We were lucky enough to be the beneficiary of Jen’s amazing talents as Ronald McDonald House was the chosen charity for the 2018 Jamboree for Charity – an event she runs annually in Calgary. Jen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s always thinking a few steps ahead, and handles everything with grace, professionalism, and a dose of humour. It was my first experience with a third-party fundraiser, and Jen was more than generous with her time and expertise. She executes every detail effortlessly, and has a wonderful, infectious energy. Jen doesn’t just sparkle; she shines!

Jennifer organizes an annual Jamboree for us that transforms a private downtown club into what feels like your neighbor’s living room. She is one of the most effective people I know at getting stuff done on time and on budget in a manner that consistently surpasses expectations. My only hesitation in providing a recommendation is she will no longer have time to devote to our events!

Jennifer James organized a wonderful celebration to celebrate the launch of our Calgary office. The “Boots On the Ground” event was a great success. Planning long distance is challenging. Jennifer and her team looked after every detail and managed the execution flawlessly.
I have worked with Jennifer on large, over the top events to small intimate lunches. Her work ethic is amazing. Not only that but she personally is a delight to work with. Jennifer is very creative and she also uses her project management lens to make sure that no detail is missed. She is an expert on contingency planning which is a must in Calgary. I highly recommend that you use Jennifer James on your next event.

The Canadian Heavy Oil Association (CHOA) contracted Jennifer to manage several of our signature events. Jennifer brought tremendous expertise in event conceptualization, logistics and sponsorship.
As an example, Jennifer managed two back-to-back, double field golf tournaments with military precision AND provided an amazing experience for the 512 golfers, tournament sponsors and golf venue staff. Jennifer was unfailingly upbeat and professional and the polish she brought to all the events she managed remains today.
I am grateful for the capacity, strength and polish that she brought to CHOA’s events during her tenure.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jennifer James in conjunction with an upscale charity benefit concert in support of the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Not only is Jennifer professional, energetic and passionate, her attention to detail and exceptional event management skills meant the only thing our team needed to do was focus on fundraising. Thank you Jen, for your expertise and dedication, which resulted in a generous investment for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation and kids and families in our community.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jennifer James at the Jamboree for Charity event in support of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, Ontario Chapter, which took place in downtown Toronto at Arcadian Court. Jennifer’s incredible attention to detail ensured the event was well executed, and she brought a tremendous amount of passion and creativity, which helped to pull off our country theme perfectly.
She was extremely organized and easily accessible. I’d highly recommend Jennifer for any large scale event.
