I was impressed by the team's flexibility in overcoming unforeseen barriers and achieving results that went above my initial expectations. Even under duress, their cool-headedness and collected demeanor eased our concerns. It was evident how committed they were to make sure that every aspect—including the venue preparation—was carried out perfectly.

Ms. Williams has established an incredible network of resources and was able to accomplish the most complex of tasks, often in a limited timeframe. Her team is truly incredible , and their overall dedication is commendable.

We presented Ms. Williams with our concept, she listened, brought back ideas, received our feedback, generated more ideas, accepted our tweaks, and created an event that was beyond anything we could have imagined or envisioned. No detail was left unturned and our guests remarked that it was the “event of the year".

When Ergo — a New York-based firm — decided to host a conference in Columbus, Ohio on four months’ notice, we knew we needed someone on the ground with a wealth of experience, strong connections, and absolute professionalism. That combination of traits is exactly what Lucretia and WillaMarie bring to the table every day. DEP worked with us on an extremely tight timeline to secure a world-class venue that fit our needs exactly and brought in premier local vendors. As our vision for the conference evolved, Lucretia and WillaMarie exhibited tremendous patience, adaptability, and responsiveness.

Throughout the planning process, Distinct Event Planning provided guidance and coordinated a multitude of tasks against an expedited 4-month timeline. Leading up to the big day, Distinct Event Planning helped Omega CDC identify and secure vendors for all necessary components, in addition to visioning and designing stellar décor about which people across the community are still raving. On the day of the Hope Rising Gala, the Distinct Event Planning team worked extremely hard to ensure that the event was managed without a hitch. Due to a thorough plan for the event and volunteer coordination, we were able to focus on hosting our attendees and celebrating our success.
