I have had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Jayko on numerous occasions in my hotel. Clients are comforted with Stephanie in charge. I also have the pleasure of sitting on an industry association board with Stephanie. Her enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to the live events industry is bar none. Ms. Jayko is thoughtful and weighs the outcome when presented with a series of choices. She is outstanding in the decisions she makes on behalf of her client as well as the success of all parties associated with the event. Stephanie is knowledgeable and confident. As we all know, live events can turn on a dime. It is how we as event professionals handle the pressure and reassure our customers that we shine. Stephanie Jayko is exemplary in her performance.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Stephanie on several events as the technical director/show caller. She carries a wonderful presence with her wherever she goes, is highly-poised under pressure and remains astutely professional. She’s consistently adaptable and hard-working, from nuts and bolts production to client relations. As a dedicated leader, organizer, and collaborator, Stephanie is a reliable talent I would trust with any event. I confidently recommend Stephanie as a true event professional.
