Who is The Modern Event Planner?


Planning events has always been Anita's thing, from her very first event at 15 years old to managing 500 speakers to coordinating over 2000 delegates. Event management runs through her veins and she finds complete joy in creating conferences and events with a difference.

She loves working with clients who allow her to lead and work with them, to create successful events that not only align with their brand, but also their purpose and values.

Anita's vision for The Modern Event Planner is to create change within the industry and to give her clients a choice and flexibility on how their events are managed. She wants to make it easier for information and knowledge to be transferred and to better develop internal teams. This ensures that her clients' events not only run smoothly, but successfully.
