Jennifer and Ashlee were expert advisors on Event Management during my tenure as a Professor in the Fundraising Management Post Graduate Program. They met with students who were creating and managing fundraising events for our program's charity partners. Jennifer and Ashlee were valuable contributor to the students' education in two key ways. First, from their wealth of knowledge and experience, they provided excellent coaching on event planning, innovative concepts, sponsorship acquisition and activation, event day management, and creative problem solving. Second, they served as inspiring role models. Jennifer and Ashlee showed the students what it means to be professionals. Their conscientious approach to events and their tireless work ethic demonstrated what it takes to be excellent. And their cheerful demeanours and senses of humour made learning fun.
