Your Meeting Matchmaker Fairy Godmother

RFP Organization 101

in: Meeting Planning Economics Meeting Planning Experience Meeting Planning Services

Welcome to the RFP Organization 101 Class. Oh wait, what are you doing here? You do not need this class! Why? Because . . . . you have me.

Okay, I know that organizing RFP responses from hotels ranks in your top five of fun when it comes to meeting planning. Oh, it doesn’t? It’s tedious, you say. Then here is the good news; you can simply stop this mind-numbing activity immediately. Yes, right now at this very moment.

My guess is that you are not fond of the fact that each hotel’s RFP format is different from the rest; leaving you to comb through each proposal to find the pertinent information, contact the hotel to retrieve the missing (pertinent) information, then add it all into your own format. At times things get a bit sticky, especially when some of the information appears to be meant for another organization as you see their name sprinkled about in Your proposal.

Lucky for you, I am so familiar with the various ways the properties handle proposals, that I know exactly what to look for, what to watch out for and how to make it all right (and even better). I then present it to you in a very organized and easy-to-navigate spreadsheet format.

So, you see, you do not need a class in RFP Organization, you just need me. Oh, and did I mention that my service is a value add? I am like the ultimate coupon (100% off!). I can make your life quite a bit easier and I am more than happy and honored to do so. On top of it all it is exactly what it is – no hidden fees, no “wink wink” unmentioned agendas, no catch, no unexpected unpleasant anything. I have VERY happy clients who have more time to do what they do best – plan meetings!

To get started, call me at 636-797-3405 or e-mail  Or just post a comment on my blog and let me know how I can be of assistance to you!
