“Whatever you’re thinking, think bigger” – Tony Hsieh
Keri spent her “freedom years” traveling the world with an over-stuffed backpack and an under-planned itinerary. Return tickets? Pfft. Maps? Pshaw. A schedule? Don’t even. Perhaps it’s not surprising that when Keri finally found her way home (via the four-and-a-half year, 18-country scenic route, natch) she pursued a career where unexpected experiences are not the obstacle to success—but the goal.
Keri graduated from Mount Royal University with a Certificate in Event Management, and fell in love with events while working with e=mc² events as a student. She worked her way from Contractor to Event Producer to Creative Director to Chief Creative Strategist, eventually becoming a partner. And not the silent kind either—she admits to going slightly “Monica” at her own events.
As Creative Strategist, Keri’s expertise lies in her ability to dig deep into you, your brand, your culture and your objectives to deliver your message and vision with whizbang! Her keen ability to inspire guests through human interaction combined with an intuitive sense of future trends and technologies has helped her and the team produce multiple award-winning events (43 to be exact). Her involvement with the International Live Events Association (ILEA) – both locally and Internationally, and participating and speaking at international conferences provide continuous inspiration as well as a great excuse to dust off the trusty backpack.
Day to day, Keri stimulates ideas with the team, cultivates “e”s enviable culture and lives for the “whizbang”—that explosive moment where she – and her clients – know they’ve really nailed it.
