HEAR WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

Julie John of Be Inspired Events provided excellent support to us in organizing the 2019 BC Studies Conference at Thompson Rivers University. We were very grateful for her help in designing the program and the promotional material, and appreciated her professionalism and her attention to detail in arranging various conference events. She helped to make the conference special in many ways, including by personally preparing over 100 sage pouches as gifts for attendees. We would definitely recommend Julie to others who are in need of event planning and assistance – you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you, Julie, It was a pleasure working with you! You really set up a great experience for the participants and helped make my role easier (she is a facilitator). The organization, venue, and food were amazing! Everyone was so helpful and thoughtful and I”m so appreciative of the experience. Hopefully, our paths cross again. Take care, Katie.
