About the Author:

At an early age Shannon Kilkenny began what would become her career in event planning by gathering her neighborhood friends on a regular basis. Throughout high school and college she volunteered for committees and headed organizations allowing her to bring people together for a variety of reasons. Concurrently, she began a writing career with newsletters, articles, copy for marketing material, and later writing and editing guidebooks, user manuals, and how to books. These two careers continue in concert for more than 25 years. Her expertise and good humor created successful business relationships with clients in the banking industry, hospitality trade, educational and non-profit organizations, professional associations, athletic clubs and the environmental community. Having participated with these diverse groups, Ms. Kilkenny is familiar with multiple segments of the business and social world. With the writing and event planning skills strongly embedded and using her multilayered experiences, the book, Successful Event Planning, was born. She is currently teaching event planning classes, workshops and seminars, and doing public speaking. She developed a curriculum for all levels of commitment. She has mentored beginners through their first event and assisted seasoned professionals seeking new heights of proficiency. Her latest endeavor for event planning is to help the industry create new Environmental Standards. She is in the process of writing her next book dedicated to greening the hospitality and event planning business. In her leisure time you will find her in her garden, in her kayak, or in the clutches of a good book. Ms. Kilkenny lives by the ocean North of San Francisco.

Review:

A successful event or seminar takes a clear vision and an enormous amount of planning, details and follow up. Successful Event Planning is a valuable resource and a must have for any department or organization that puts on events or seminars regardless of size. --Karen R.
