“We hired Indigo Events to manage our first convening which brought together more than 200 grantees, funders, board members, and thought-leaders working to improve postsecondary education outcomes. Kim kept the project on track with a detailed timeline and budget, managed all of our vendors, and raised challenges and opportunities we hadn’t even considered. She is professional, friendly, and calm under pressure – we were thrilled with her partnership and hired Indigo Events again to manage future events.”
