Meeting Planner Chris Gorrell brings over a decade of experience planning and implementing large and small meetings, conferences, training workshops, award programs, and product launches. Her broad-reaching experience encompasses virtually all aspects of meeting and event execution, including budget development, site and venue selection, contract negotiations, air and ground transportation, housing, audio visual, meal and menu planning, as well as event theming, décor, and entertainment.
Chris started her career at a leading contract pharmaceutical and healthcare R&D entity, where she planned and executed meetings and events for top-tier pharmaceutical firms.
While obsessed with details and often accused of being a perfectionist, Chris easily develops relationships with her clients, colleagues and vendors through her wit and humor, common sense and professionalism. Her experience and flexibility allows her to relate to her clients’ needs and maintain a clear understanding of their vision and event objectives, from detailed planning through successful execution. With exceptional organization and multi-tasking abilities, Chris maintains the exemplary service, attention to detail, and client-first philosophy that has afforded S&D Productions the well-earned industry recognition and respect throughout the years.
