By: Stacy Fitzgerald-Redd  Early in 2019, TME President and CEO Christina Taylor decided to offer a unique option to the company’s existing clients: a custom confectionary food truck that would deliver a memorable ending -- a sweet-treat sendoff for event guests.  The idea proved quite the challenge, but also showcased the creativity and attention-to-detail that are the hallmarks of TME as a powerhouse event management company. I spoke this week with Christina about the company’s new offering, which recently rolled out (pun intended) at a private engagement – more than two years...

My name is Marianne Johnson and I am an Account Manager at TaylorMade Experience. Two weeks ago I ran the most miles and raised the most money I ever have, all while in quarantine. During the initial COVID-19 pandemic stay-at-home orders, I created a bit of a routine for myself with a run marking my transition from day-time leggings to night-time leggings. While running provided peace of mind during this period of unknown, I wanted to run with more of a purpose. I signed up for A Wider Circle's Race To...

How Understanding Our DiSC Profiles Strengthens the TME Team Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, and we all know that playing to our strengths tends to produce superior results. As an organization, we began to wonder how we could best discover each team member’s strengths and how we could leverage them to better serve our clients. By examining more about what makes each of us tick, could we create an environment where each one of us could flourish? And how could we formulate our teams and assign accounts so that each...

As we say goodbye to 2015 and welcome in the New Year, we love to take this time to acknowledge and appreciate everything we have in our lives. The sentiment of giving thanks is very important to us, and it’s something that we’ve made a cornerstone of TaylorMade Experience. In fact, we do a bunch of things to express gratitude throughout the year, including: We bring treats to meetings to surprise our clients with something sweet! We always send handwritten thank-you notes and a thank-you gift following a big project...

Do you experience frustration with terrible service when you shop, eat out, check in to a hotel, attend an event, or travel? At every turn, I seem to notice a lack of customer service—and I’m sad to say, top-notch service has become a dying art. This is a topic that I hold very near and dear to my heart. When I started in business, I worked for Marriott International, a company that prides itself on “above and beyond service.” Providing excellent service is something that was ingrained in me at the...

When I was young, I knew that one day I wanted to have my own business, be my own boss, make my mark on the world. I had absolutely no idea that I would build a company that my clients love and appreciate and my employees enjoy working for. Here’s how I did it - and how we continue to do it: Do work you love My entire career has been spent in the event industry, and I could not imagine doing any other work. I am a people-person, and I thrive in...

Hello Everyone! My name is Mary Iafelice (pronounced “Eye-Fell-Eese” in English, “Ya-Fell-E-Chay” in Italian), and I am pleased to introduce myself to you as a TaylorMade Experience Event Coordinator! Better late than never, right? (Enjoying some Cava in Barcelona, Spain) How is it that a philosophy major with her roots in New England ended up in Events Management in the D.C. area? Well, I will admit that back in college I was dead-set on staying in academia for my whole career. But life, as it is known to do, threw me a curveball...

Hi everyone! I’m Jessica Wessinger, and I’m excited to join the TaylorMade Experience team again as an Event Coordinator.  I say again, because I interned with TME in 2011 and found my way back 3 years later after graduation from Virginia Tech and positions with the Washington Capitals and American University. It’s been impressive to watch TME’s growth from afar over the last few years, and I’m excited at what the future has in store for us. Growing up, I never considered a career in events. I was always interested in business...

Hey Y’all! I’m Kelly Schricker, and I’m proud to announce that I am the new Event Manager at TaylorMade Experience! For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to plan events. Though, until I tried, I didn’t realize that event management was a viable career option. Determined to follow my dream, I relocated to a market I thought would be full of event opportunities, Honolulu, Hawaii (I swear the beach had nothing to do with this choice). Shortly thereafter, I landed myself a great job and joined several non-profit groups that happened...
