Hello, I’m Jeanne C. Kirk, CMP
Senior Event Strategist, ESN
With more than 30 years in the industry as a planner in the association, corporate and third party company arenas, I know you have a lot on your plate with less time to get it done! With my experience paired with our best practices by managing over 8,400 events annually and $1.2 billion of total spend, our vast resources, supplier partnerships, and significant buying power, coupled with yours, I can save you time, reduce liability, and provide more bang for your buck.
And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.
It would be my pleasure to partner with you as an extension of your staff to help you deliver an exceptional meeting experience.
“As someone who has been involved in planning high end events all over the world, I know how time consuming and challenging the site selection process can be. In my nearly 30 years in the industry, I have never known someone as dedicated, thorough, tenacious and honest in their work ethic than Jeanne Kirk. Jeanne’s past experience as a meeting planner gives her insights into the complexities involved in planning an event and what is needed for success. Jeanne knows exactly what we are looking for and precisely how to negotiate a favorable contract. Jeanne has saved us hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in finding the right hotel for our meetings and conventions. That is true both before and after the event. She never hesitates to follow up and favorably negotiate any issue that may arise. She is a true professional and a valued member of our team”

“Jeanne Kirk helped us with contracting hotel rooms and meeting space for our User’s Meeting beginning in 2013, and she has managed to get us concessions which have saved us over $30,000 each year! We would NEVER have been able to do that without her. I wish I had found her sooner. Thanks, Jeanne!”
Director of Marketing Operations
“I wish I had found Jeanne and Experient years ago. What a difference it makes in group travel planning to have the negotiating power of Experient and the personal service Jeanne offers. I can’t imagine going back to doing this on my own.”
