Hello and A Warm Welcome!
... a personal note from Kerry Lee dated December, 2018
After almost 20 years as one of Santa Barbara’s most long standing wedding & event planners, it has been the privilege of a lifetime to have served the clientele I have had and also build a reputation of excellence in the special event & hospitality industry as a key thought partner, innovator, as well as featured and keynote speaker at local and national industry events. The friendships and partnerships I’ve made with my fellow event partners span globally, and I’m thrilled that these relationships will continue into my next journey.
As with all incredible stories, new chapters are born either by necessity or dreams coming true. I am fortunate enough that the latest plot twist to my story is one following my deepest calling of dreams coming true: and that is my pursuit of a career with The Walt Disney Company. It is by choice I leave my role as CEO /Founder of Santa Barbara Wine Country Events to open this new exciting chapter and write the blank pages that exist in front of me.
Effective January 1, 2019, I will no longer be accepting wedding or event bookings as I focus entirely on my segue to Disney as well as my coursework for my Stanford Innovation & Entrepreneurship program, speaking engagements, and my consultancy for the special event & hospitality industry training organizations in leadership, customer experience, communications and producing specialty events for brands within our industry.
Please feel free to visit my Engaging Inspiration website for more details. The Santa Barbara Wine Country Events site will remain up to serve as a portfolio as well as a tool to cross-reference traffic to my consultancy at Engaging Inspiration.
