Susan Nielsen, M.S., APR
September 4, 2014 - Genia and I worked very closely together on major projects and events at Bozzi Media. We launched several large, new, high profile events during our mutual time at the magazine/publishing group. I was, at that time, Editor of Inland Business Catalyst Magazine. Thanks to her expertise at managing and promoting events, we sold out our first "Women in Business Leadership Awards" breakfast and packed the house for the "20 Under 40" and "Best Businesses" events that same year. She was organized, calm and creative throughout the planning, actual event and was disciplined with follow up. I never worried that an event would be professional because she made sure all the event goals and elements were achieved or surpassed. She is a master at keeping multiple projects on the burner--so even when she is preparing for an event tonight, she is still making sure future events are moving forward. Genia is enjoyable to work with, well connected and well respected in the event management field. When she is involved with an event I know it will be fabulous, fun and memorable!
September 13, 2012 - Genia, as the owner of Mia Bella Eventi Productions, pulled together an event for 1,200 people in little more than three weeks. It was a complex formal event with many community leaders and dignitaries. Everything was perfection from the publicity, red carpet, paparazzi and swag bags to the entertainment, catering and vendors. The event was a sell-out, was the talk of the town for many weeks and set the bar high for subsequent events! Genia is creative and calm, connected to vendors and collaborators and always a gracious hostess. She brings all the necessary elements together to create memorable events.
