Afton Koutzun

Event Manager

2014 Planner of the Year, MPI: Greater Calgary Chapter

Afton’s formula for success

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you’ll be a success.” – Albert Schweitzer 

NUMBER OF TIMES SHE

TALKS TO HERSELF IN A DAY

Lovingly nicknamed “Crafty Afty” in the office, Afton is your go-to Event Manager when you need something artfully created. Afton first began working with “e” as an Event Coordinator, and is now one of our beloved Event Managers. She is passionate about connecting with clients and building her relationship with them year after year. Should they ever happen to require a choreographed dance routine or musical number, they’d be doubly in luck. Afton is a musical theatre junkie and trained dancer who still teaches in order to stay connected to her oldest and dearest passion. But be warned, her enthusiasm cannot always be contained to the studio – she has been spotted busting a move in the produce aisle from time to time. 

 

Afton holds a Staging and Interior Re-Design Diploma, a Floral Certificate and an Event Management Certificate, so she is well equipped to stage any size or style of event her clients might desire. Afton is seriously detail oriented, she has an eye for design and can visualize the flow of a room and the strategy on floor plan layout. She has a passion for choreographing stage shows in terms of timing and takes pride in her ability to draw and hold the attention of the guest to what matters.
