As we quickly approach the beginning of the 2017 event season, my travel quickly starts to increase, which requires lots of time in airports, hotels and on planes. Inevitably, maybe because of my size, people always want to know, “what do you do?” Most I think are expecting me to say I play for a NBA Team or the Seattle Seahawks, but what I tell them is my company produces special events for some of the biggest most impactful non-profits in our country. Our 80+ full time staff spread from Boston to Tampa, Seattle to San Diego with all points in between, and produce everything from multi-day walks and rides to 5K walk/runs and a mud obstacle fun run.
The biggest next question is, “so what exactly does that mean?” (Maybe I should re-work my elevator pitch!) My team helped me provide that answer with an impressive infographic that sums up what we did in 2016
at Event 360.
As you can see, we have been busy. Most importantly this team of dedicated professionals are never content; we want more. We need more. We have more to offer. Be it marketing campaigns, communications strategy, participant support, IT support, volunteer management, event planning and execution or event concept development… we are ready to update this graph next year with numbers twice as big.
There is work to be done. Let’s get to work.
As one of the co-founders, Tim Brockman brings more than 20 years in the event operations industry to Event 360 and in addition to leading the team that has planned and executed some of the country’s most successful fundraising events, he has managed events for international performing artists including Phil Collins, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne and Genesis. Tim’s skills and experience make him uniquely qualified to provide executive level oversight to the aspects of event fundraising that are critically important, but that live behind the scenes. With his teams, Tim has personally managed the operations, finances, risk management and logistics for hundreds of large-scale events. He has a keen eye for detail and a sixth-sense for quality control. The front end and back end planning and implementation of every project we do must meet his demanding criteria.
