Welcome to the Event Certificate!

I'm Jody-Ann, the Event-preneur Launch Expert behind this company. 

Founder and CEO of the Event Certificate, I'm an Event Planner & Consultant with over 10 years experience in the industry. I'm also a tech nerd, systems strategist, Canva addict and travel enthusiast.

I work with Event Planners looking to build, launch and grow their event planning business. So they can book more clients and have a successful business.

I would love to tell you that I've had an easy journey and discovered my passion for entrepreneurship at a lemonade stand when I was 7 years old, but I would be lying. Here's how it really happened:

  • This comprehensive package will provide you with the tools and templates you need to efficiently manage the day to day operations of running an event planning business.

Before I started planning events for major clients, I use to plan events for friends and family for free. I was excited about event planning and eager to get started in the industry, however I did not know where to begin. I had graduated from university with a shiny new degree in Economics and no idea what to do with it. After searching tirelessly for a job that was appealing to me I finally accepted a job in administration at a major university to fill my time.

It was here that I accidentally fell into a job as an in-house event planner. Though I loved my new job, I always knew in my heart I wanted to do more. So I started to work on my event planning business part-time on evenings and weekends. But this time around instead of focusing on events for family and friends, I began tirelessly marketing my services to other clients and what a difference this change made!

I love event planning because of the creativity of the profession, the flexibility and freedom of running your own event planning business, all while doing something you're passionate about.
