Gloria has gathered the umpteen moving parts of planning and delivering critical business events and engineered them into a blueprint for your organization to perform as a well-oiled machine. Clear, concise, and uncompromisingly complete, Gloria’s book,The Art of Professional Connections: Event Strategies for Successful Business Entertaining, patiently guides readers through every crucial aspect of creating a successful event. From considering the purpose, to creating a theme, to all the meticulous logistics, to post-event strategies, Gloria has crafted a chapter to cover each detail. Laid out in an easy-to-use format, including comprehensive checklists, readers can choose to examine the entire process or dive directly into the aspect of events that interests them most. I only wish this book was available when my teams hosted Hollywood celebrities, presidents and royalty. Everyone involved in organizing events could use this supporting guide for the essential details, keeping in mind Gloria’s point: the goal of any event is to create a memorable experience that demonstrates appreciation, builds goodwill and loyalty, and treats each participant like the royalty they are to your organization.
