Jamie Richardson – President
Throughout Jamie’s career in live event staging and the audio visual industry, one constant has always been present: Creating Experiences. Whether it is a beautifully lit opera duet, an awards gala or a visit by the President of the United States, he knows that experience is paramount to the success of any event.
After completing a BFA in Theatre Production and 5 years as a theatre designer, Jamie accepted his first position in corporate events in 1996…and has never looked back.
Leveraging a strong technical skillset, a passion for event design and two decades in corporate events, Jamie creates memorable experiences for audiences, planners and presenters alike. Always keen to understand the event’s purpose and goals first, he consults on and designs the best live event technology solutions available and is integral the success of any event team.
Kimberly Beaune CMP, CSEP, Immediate Past-President
Kimberly is an accomplished industry professional with over 20 years’ experience in special events. Beginning her career in hotel sales, she quickly fell in love with the magic of event design and went on to explore that passion through senior roles in off-site catering and then as Senior Planner for a Toronto DMC. While building her foundation in events, she also began to create and produce independent theatre projects and design sets and costumes for her award winning theatre company Keystone Theatre.
As her worlds of events and theatre began to blend, a passion for telling stories through design and event animation grew, so Kimberly left the DMC world and joined one of Canada’s most prestigious décor and design firms. It was there that she honed her design aesthetic, leading the concept, creation and design on hundreds of unique projects from tradeshow booths to nationally televised awards galas.
Now as an entrepreneur running her own event production and design firm she is helping clients and organizations bring their event visions to life…with her own Creative Twist.
