What Clients Say

"Rosemarie recently presented to the Ohio Society of Association Executives' membership on the topic of "Accommodating People With Disabilities." Her presentation, which has to be transitioned from an in-person, face-to-face event to an online, virtual one was extremely captivating and highlighted countless obstacles that many meeting planners ignore when holding their events - some of them obvious and many not.

It was a pleasure for my team to work with Rosemarie, and she ensured that the participants in her learning session benefited from the engagement opportunities available through the online presentation medium. I would recommend her to others in the association industry and any other professional business sector."

Jarrod Clabaugh, CAE, President & CEO
Ohio Society of Association Executives

"We hired Rosemarie to speak at Northstar Meetings Group's Independent Planner Education Conference (IPEC) in January 2020. Her topic, 'Accommodating People with Disabilities at Meetings and Events' was highly-attended and extremely well-received.

The fact that she was presenting to 225 seasoned meeting planning professionals (both planners and suppliers/hoteliers) about a topic that is central and ever-changing in the hospitality industry made the presentation all the more relevant.

I, along with many other people that have been planning meetings for 15+ years, found Rosemarie's presentation eye-opening in terms of how we all need to do a much more comprehensive job of accommodating people with disabilities at our meetings/events.

Sharing her first-hand experience of what it is truly like to travel and attend meetings in a wheelchair was take-away information that I will be using (and staying abreast of) for the rest of my career.

On top of a stellar presentation, Rosemarie was a true pleasure to work with and I look forward to many more engagements with her!"
