And here’s my big news…

October 12, 2011

I’ve been teasing for a while that I have some BIG news coming and it’s time to share more about what I’m doing. I’m very excited to announce that I’m starting an event production house with my business partner, Janetti Chon, who I deeply respect and admire as an event professional. Check out our new venture:

Golightly House

Professional experiences with a personal touch.

As Janetti and I had lunch together almost a month ago, we talked about what we were passionate about both in work and in life and it just clicked. We needed to not only work together, but PARTNER together to join forces to create and produce events.

It’s been a fast and furious four weeks, which should not surprise you at all if you know Janetti or me. We have a website, are getting our business needs squared away and are lining up clients. I’ve always thought about starting my own company; it just never felt like the timing was right…until now!

So what do we do? EVERYTHING! We can manage, produce, design and create strategy for a variety of events ranging from conferences, C-suite summits, offsite employee retreats, themed dinners and creative corporate events. Want to work with us? Email hello [at] golightlyhouse [dot] comΒ to tell us more!
