Brooklyn Cartwright – Independent Franchise Owner/Operator at EventPrep

It was never really a question of whether or not it was going to happen,
it was how I was going to make it happen.

Brooklyn Cartwright is an independent EventPrep franchise owner. Prior to becoming a franchisee, Brooklyn worked as a D-1 Collegiate Women’s Basketball Coach for seven years. She retains a strong interest in basketball, and continues to coach teams in her spare time, but when Brooklyn realized her love of planning wasn’t limited to collegiate basketball, she allowed her skills to blossom as an entrepreneur. As an EventPrep franchise owner, Brooklyn leverages existing relationships with brands and venues for events of any size, while aiding her clients in selecting the best cities and most appropriate venues for their needs. She lines up food and drink for meetings, facilitates audiovisual needs, builds your event website, handles your registration needs, finds and books speakers and presenters, and arranges transportation and hotel stays, all while managing your budget. Brooklyn utilizes her ambition, leadership skills, and masterful time management abilities to make event planning and meeting coordination a simple and seamless product for her clients.

Randy Grieser – CEO, Author, Speaker at ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance, Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute

The bad news is most cultures aren’t healthy, what we would
rather have are people who feel that they are needed in a
culture called mediocrity.

Randy Grieser created the Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute (CTRI) in 2007, when he observed a need for in-person training workshops to anticipate and help people manage trauma and tragedies that occur within institutions and their people. CTRI quickly expanded its materials and workshops to enable ideal management of various situations that people and organizations struggle to navigate appropriately. Before long, Randy founded ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance to offer workshops and training programs with a focus on leadership and other management tasks. Between these two organizations, Randy is the CEO of two of the most preeminent providers of professional development training on the market. Randy is the author of The Ordinary Leader: 10 Key Insights for Building and Leading a Thriving Organization, and co-author of The Culture Question: How to Create a Workplace Where People Like to Work. Through his workshops and presentations, and within his books, Randy shares a vision of the world where people genuinely enjoy going to work. He trains and encourages people towards collaborative management, effective conflict resolution, and spectacularly clear, helpful communication for the betterment of all.
