I recently moved to Los Angeles from Brazil where I had an established business and an extensive client list. Despite my 10 years of experience in large social galas and corporate events it was very difficult to connect directly to event production agencies. I was luckily introduced to The Eventwork and within days I had multiple job opportunities. One of the opportunities included an agency looking for a LA based producer who spoke Portuguese to help in a multi-city series launch including São Paulo, Brazil. The Eventwork connected me and because of my expertise planning events in Brazil I was a perfect match. I consider myself very lucky to have been introduced to The Eventwork. I could not have established myself and made these connections so quickly without them. It’s already proven to be an effective networking tool for our event freelance clan!
I joined The EventWork early on because I believe that as freelancers, we need a forum that houses reputable companies to work for, as well as vetted freelancers to hire. The EventWork delivers on this idea and puts it all in one place. I can focus on my current projects without worrying about what or when my next gig will be.
“I was connected to The EventWork through a mutual friend. One of their clients was looking for an LA-based producer with connections to Mexico City. They easily made the connection between myself and the agency. The team was awesome and the entire process was seamless and stress free. If you're a freelance producer, I highly recommend using TEW!”
Quickly after setting up my profile on The EventWork, I was contacted by an LA-based event agency that needed a day-of planner for a Chicago corporate holiday party. The process from there was easy and I was able to book the program & move into the planning phase quickly.
I have never been so happily employed! The phone interview with Noha was very comfortable as if I had met her before, despite being thousands of miles apart. The speedy process from discovery to hire was efficient yet detailed. I was then happily connected to a freelance opportunity turned full-time position that I enjoy beyond measure! Thank you, The EventWork, for connecting individuals within our unique universe of events.
My main event producer was unexpectedly out on an emergency for two large upcoming events. I was buried in emails, phone calls and two challenging clients and I reached out to The EventWork. They suggested a perfect solution with a producer who could jump in head first and become my right hand for the two events. She had experience at a high level and was very professional with me and my clients. She delivered everything I requested on time and with extreme detail. My clients were both very happy and never really felt the transition. This made me look great to them and I loved meeting a new fabulous producer as well. We will work together again on a few more projects this year!
We were introduced to The EventWork when we were in need of a freelancer to fulfill a position on one of our high profile events last minute. Due to the nature of the event, we wanted to make sure we were hiring someone trustworthy and professional. The EventWork made it quick and seamless to find someone who was available and had been previously vetted. They took all the legwork out of the search process, and enabled us to focus on our job rather than scramble and put out feelers to our colleagues. We were very happy with the result and would definitely use their services again for future projects.
"It seemed simple enough. I needed a long term contract event producer so I placed an ad on an online job site. For the next week, my inbox was flooded with resumes most of whom weren’t local or qualified. It took so much time to wade through all of the submissions and figure out who to interview. Then I was introduced to The EventWork and everything changed. Noha listened to what I needed and came back with a tight list of qualified, available and professional candidates. She even spoke to each person and only sent me those that she felt fit my criteria. This personal vetting allowed me to schedule two interviews and hire the perfect person. I feel so lucky to have found my current employee as she brings skills and talents that are exactly what my company and clients need. I am forever grateful and will refer others to The EventWork."
The EventWork has helped us find the perfect fit for staffing. From specific position needs to language requirements, to all around killer producers, The EventWork has helped us fill challenging positions fast time and time again.
