Description:

Judy Allen is one of the world's leading authorities on event design and planning and the author of eight books for the professional, business and consumer markets. Allen, a master of creative design, has flawlessly executed successful special events_corporate, social, and celebrity_for up to 2,000 guests at a time in more than 30 countries around the world. She has designed and produced memorable events such as Disney's worldwide theatrical opening-night gala for Beauty and the Beast, and the orchestration of Oscar-winning director Norman Jewison's 25th anniversary celebration for Fiddler on the Roof. Highly skilled in staging events that are strategically designed to elicit specific guest responses, Allen has worked closely with corporate CEOs, CFOs, presidents and their executive staff around the globe to craft, implement and oversee their corporate and social business events. Allen has shown industry leaders how to use the D.R.I.V.E. principle outlined in this book to set, maximize, meet and exceed their company objectives, drive business growth and ensure they made the return they were looking for on their investment.The many diverse events that Allen has designed and executed extend from complex one-day events to elaborate arrangements of theme productions taking place over the course of a week. These events range from very exclusive VIP events to multimillion-dollar, multimedia fantasy extravaganzas including seven new car product launches and involve high-tech stage and show production. Allen's international business experience includes the corporate and non-profit sectors and encompasses a wide variety of industries, including financial services, automotive, insurance, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, retail, fashion, telecommunication, entertainment, hospitality and public relations.
