Holiday Light Up Testimonial

I had the pleasure of working with Kirsta of Wild Heart Collective LTD. the first time in 2015, when I hired her as Site Manager for our DBA Holiday Light Up - a large, free, public event with lots of moving parts that draws 10,000-plus people to Churchill Square. Light Up Site Manager is a challenging, short-term position with many responsibilities. Duties include supervision of all set-up and load-in including stage, sound, and food vendors; direct supervision of the Security Captain, working with him to ensure a safe and secure event site; and ensuring operations run smoothly and efficiently during the event. This is a lot to put on one person's plate. Happily Kirsta figured it all out quickly, then proceeded to exceed all of our expectations.

Kirsta is a take-charge person with a clear understanding of how large public events work and should be managed. She's a strong communicator - calm, clear, and deliberate. She shared many good ideas with us that improved Light Up 2015, and other ideas that we will implement in future events. She also worked well with our team. She's smart, personable, extremely well organized, and very calm -- all so very important when you're working under the stresses that come with event production/management. We hope to continue to work with Kirsta and her company Wild Heart Collective in the future. With her strong skillset, abilities, good energy, and dedication Kirsta will make a great asset to your team. I am certain you will be very pleased if you hire her.
