2021 Connect Corporate 40 Under 40: Samantha Rosen

Samantha Rosen, 35
Senior Event Planner, Redstone Agency Inc., Toronto

 
What I do:
From start to finish, I work to coordinate and execute virtual events for a large range of organizations and companies. Along with my team, we plan, build the platforms, and most importantly come up with innovative ways to make every event unique and elevate the attendee experience. 

How I got here:
Wedding planning for over 20 years (as a side hustle) led me to realize events were my true passion. I took a leap and signed on with Redstone in 2019 and wouldn’t change a single thing! 

My greatest career accomplishment:
I returned from maternity leave to a job that nowhere near resembled the job I left. I thrived on in-person interactions and events, and had to quickly learn how to enjoy an entirely new industry. I went from being the person who always required tech support to being the person who was providing it. I am most proud of my growth and the skills I have learned. I have managed to teach myself, along with the support of my amazing team, to get to me where I am today.

Impressive stats:
In the six months I have been back to work, I have had seven return clients request I be part of the team for their next event. 

What I'm working on right now:
Becoming certified in multiple platforms is something I’m excited about. Although digital platforms are constantly evolving, and there is always something new to learn, I will find a way to get the client what they need.
