackie Kleinman, KB Financial Advisors
