Here at Event Specialists, we’re lucky to be led by our fearless founder Mahogany Jones, named 2021 Canadian Event Planner of the Year and 2021/2022 Top 100 Most Influential Meeting Planner, who, from about the young age of thirteen, has been designing and executing successful events, meetings, experiences, and fundraisers. From her first paid job in events – a 12-hour relay that raised almost a million dollars! – to the present day, Mahoganey Jones (and by extension this team that she has created) is driven to work with clients who have a strong “why”. 


This is especially true when it comes to producing corporate events. Strong corporate culture translates into the production of strong corporate events. Here at Event Specialists, we believe that at heart, corporate culture is the innate ability to bring the community together. When corporations facilitate a shared language and common values, they empower each and every member of their team to experience belonging. At its best, corporate culture empowers everyone to do their best work and grow within the company.


As event experience designers, we work with corporate clients like the ones we describe above (and yes…they do exist and we love working with them!), our job is to extend their corporate goals and the goals of their personnel. There is no challenge we relish more than trying to read between the lines and translate the essence and “why” of a corporate culture into every detail of the event we design for and with them. 


As experienced corporate event planners, we exist to help you execute a corporate event, we are simply increasing your internal capacity to make this event a success. We function like an extension of your in-house team. We will do as much or as little as you would like us to do. We can either design or manage the event from start to finish or simply serve as an extra set of hands to “fill in the gaps.”


At the end of the day, our major piece of advice to both prospective and current corporate clients is this: “Be sure to treat your own internal team as stakeholders as well. Your team is at the heart of what you do. Be sure to celebrate them just as much as you would an external stakeholder.”
