This is why we do what we do

“If you’re hosting a big event and want it to go smoothly, look no further than C. Kay International. We worked with Caroline to organize our 110-person wedding, and it was the best decision we could have made. She helped us with everything from finding table and chair rentals to budgeting, decorating the venue, and communicating with vendors. Ultimately, she gave us the gift of sanity on our wedding day: I didn’t have to do a single thing besides show up and enjoy our guests. Forget all the cautionary stories of how “you won’t have time to eat” and “it will all be a blur.” It doesn’t have to be that way if you work with Caroline and her team. Put your time and money in good hands so you can relax and be a part of your event. You won’t regret it.”

“It’s an extraordinary capability. Caroline is always focused on her client and the outcome we want. At the end of an event, I always feel like I’ve hired the perfect cross between P.T. Barnum, Chip Heath and Coco Chanel”

Doug Barrancotto - Chief of Staff, Microsoft

“I could write a novel praising Caroline Kay and her team. From ideation to execution to the post-event evaluation, they provide the type of exemplary performance you hope to receive from any Event team but only find from the truly great ones. She always has a list of best practices and great ideas for our unique events as she brings in a bag of tricks and a wealth of experience. Caroline helps us be better, helps us avoid pitfalls, and helps us achieve the vision we intend at the beginning of planning.
Thank you for ensuring MAC’s Level Up is always a success.”

Brian Reddoch - Director of Operations, Macmember
“Making the Impossible Possible. That’s Caroline. Imagine any type of event with only a few or with literally hundreds of people and Caroline will get it off the ground in the most creative, organized, timely and efficient manner. She is literally a miracle worker. I have never come across someone who is more talented in this arena. Caroline will make it happen for you”
Organisational Development Director
“An event put on by Seattle’s rugby team, the Seattle Saracens, needs to have impact—just like our games! So we turned to C.KAY International for help in making our golf tournament a smashing success. Their team did all the upfront heavy lifting for us: managed our budget and arranged the venue, food, and beverage for the awards dinner. They liaised with our many sponsors so we could give them proper thanks and credit for their support. And on the big day, C.KAY International ensured that the golf tournament ran like clockwork. C.KAY International’s attention to detail, and energetic work enabled us to host a tournament the Saracens were proud to put their name on.”
Kevin Flynn - President, Seattle Saracens

“Imagine 500+ professional people arriving in a country where only a few of them speak the native language. All of them are there for a strategy and development conference. They have 4 days onsite to leverage their team’s talent and maximize their ROI. This is where Caroline’s super powers take over. Caroline is the most resourceful and creative events producer I have ever worked with. She knows how to make both BIG and small things happen with (what seems) like very little direction or budgets.”

Shelley Roberts - Owner, Strategy Clicks

“It was a pleasure working with the C.KAY International team to help us organize our annual Christmas events. Caroline’s ideas for new approaches created engaging experiences for our members and infused the events with fun and exciting elements. She can see the big picture and vision to help an organization create a dynamic gathering.”

Catherine Filippini - Executive Director, British-American Business Connections
“We recently partnered with C.KAY International to produce a special holiday cocktail reception to thank and celebrate our clients. C.KAY International handled all aspects of the festivities from organizing the event to offering the 300 guests’ delicious food and drink, a variety of live music, an ice sculpture, and fun holiday activities. The advance planning was on-point and creative, and on-site management of the event was outstanding. We trusted C.KAY International to produce a successful, memorable VIP client event for us and they delivered in every possible way.”
Joseph Meade - Vice President Customers, Boeing & Rolls Royce
“When the need for additional support comes up our very first call is to Caroline with C.KAY International. Over the years she has managed entire events for us and supported on huge events such as 20,000-person conference in the US to events across the pond in Europe. She has supported us on major eSports events in Boston, Kiev, Berlin, and San Diego. We trust her and that trust does not come lightly. Caroline has proven time and time again why we choose to call her first. She understands the importance of the details big and small – because she’s just as particular as we are. We’re happy to partner with her year over year domestically and across the globe.”
Marcus C. White - CMP | Principal, MCW Events LLC

“C KAY International helped us pull together a fabulous evening for over a hundred of our clients and other Sticks people. We wanted a careful balance of organization and informality, and C.KAY International managed to hit just the right note. Everything happened as it needed to without anything appearing too stuffy. It was important to make sure it reflected the right tonality for our brand, and the event delivered exactly that.”

Kevin May - Founding Partner, Sticks LLC
“The very best of many event organizers with whom I have worked.”
Kim Fitzsimmons - Head of PR, British Telecommunications

“I’ve relied on C.KAY International for three important client events for my consulting firm: two conferences for 400 guests and another for 250 guests. They handled all the logistical details with professionalism, thoroughness, and care—leaving me free to focus on my clients and my work. From initial planning to managing all details on-site, C.KAY international has enabled me to offer valuable networking and learning experiences for my clients.”
