I don’t want to run your event.
I want to coach you to run it.


Having worked in the events industry for over a decade, I have planned conferences, exhibitions, film-premiers, gala events, sporting days and private celebrations including weddings & parties.

I love offering advice to people who rarely or never organise events, because I understand just how daunting & time-consuming it can be. Organisations, not-for-profits and associations often have the workforce and skill to plan and manage their own events, however need short-term coaching on key processes, templates, suppliers and strategies. This is where I come in.

What I do

What I do

I meet & talk with people who have an upcoming event, understand the ins, outs and challenges they’re facing, and coach them to plan and run the event.

Through our conversation and a post-meeting report, I’ll provide logistical tips, recommend suppliers and advise ways to minimise labour, that will help your event run professionally and more importantly, keep you and your staff organised.

What I don’t do

Give you generic directions (“make sure you measure your ROI”), take over the planning of your event or sell you a hundred hours of my time. My goal is to give you high-level industry tips & knowledge, so you can take control of your own event.

Clever Care NOW Expo

“The Clever Care NOW (formerly Nurses On Wheels), Clever Ageing Expo in Feb 2018, was greatly enhanced by the practical templates and operational assistance provided by Gemma at ‘Your Event Coach’.

We utilised the array of online tools with great effect to plan the day and deliver a professional Expo for exhibitors and visitors on the day. All contingencies were anticipated for a smooth and incident free function.

I can highly recommend ‘Your Event Coach’ for your next event, large or small.”

 – Jill Deering, CEO, Clever Care NOW

Belle & Matt Wedding

“As a self-confessed ‘poor planner’, organising a wedding (venue, caterers, decorations and entertainment) was not going to be easy.

The support provided by Gemma was invaluable – and definitely made the planning a lot easier and less stressful for us. Gemma’s spreadsheets and documents were detailed and practical. She gave us tips and thoughtful suggestions, from the big issues (e.g. wet weather plans) to the small (e.g. where to position the bridal table).

Gemma is lovely to work with – she exudes ‘calm’ and ‘in-control’, whilst having a great sense of humour. I would highly recommend ‘Your Event Coach’ for any event.”

CrossFit Masters League 2018 Invitationals

“The Australian CrossFit Masters League 2018 Invitationals were held at our gym last year and I can honestly say, it would not have been as successful without the expertise and professionalism from Gemma at “Your Event Coach”.

We had approximately 100 athletes come through our gym on this day and the feedback we received was incredible, most saying it was the “best run comp” they had ever been to. 
Gemma’s tools, strategies and tips ensured an incident free day which ran so smoothly and finished right on time.
We highly recommend “Your Event Coach” to care for any of your event or function needs, no matter how big or small.”
