services event provider developed into a boutique
company whose sole purpose is to help entrepreneurs
create live events that maximize profit.

become a loyal partner to her clients helping them
achieve what she did on her own: turning her passion
into a profitable business. In devoting herself to the
planning, strategy and execution of her clients’
events, Karla allows them the freedom, space and
focus on their core business so they become better at
attracting new clients, delivering better content and
making better offers that consequently impact their
bottom line.

Karla has a unique background that combines her
legal education plus over eight years of international
sales and marketing experience in a multi-cultural
environment. In addition to her Law and Master’s
degree, she is certified in Meeting Management and
