Feedback from some of our clients

It was a pleasure to work with Sparkwood Events on our recent virtual ACE event, which provided recognition to MCAWW instructors and students. Our planning window was very tight, but Jackie and her team produced a timeline and were well prepared for execution. Our planning committee appreciated being able to meet weekly with the Sparkwood team.

The event involved a pre-function concert, social time in breakout/game rooms for approximately 100 families, as well as an awards presentation. Our members greatly appreciated being able to connect during the social time and loved the games. Jackie has excellent resources and the event production was perfect. Additionally, the event kits were a huge hit and really made everyone feel included and excited for the event.

I highly recommend Sparkwood Events; we could not have pulled off our event without them, much less made it the huge success that it was.

Jackie and the Sparkwood Events team bring to bear a wealth of conference planning creativity and experience. Their support of all phases of planning and execution of our inaugural national COSM Technology Summit was invaluable.  We could not have done it without them and are delighted to team them again for COSM 2020.

I have worked with Jackie on a number of different projects, and she always does a spectacular job. I have witnessed her expertly managing relationships, expectations, and details, while always delivering results that were above and beyond. Not only is her work excellent, but she approaches difficult and stressful situations with a sense of humor and a can-do attitude that make her a pleasure to work with.

Jackie is a phenomenal meeting and event planner. She brings a unique combination of strategic thinking and detailed execution to her work. She listens to her client carefully to understand the objective of the event, the budget and the success criteria (raise funds, raise awareness, entertain, celebrate, etc.). She is very creative and innovative and has a great network to tap into for various event related services. She identifies options that meet the client’s needs and guides them through an informed decision-making process. Throughout the process, she keeps her clients informed and when new information is presented, she works with you to incorporate, revise and adjust as needed. She has planned multiple events for me and my team and we are extremely happy with the results. We have had large business meetings in interesting locations with creative additions to keep folks engaged and interested (and well fed) while attending to the business objectives at hand. She has also planned multiple social outings and celebrations that have delighted a diverse group of employees, ensuring all had a great experience. We look forward to working with Jackie on our next event.
