81: Creating a Cozy Courtship with Your Clients, with Alisha Chadee

Alisha Chadee is the co-owner of Events by Whim Event Planning in Toronto Ontario, and she comes on the show today to talk about how to make your clients feel like they’re the only ones you’re working with.  It takes strategic time management and boundaries, and Alisha gives some amazing tips!

At the top of the show, you heard host Megan Gillikin mention that she will be speaking at WIPA Toronto on October 22nd!  Get your tickets at Eventbrite now.  This session will remind and enlighten industry vendors that the client experience starts way before the client books you and ends months after the event is over. Broken into three sections (pre-booking, working together, and post booking phases), Megan will highlight some of biggest missed opportunities when it comes elevating your client experience from start to finish and will provide tangible tips and takeaways on how to streamline this experience and exceed client expectations time and time again!!

About Alisha Chadee (and if you listen to the show, you’ll know where she got this wonderful bio from):

Alisha has a project management background in learning and development, plus 5+ years of experience coordinating corporate events and the director of education for WIPA Toronto. She’s developed a proven planning process for couples who want to know how to create magic on their wedding day. (But not throw money off yachts like they’re in a rap music video.) She thinks in floor plans, endorses moving if you find a spider in your house, and has an oyster obsession.
