We Believe

Executive Director,
Life Recovery Association

Patricia Driessen of Perfect Sense Events has served in the capacity of an Events’ Coordinator for L.I.F.E. Recovery Association for several fundraising GALAs and excessed expectations on all accounts. The organizing committee(s), made up of volunteers & board, have had wonderful experiences’ under Patricia’s leadership. She keeps meetings productive and well organized; everyone’s input is respected & honoured and consensus decision-making is the rule not the exception. The events have been very well received, supporters come back, year after year, and the organization continues to be blessed by her guidance & advice. Her follow up is equally as professional, timely & thorough with complete spreadsheets of all accounts, tracking of income/expenditures & summary documents/visuals! Patricia is easy to talk to, positive & simply a “joy” to work with. On behalf of the L.I.F.E. Board & myself, we highly recommend her for any organizing function or fundraising event!

Director of Advancement,
Abbotsford Christian School

I had the pleasure of working with Patricia on a key stakeholder-engagement event which allowed us to share our “Learning Revolution message” with the broader business community. Patricia was definitely “all in” on pulling together the logistics for this banquet event and professionally orchestrated a thousand and one details on “the day we brought Sir Ken Robinson to town”. By pulling off a successful event we were also able increase connections to the cause of our capital campaign. Very happy to recommend Patricia to any organization looking to knock one outta the park as we did together. If we were to plan another significant event in the future it would make Perfect Sense to call on Patricia again.

She managed the greeting, attendance and weekly program speaker reminders, She provided event tech support for presenters, as well as the corresponding reports of those weekly activities to the Board. Duties included quarterly invoicing of members, and recording the minutes of monthly Board meetings. Patricia’s attention to detail, her experience in special event management and vast community network added value to the board and membership when planning special and social events.

Founder,
Valley Wedding Solutions

I have had the pleasure of working with Patricia organizing Valley Wedding Solution’s Third Annual Wedding Show… She was extremely efficient, personable and creative. Having great initiative, she sought out what needed to be done, and did it with skill and efficiency. Patricia would be an asset to anyone seeking someone to coordinate any event, large or small.

Patricia’s services as an event planner exceeded my expectations. She publicized my event and represented me well. Her business knowledge proved invaluable to making my event (a business women’s retreat) a success. I hope to work with her again in the future.
