The Creative Mind behind the Brand
I am a Texas Based wife and mother of a set of Twins. A dedicated Event Planner with over 10 years’ experience. An energetic multi-talented Entrepreneur with strength in flexibility and organization.
I graduated in 2004 with a BSc in Business Administration, I attended the Business Training Institute in 2015 for Certified Event Management Expert (CEME), I am currently attaining my Advanced Diploma in Special Event Planning and Design from North American Academy of Wedding & Event Planning. I have also attended Several Wedding and Event Management Conferences and Workshop. A Current Member of International Live Events Association (ILEA).
How it all began
I discovered my passion for planning special events in 2007 when I worked with a Travel and Tour Management Company as the Event Coordinator for US Commercial Trade Shows and Expos in Nigeria to the United States, This was anchored by the US Commercial Service, U.S Embassy & Consulate in Nigeria, there I facilitated and planned up to 10 trade shows annually for over 50 Company CEO’s and Top Managers from different career field to attend several conferences in the US. This Tradeshows includes International Franchise Expo, IFMA World Workplace, International Workboat Show, Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) and many more..
I believe in my strong passion to help people design and customize their event with lasting memories.
In 2011, I decided to turn my hobby into a Business, so with my husband’s support we registered my Event Management Company Named Steady Point Concept.
In 2012, I and my family relocated from Nigeria to the United States of America.
What sets me apart is my resilient and commitment to live this dream in me, I am a person who believes so much in perseverance. I have since then been spending majority of my adult life developing skills and education that transcend to producing successful and memorable events. My past working experiences in various position as a Graphic Designer, Administrative Lead, Event Coordinator, Travel & Tour Consultant, Project Coordinator and Customer Service Rep. have increased the versatile nature in me and made me a multi skilled individual. With my 3 Major relocation within 4 years (2012-2015) from Lagos, Nigeria to Souderton, Pennsylvania and now to Austin, Texas, I have learned to adapt to new surroundings and the importance of knowing cultural differences for my events, I know how to nurture old and new relationships while making tough decisions with a subtle heart. My Cultural background and Multicultural Experience has brought out the resilient, creative, evolutionary and formative being in me. All of these qualities positively reflect my cordial interaction with my clients, their vendors and stakeholders in a creative manner.
Other things I love to do
I love children and enjoy mentoring them and providing as much support as I can within my capability to help them grow, Since 2016, I have been a mentor with Seedling, A Non-profit organization that provides mentoring Programs for children with incarcerated and deported parents. Planting hope in the hearts of children is my simple way of giving back to my community and fulfilling my dreams.
I cannot resist to tell you how much I love to Dance, When planning my Events, I often use my Choreographic skill to direct various elements and weave them together in harmonious symphony, This is what makes my Event successful.
