How it Works
Get started by answering a few questions and requesting a meeting. I’ll follow up within a few days to schedule our conversation. I might ask you additional questions, so you come prepared for our meeting.
Align your Goals
We’ll have an in-depth conversation about your event, goals, and dreams. I “get it” because I’m not just a speaker; I’m also an event producer. So I always ensure that my topic and presentation align with the needs of your audience.
Start Planning (without the stress)
Download my Media Kit for promoting your event and get my Welcome Guide with helpful info (wonder what’s the closest airport to me? Got you covered). Your job should be as effortless and stress-free as possible.
Even though we are both self-confessed foodies, we never thought about bringing that passion and enjoyment of food into our client meetings or events. Veronica’s ideas opened us to exploring the possibilities and positive impact that gathering around food could create for our business. Our beautiful, carefully prepared, and thoughtfully shared food has helped our clients build friendships and has made working with us even more enjoyable.

Gathering Strategy, Design & Production
Perfect for daring, colorful, and intelligent leaders and progressive companies who lead with generosity, strive to deliver meaning and authenticity, care for their audiences, and aren’t afraid to experiment.
Suitable for any intimate-to-less-so gatherings, from conferences to company events, offsites, retreats, and product launches seeking to create new stories of togetherness. Stories that nurture close human connections and build long-lasting relationships with teams and customers.
Anyone can gather people. But not everyone can do it well and effectively. Creating a gathering requires training your empathy muscle. What’s your audience expecting? How can you surprise them? How can you create a concept that aligns with your brand?
Sometimes you’re too close to your own work, and that’s when you know you should seek a helping hand.
I step in to help leaders and progressive companies design gatherings from strategy to concept, design, and production using my unique blend of food, design and hosting.
Questions we address:
- What the purpose of your gathering is, and why your purpose determines your format. (Sometimes, it’s worth going big with your lunch experience. Other times, a well-designed coffee break does a much better job).
- How to capture the sense of place and get inputs from the physical environment to inform the concept.
- How to craft a theme that brings your message to life over every surface, product, person, interaction, and point of contact.
- How to engage your guests and why hosting and facilitating is a form of leadership you should take on.
- What conversational starters, scripts, and tools pull your guests towards the topics that seize their time together.
- What type of gathering partners to seek for your gathering and how to vet them.
How it Works
Start your Project
Get started by answering a few questions and requesting a meeting. I’ll follow up in a few days to schedule our conversation. Have extra materials (such as photos or planimetry) to show me? Bring them to our meeting.
Get your Bespoke Plan
If we’re a fit, you’ll receive a proposal, timeline, and contract for the work. Then, once you sign it off and pay the deposit, you’ll receive my Welcome Guide. It explains everything you need to know, so you’re always in control.
See your Ideas Jazz Up
Here’s when the magic happens—your vision blossoms into a beautiful experience. Of course, there are a gazillion more steps (but, no need to know those now). You’ll sign off every phase so we won’t get to the design phase, and you’re unhappy with the concept.
For MELT we didn’t want the typical conference dinner, but a highly curated, communal experience—something unheard of in Estonia. Veronica not only helped us make a difference but a memorable success. She formed a clear vision for the project and energetically guided and motivated a large team of 20+ people. She was a pleasure to work with, and we couldn’t have been more satisfied with the result.
