How An Eye for Detail Events came about
Hi there, my name's Cassandra, although please call me Cass its much less formal.
As the founder of An Eye for Detail Events I thought it was about time I shared a little insight into myself, how I set up my company and more about my passion – creative event planning!
I have been managing events of all kinds for the last 16 years across the hotel, travel, wedding, and corporate IT sectors. I have a wealth of experience in delivering a range of events from 20 people to 1500 people.
I set up An Eye for Detail Events in 2016 because I wanted to come out of the corporate sector after being immersed in it for over 12 years. I knew I wanted to get involved in more creative event concepts - typically themed events, such as parties, gala dinners, networking receptions and product launches.
When I moved home I decided there was no better opportunity than the present to set out on my new venture!
My Passion – Event Theming
My passion is being able to convert a blank canvas event space into a visual masterpiece. I love creating events that wow your guests as they walk in, inspire and engage the guests in tantalising new ways. Ultimately I want them to feel inspired to want to come back and experience it all over again!
We will transform your venue by bringing together ideas for props, decoration, table dressing, lighting, draping and entertainment to bring your concepts to life. We can continue the theme into your event stationery or event communications to ensure it flows throughout the event.
Having a theme, whether it's bold and quirky or subtle and classy can really make your event stand out.
My approach to Event Planning
Those who have worked with me before can endorse the core values of my work. I believe honesty, open communication, trust and professionalism are the fundamentals. These are combined with the finer details that make an event stand out and get noticed.
We like to understand the motives behind your event, the emotions you want your guests to experience as they walk in, what you want them to experience throughout and the action and emotion you want them to take away with them.
Freelance On-Site Event Management
Another service I provide is Freelance on-site event management. This is where I like to support smaller more local organisations and event agencies who have less in-house event resources. These companies often manage the up-front planning but don’t have the time, or team to manage the guests and the suppliers and do all the running around on-site. So I can either support their in-house teams or run events independently.
On-site event management is where I really come into my own. I love the buzz of being on-site, problem solving, ensuring people get where they need to be, and ensuring that suppliers are delivering what they should be - on time, on scope and on budget. My focus is ensuring all guest's expectation are exceeded and that everyone goes home happy!
Where do we organise events?
An Eye for Detail Events is based in the beautiful village of Hartley Wintney in Hampshire. I tend to work with clients in Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey, but also have clients further afield. I would be delighted to travel nationwide or globally to support your event.
