When you succeed, we succeed.
“We have hosted the Freeman Charity Golf Classic for 9 years now, and J Shea has been our planner for the past three. What a difference it makes to have Jessica and her team involved in our tournament. Since hiring Jessica our sponsorship dollars and registered golfers have increased and most importantly so has our charitable donations. Being in the events industry I understand the time and effort it takes to produce a successful event and Jessica has it down to a science. Their attention to detail is extremely comforting when it comes to hosting a tournament. What I appreciate most is that she and her team don’t think of this as just another golf tournament, rather they work to provide a memorable experience for Freeman, our sponsors and our guests.”
“Our organization was seeking a creative, experienced guide who could help us take a successful annual fundraising event to the next level. Jessica had a proven process that brought together a variety of stakeholders for brainstorming and discovery. We’ve charted a new course forward and are looking forward to continuing our work with J Shea to make the new vision a reality.”
“Thank you for all your help! You were wonderful and you executed everything we imagined! Thank you!”
“The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) had a completely excellent experience working with Jessica Shea & Associates during our 50th Anniversary Gala.
From start to stop, J Shea was seamless, elegant, and spectacular! At the conclusion of the event, we actually found ourselves saddened that our special working relationship with them had drawn to a close, which says something special about the special magic they bring to the table. We heartily endorse and recommend!”
“J Shea provided outstanding event planning and onsite services, and met all of my expectations (and then some). Their ideas were fresh and they thought of everything it took to execute a successful staff function.”
“Planning a 400 person event using a combination of staff and volunteer support requires creativity, skill and patience. J Shea demonstrated these traits as her team managed CoSN’s 2016 ‘Monumental Impact’ Advocacy Dinner and Auction in the District of Columbia. Jessica’s team was particularly effective at streamlining the operational process thus allowing us to maximize attendance while minimizing food costs and wait times related to check in for the event.
Some of these changes were substantive changes to the operating procedure while others resulted from the use of a simple mobile application. Most importantly, she was effective in leading both staff and volunteers through this process.
Not surprisingly, the J Shea team will be moving forward with us as we plan another successful event in Chicago in 2017.”
“The services our team received from J Shea to execute a successful sales mission were professional and creative. We were looking for new ways to reinvent our mission and the ideas and support they provided were exceptional. We look forward to partnering with them again for future events of various sizes!”
“Travel Alberta has worked with J Shea for over 3 years and had great success in planning and organizing our USA sales missions and key account client events throughout the USA. They have made things so simple through their attention to detail, unique event theme ideas, and understanding our goals and objectives for our events.
Having J Shea organize all of the details lets our business development team focus on their role of bringing the right customers to the events, networking, and building successful relationships.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Jessica on specialized sales event (food truck) promoting our destinations. Jessica was great to work with and the event was executed very well. Her presence gave me great peace of mind and allowed me to focus on what I need to do – sell. I am excited to be working with her again, and I am already excited by some of the unique ideas and suggestions she has brought to the table.”
“We turned to J Shea for their help with our 29th Annual Montgomery College Foundation Golf and Tennis Classic at Woodmont Country Club and we are very happy that we did. Jessica and her team are a pleasure to work with – very professional and a wealth of ideas. They are very communicative and their turn around was always very quick. We enjoyed working with them, as did our vendors. Things went so well that we already booked them for next year’s golf tournament!”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with J Shea for 3 years on the PCMA Visionary Awards, specifically the Style Lounge and After Party. They continually elevate the level of sophistication in each event component, bring enthusiasm and creative ideas to the process, and have a passion for excellence.
Jessica is a strategic and talented professional, someone you definitely want on your event team.”
“Faced with declining attendance and revenues the two 30 year old ASAE golf tournaments were on life support. With proposals from many high profile event planners, I turned to veteran planner, Jessica Shea to manage the details and aggressive revitalization plans. Not only did she orchestrate our team of 27 staff and volunteers, she led both events to sold out status with a waiting list of sponsors. This unprecedented growth was rated 4.67 by our attendees out of a possible 5! To sum it up: she is good people and very insightful. Having her on the team allows me to focus on other things. She is a breath of fresh air and can keep up with creativity and expensive tastes all within budget.”
“Jessica Shea has created the perfect organization, a mix between an excellent appreciation for style and creativity, blended with a perfect balance of logistical effeciency and endless diligence. I have had the pleasure of experiencing many J Shea events, but most recently I asked Jessica to plan and execute my charitable golf event from the ground up.
From the beginning Jessica was committed to my cause as if it were her own. No idea was off the table. She was creative and fun with activities for our golfers. She was also budget conscious and had many great ideas on cutting costs where needed. The talents at J Shea are vast yet practical. They have a very confident yet calming approach to managing the event the day of, which in turn is very calming to us as the client.
When you work with J Shea, expect a “big time” event that will allow your guests to enjoy all of the bells and whistles they are hoping for. They are committed to their clients, have a strong dedication to detail, and a passion for creating memorable events.”
“Jessica and her team truly understand what it takes to coordinate and produce a world class golf event. We played in the ASAE Foundation Golf Classic which must have had well over 150 golfers and our team could not believe how seamless everything went with that amount of players. Our team had to make a last minute change and Jessica went above and beyond in accommodating me due to my lack of proper planning. J Shea is simply the best in the business!”
“We had our hands full trying to set up the inaugural AJ Janosko Golf Classic until Jessica got involved. Shortly into the first meeting with her I knew Jessica was the right person to plan this emotional event as we discussed the complete tournament timeline, outline, and objectives.
Her enthusiasm and structured, detailed-oriented approach to planning and execution achieve an efficient, smooth, and well-run golf tournament that is fun for all. We could not have had the hugely successful inaugural event without Jessica and her team.
Because of that success people are talking about and already looking forward to next year’s event. I would not plan and execute a golf event like this one without Jessica leading the way!”
“We had the pleasure of working with J Shea to facilitate the planning of our Pest Management Foundation Gala at the Newseum in February 2019. Jessica’s professionalism and expertise in planning events was apparent and she showed a strong understanding of our budget and expectations for the event. They not only surpassed our expectations, we received rave reviews on the event from the participants and plan to host it again in 2021. Jessica not only understands well the process of planning an event, but also has an amazing eye for styling an event and making it unique and memorable.”
“J Shea has been a pleasure to work with. We used them for a conference that had always been managed in house and then had grown larger than what my staff could handle. I was thrilled to be able to work with them as they always kept me informed of where they were with projects and handled each task with very professionally. They took the time to negotiate costs down and made sure that all of the Foundation’s needs were met.
After this experience, we will never go back to in house planning. It not only saved use time but also money and made our 400 person conference the best that we had in our twelve years of running conferences. The feedback we received from attendees was incredible and I credit that with Jessica Shea and her firm. They made sure that the event ran smoothly.”
“You’ve probably heard from others, but I just wanted to let you know that we had a great event, and our PAC committee and members were so impressed. Thank you for all your hard work. And, your team was fantastic!!”
“We have used J Shea for a few events now and she’s not only been consistent, but innovative in her thought process and a great support to our events. In fact, with her help we just executed on of our most successful client events today!
If you’re looking for someone to assist you with the planning and implementation of your meeting and or event, I would highly recommend J Shea.”
“The J Shea team attentively listened throughout the planning process to best tailor the event to our vision, with a focus on both budget and creative design. We had a very short timeframe to bring our fundraising vision to life and J Shea executed a magical evening that surpassed all of our expectations.”
“The J Shea team did a phenomenal job elevating our annual fundraising event. Their meticulous planning, flawless execution, and fresh ideas made our signature event the best one yet. We’re grateful for their energy and expertise – and would highly recommend them to other nonprofits looking to take their event to the next level.”
