The Confetti Academy presents Diane Khoury

What a spectacular day Melbourne put on for our highly anticipated networking luncheon with special guest Diane Khoury  (www.dkevents.com.au) joining us for the day from Sydney.

At the beautiful Greenfields (http://www.greenfieldsalbertpark.com.au) our guests walked into a daytime delight, stunning long tables adorned in Simmons Linen, (www.simmonslinenhire.com.au) with personalised vases by Cartel Flowers (www.cartelflowers.com.au) and the sweetest of treats by Chantal Patisserie.

The stage was set by the lush velvet pieces by Che Event Hire (www.cheeventhire.com.au) with a breathtaking acrylic box of Cartel Flowers roses. Every little detail was set to spoil our incredible guests. 

The energy, the excitement, the new and familiar faces! There was such a buzz through the room. 

Diane shared with us her journey from KPMG into the world of events, taking us through the incredible experiences she has built with her clients while managing their expectations and spends. Even a million dollar budget left her micro-managing every cent!

We took a quick break to enjoy the melt in your mouth meals while sipping on Crafters Union Wines (www.craftersunionwine.com), the best dressed drinks around! Shortly followed by our industry panel. 

Amanda of Cartel Flowers (www.cartelflowers.com.au), and long time supporter of The Confetti Academy, was the first to join us on stage. Followed by the talented Cveta of Wedding Paper Chic (www.weddingpaperchic.com), Katie of Simmons Linen (www.simmonslinenhire.com.au) and Denise of Nikos Cakes (www.nikoscakes.com.au), who had only opened her second location days earlier! Incredible industry leaders sharing about how they manage through the day to day, and which events they’ve worked on that have taken their breath away. 

But it was as our guests came together to network over dessert that the room filled with voices as guests sought out one another to introduce one another, connect and fill their cups with delicious The Scoop Co. gelato! What an incredible way to celebrate our #confetticollegues as we enjoyed being the guests of honour at our very own event. We can’t wait to get together and do it all again soon!
