You want to plan an event? No problem. You want to plan an event — overseas? A bit more difficult.
You want to plan an event, overseas, with a sit-down dinner for 250 people and talent flying in from all over the world, who need hotel rooms and transportation? For that, you must hire Cheryl Gentry and her team.
Cheryl Gentry is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and adventurer. She has criss-crossed the globe supervising, coordinating, and executing hundreds of pieces of the puzzle that magically come together when any one of her events launches. From picking the Nordic menu in Copenhagen, to the walk-through in Berlin to verify the hotel was just as good as the gorgeous photos, to playing a round of golf in the Bahamas with an executive to finalize the smallest details, this entrepreneur brings the full range of her energy, expertise and enthusiasm to each project she takes on. And she manages to mix a little pleasure in with her business travels which included climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro after her work in Rawanda.
Her latest project was starting her new company, Onsite Planner, an app that is virtually changing the way event planners do business, using Kickstarter.
She joins Erica today to talk about her work, adventures and how she makes the most out of life.
