Testimonials

“
Pamela (and her team at Eventful Innovations) is an extremely talented and organized event manager who has great perspective and capacity. She has recently coordinated a complex Gala with many components including fundraising elements, amateur boxing matches and live auctions, and did an excellent job. She was able to provide a meticulously detailed script and run of play, and kept the dιcor and other costs under budget, assisting with the hiring of sub-contractors and suppliers as well as dealing with the facility management team. We would highly recommend Pamela and Eventful Innovations.

Pamela is a pro at pulling together an event with minimal direction. She is very creative and budget-conscious when needs be. Her eye for all the small details meant we could just enjoy ourselves!

"Visionary", "leader", and "hard working" are words that come to mind when I think of Pamela Buck. She can take an idea and really bring it to life. The 2012 Nite of Hope North Shore event was a testament to that. What I also admire is her 360 approach to her work considering the needs and expectations of various stakeholders like the client, the guests and the sponsors. She has an easy going persona, balanced well with her focused and driven work ethic. She gets the job done and has a great attitude throughout the process. It is with pleasure that I recommend Pamela Buck for anyone looking for a dependable, results-oriented, solid event organizer.

Pamela was our Event Producer for the Association of Women in Finance Annual Gala of over 400 people - PEAK Awards. From the minute Pamela and her team came on board, I was confident that the event would be a success. She handled all the details of the day of, and worked with us on other strategy pieces. I particularly appreciated that she had a back-up plan for every possible unforeseen turn of events. Pam is extremely professional and practical. I enjoy her direct approach. I would recommend Pam's services to anyone that is looking to plan an event, big or small.

I have had the pleasure of working with Pamela when she served as Logistics and Volunteer Coordinator for the Nite of Hope North Shore event for the past two years. Her people skills and ability to work under pressure were really tested in the course of producing the events. She was well connected and brought many skills to the table which would otherwise have left the committee without solutions. She has done consulting for the Richmond Nite of Hope committee and has proved invaluable in assisting the implementation of that event also. I would highly recommend Pam for her capable and brilliantly competent management of events. She is a pleasure for all to work with!

Pam is a very experienced and professional event planner. She has volunteered her time to organize a community BBQ in North Vancouver for the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer. Each year, Pam has substantially increased the revenue which is a sign of the passion, energy, and creativity that she is putting into the event. More and more community groups have been engaged each year, allowing the event to grow and ensure sustainability into the future. We are very grateful for the work that Pam has put into making this event such a success!

Pamela at Eventful Innovations pulled together an amazing private fundraising event for The Smith Foundation, all within a very limited time frame.  Her attention to detail was most evident, and her design sensibility was terrific – a job well done!  We could not have done this without her, and we remain most grateful.

I had the pleasure of emceeing an event that Pamela had planned and coordinated. There were approximately 50 people in attendance who had each paid $500 to be there. Expectations were high! From start to finish, every detail had been attended to. Congratulations Pamela, you executed this event flawlessly.

I would highly recommend Pamela as a well organized, knowledgeable and efficient person who can plan and implement very successful events. Pamela provided great support and successful events for the Hastings North Community Partners Group (a group of non-profit community organizations) in our inaugural year. She has also enabled and assisted us in crafting a newsletter logo and branding for our group.

“
I hired Pamela to organize a networking event for 100 people as I have always found organizing these events very stressful and very time consuming. Pamela produced a first class event to rave reviews. She made it seem so effortless that I am now going to utilize her for every event I have over the next year. Pamela took a tired format and rejuvenated it for me to the point where instead of dreading putting together events, I am now proud to host them. Excellent work!

We have tried for years to organize events on our own. With so many other things to do it was difficult to give them our full attention while keeping the focus on our customers. It was refreshing to have a professional opinion that was not involved in the working of the business to keep things organized. Pamela came in and made us focus on what we wanted our objective to be. There is nothing more satisfying than working with someone who is so happy, helpful and entirely focused on our community.

Pamela was instrumental in the planning and execution of the 2008 Cops for Cancer Community BBQ. This annual event was planned on very little notice with great attention to detail and strong consideration for engaging the North Shore Community and neighbouring merchants.

In my role as chairman of the Mountie Slice Charity Golf Classic committee, I relied heavily on Pamela for her organizational abilities and attention to detail. One reason this event became the largest successful charity police golf tournament in the entire lower Mainland is due to Pamela’s tireless commitment to success.
