Amy Baggott is the Principal at EventCounselor which provides
expert advice in event space and services in Menlo Park, Mountain View, Palo Alto and Redwood City, California.
Amy's clients largely plan events themselves, but love having her do the legwork for the tasks that suck up the most time in event planning. She goes onsite to each venue and service provider to provide her clients with the in-depth information they need to whittle down to a short list. For more information, please contact Amy directly.
Amy started formal training in event planning in high school with the Junior Prom and parlayed that experience into a career where event planning was either at the center of the job responsibilities or some additional task assigned to her "because of her experience in event planning". Amy's relationship building skills, customer service experience, social connecting abilities, sales background, and project management skills make her a unique resource.
Amy was the Event Services Director at Caneel Bay Resort on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She planned and executed weddings, group meetings, parties and and restaurant events in one of the most beautiful locations in the Caribbean.
Amy was the Client Services Director at Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. She helped guests with concierge services, children's activities, and managed people doing the same.
Most recently, Amy helped to plan the Peninsula School Spring Fair as one of the main organizers (2008) and also the Peninsula School Major Donor Event (2009).
Amy has planned IPO parties (Versant Object Technology), weddings (most significantly to her, her own), engagement parties, birthday parties, destination parties, bridal showers, baby showers, executive business meetings (EnterpriseLink Technology), President's Clubs (Agency Management Services), office holiday parties, and company incentive outings (Hornblower Yachts).
