hey there, I’m Melanie

You’re in the right place if you’re ready to invest in yourself and build the event planning business of your dreams!  
 

I’M ALL ABOUT HELPING EVENT PLANNERS START AND BUILD THEIR OWN EVENT BUSINESS, REALIZE YOUR TRUE CAPABILITIES, AND ATTRACT THE RIGHT CLIENTS, SO YOU GO FROM GETTING YOUR FIRST THREE PAYING CLIENTS TO BEING BOOKED OUT FOR THE NEXT YEAR.

Today, I’m a tired mom of one awesome kid and I’m honored to help thousands of event planners through our online courses get those “where the heck are they” clients and realize the business of your dreams. 

Originally a small-town girl with a zest for big lights and lots of action, I wanted nothing more than to bring people together and get paid to plan events.

I believe that being an event planner should be easy and fun. It should leave you feeling great about yourself, your skills, and your future.

Through our courses,  students from around the world have accomplished their dreams, have more freedom, and do what you’re passionate about – planning events.

Before I dive into my story, you may want to join our community. I’ll send you free tips that you can use immediately. Delivered right to your inbox (you can opt-out anytime).

Here's my story.

Event Management Course

 

In 2004, I started my corporate event planning business and in 2013 Event Planning Blueprint and our signature online courses were born…

 

In 2004, I launched my own event business from my kitchen table because I knew I couldn’t ignore the passion I had for planning events and bringing people together.

 

I knew making a name for myself in the industry would be tough, especially since I had no connections, no website and only a stack of business cards to get me started…

Event

And pretty soon I was planning fundraisers, corporate events and large festivals with over 30,000 attendees and working with brands like Honda, Young Entrepreneurs’ Association and HGTV.

 

I’ve even had the honor of planning celebrity events for TV personalities and Hollywood actors including Mike Holmes, Rob Rainford and Shaun Majumder.

Your Success

At Event Planning Blueprint™ we’ll teach you how to make progress and achieve results so you’re succeeding in the event planning industry.

I’ve run events for everyone from large national festivals, such as Junofest and Grey Cup Festival to celebrity clients in Hollywood and the NHL to events with global brands including Honda, CanWest Global Communications, The National post, HGTV, and Young presidents’ Organization.

I’ve also gained invaluable experience at Strategic Coach, where I worked closely with high income entrepreneurs to help them achieve greater success in their business.

And as a result of my diverse skills, I’ve been a guest speaker on-air and online, as well as a regular contributor and event expert for About.com and Eventbrite UK (to name a few).

If you’re lacking consistency in your event bookings, feeling overwhelmed or frustrated with the state of your business, and like possibilities seem out of reach, I’ll walk with you down the path to build a consistently profitable business – and have fun in the process.

I’ve travelled the world planning events and bringing people together – from local fundraisers to Fortune 500 promotional events – I’ve seen and done it all. And now, I want to help you do the same.
