Planning an event, whether big or small, can be a rather daunting task, especially when event planning is not part of one’s area of expertise. However, when approached methodically and thoughtfully, the event planning process can be quite seamless.

In the webinar, Natalie Trento (C’07) of Natalie Trento Events will provide tips on how to plan a successful event. Trento will review all aspects of the planning process, specifically addressing timelines, budgets, working with vendors, and creating contracts.

After graduating from Georgetown University in 2007, Natalie Trento first gained event planning experience at Brides Magazine where she had the privilege of working with incredible brands such as DeBeers, Pronovias, and Sylvia Weinstock Cakes to create fun-filled parties for Brides readers.

In 2011, Natalie was hired by Fete, one of the premier event design firms in the country, to coordinate one-of-a-kind weddings, parties, and corporate events for high-end clientele.
