Corporate Event Testimonials | Reviews Of Corporate Event CompanyOur Client Reviews:

 

I highly recommend Atlanta Special Events for your company functions. They are absolutely the best and offer food, Daddy O’s wonderful homemade ice cream and scheduling team building events. This company has it all!!

We had a company event on May 29, 2015 and requested an activity for Team Building along with the BBQ luncheon. Lori suggested Hunter Islands. James and his assistant did a wonderful job! Hunter Islands is an awesome fun team building activity. Our company associates are still talking about the fun they had getting to interact with associates from other departments within our company. I have heard that a picture is worth a thousand words – well, we have over 600 photos that clearly show what a great time everyone was having during our event!

We will definitely call on James and Atlanta Special Events in the future. Awesome job!

Sincerely,

Angela Fors

Hi Lori,

I just wanted to thank you again for another great party. Several people have said that this was the best Winterfest yet and they loved the setup this year. Thanks for being so easy to work with; we will see you again next year if not before.

Take care!

Lori!

Everything was fantastic! That tenderloin was amazing; the flavors were perfect. The potatoes were excellent. The carrot dish was out of this world!! Green beans are always a hit. The ice cream was delicious as always.

 
I can’t begin to describe how much fun we had last week. The event you brought to us was phenomenal! Everyone is still talking about it, and they all agree that this was the best company party we have ever had! The food was delicious, the casino tables were fun, and the ice cream was da bomb!

Lori and her team took care of everything. They were flexible and understanding to our needs. The events they have hosted have been top notch and we will definitely use them again!

Atlanta Special Events can make your event complete. They handle it all from food to entertainment for all ages. What a nice way to “plan” something when with just one call, you can have every aspect planned for any age or size crowd! We will definitely be a repeat customer! As an events coordinator, I got to show up and enjoy the event, too! Lori took care of everything!

Amy Doherty

Lori, we were very pleased with everything! Thank you so much for handling all the details for us so perfectly. Owners,Greg and Tammy were thoroughly pleased with everything…..music to balloons to tent to tables and cloths! Homerun over here, thanks again!

I have to say that the way you purposely get everything set up and ready hours before was a huge relief for me on my end. No last minute ANYTHING, AND I LOVE THAT.

I just wanted to follow up with you and let you know that I thought you and your staff did a wonderful job for our casino event. I haven’t heard any negative feedback about the day and I believe our committee is getting together on Friday to compare notes. Again, thanks for the day and the wonderful food/fun. Take care.

Just a quick note to let you know that James, Matthew & David were execeptional – They made it a night no one will forget for a long time. Everyone was practically rolling on the floor from laughter. They are definitely TOP on the list for Business Entertaintment – I would recommend them all-day-long. I was very nervous, since I had never seen their program – Once it started, no one wanted it to stop. It was a wonderful surprise. Thank you very much James, Matthew & David. Keep up the Laughter – it makes the world a better place.

Frank certainly knows how to get people on the dance floor and managed to throw in a couple of “Danish” songs, as well, to the delight of our guests.

Gitten Hagensen,

Danish Chamber of Commerce

 

“Frank, you did an outstanding job as our DJ. The music was perfect for the occasion and kept our party atmosphere going. Lori, your vocal medley was beautiful. Elvis was quite entertaining and the gaming table was a great idea. It was a pleasure working with you on this event and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

Linda Busby

Gwinnett County Convention and Visitors Bureau

 

Thank you for making Danish American Chamber of Commerce’s 10th Anniversary Gala dinner such an outstanding and memorable event. When Lori opened the gala with a song, her beautiful voice and sparkling personality started the night out on the right note, bringing the event up to an even higher and more elegant level. What a treat!

Gitte Hagensen, chairman

 

“Thank you soooo much for everything! The event was a success thanks to you and the efforts put forth by your team. From the initial phone call to the last minute of the event, working with you was a great experience. If I had any regrets the one I would have, would be that I didn’t contract you for more than one song. When you sang the National Anthem the whole place was in awe. You are very talented and have a voice that “stops people in their tracks”.

You are on my “speed dial” for my next event! Thanks again for everything. “

Patti Dayton,

Bellsouth Advertising and Publishing

Thank you for putting together an outstanding event for my company. Your recommendation of games, activities, and food and beverage was a perfect fit for our goals for the event.

I couldn’t have done it without you!

Thanks again,

Fun, competitive, could-be-dangerous, mind boggling, challenging, wouldn’t have traded it for anything!

We have used Atlanta Special Events at our company picnic for the last 10 years. They have supplied everything from a DJ to pony rides to race car simulators and every event went off without a hitch!

Hi Lori,

I just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous job you and Frank did, in setting up and performing the patriotic songs for our client group. So many of our clients stopped to comment how wonderful you were and how much they enjoyed hearing a patriotic presentation, and we’ve received several emails as well this week. Particularly touching were the rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and the special veteran’s salute. We are going to do our best to promote you and your beautiful voice to other groups who might like to hear you! Your voice is truly a gift from God .

Kindest regards,

Susan Cowan

One of the best company parties I have ever been to! D’ Amazing Race was well-organized and focused on team work, which is one of the most critical success factors in companies today.

Kraft Foods utilized Lori O’Brien and Atlanta Special Events for our annual company party. It turned out to be a total success. Lori managed the event in spectacular fashion. We received feedback from our employees that suggested that this was one of Kraft’s best parties ever. Lori was extremely thorough in making sure everything went smoothly as planned. The best part about it was she did it ALL. All we had to do was show up and have a good time! It could not have been better! So a huge THANKS to Lori and Atlanta Special Events for a job well done!

Kraft Foods

 

Dear Lori,

Thank you so much for singing at the NCAA Ladies National Gymnastics Championship. I don’t believe there is anyone else who has perfected our National Anthem like you have! People were still talking about it the next day.

I wanted to thank you and your company for the excellent company picnic that you and your company put together for Doosan. You and your staff were very effective in getting attendees involved in the many activities that were provided. Everyone was very cooperative in everything that we asked them to do and the caterer you recommended was also very good as well.

A great time was had by all and we really appreciate your company helping to make this year’s picnic a great success.

Thanks again,

Fonda J. Caviness

Lori is a very supportive and cooperative person to work with as she handled the entire event with ease. The entertainment and music provided was great. The way you worked the crowd and got their participation was marvelous! We’ve heard so many nice comments. Your willingness to work with the family’s schedule and entertain for so many hours was greatly appreciated, not only by the bride’s family but also the guests.

Tricia Terrill

 

Dear Lori,

What a wonderful show you put on for us! Your “Sinatra & Friends” Tribute show was easily the highlight of the season. We felt like we had stepped back in time listening to Frank, Sammy, Liza, Marilyn and the rest of the crew. A perfect performance for all ages! It was so much fun to see everyone dancing, and we have never seen such fervent audience participation. The laughter and reminiscing lingered for days afterward.

Everyone from our staff enjoyed working on planning this show and look forward to working with you in the future. Your performers and crew were very courteous, professional and fun, a true delight! If we can ever be of assistance to Sinatra and Friends, please do not hesitate to give me a call! Duluth is your greatest supporter. Wishing you all the best (but save the best for us!)

Sincerely,

Shirley Fanning-Lasseter

Mayor, City of Duluth

 

Dear Lori,

Thank you for a wonderful presentation of the National Anthem at our regular season home opener on September 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The anthem is a beautifully written piece of music, but it is certainly one of the most difficult for a vocalist to perform. Our fans here in Atlanta have been very vocal about wanting to hear the “traditional” rendition of this patriotic song, and you did an extraordinary job!

Thank you again for making game day special for the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome.

Sincerely,

Carol Breeding

Atlanta Falcons

 

Let me introduce you to Lori O’Brien. We just used her for ATD and to quote Steve Pitt: “She was fantastic, everyone loved her! We would use her again.” Her presentation of the US National Anthem includes a patriotic medley and PPT presentation which can be customized. She is reasonably priced and offers much more, i.e., Canadian anthem, Rat Pack and dinner shows.

“I just spoke at the Buckhead Business Association yesterday and had the honor of working with Ms. Lori O’Brien of “Atlanta Special Events” of Atlanta. She gave the most amazing opening of an event I have yet to experience in my career. She sang the national anthem and literally floored me and the crowd

Best Regards!”

Rob “Waldo” Waldman

The Patriot Group Inc.

President and Flight Lead

 

We LOVE Atlanta Special Events. Lori and her crew are fantastic and very turnkey. I worried about very little and will be using them again this October for a large event. Last year’s event was the “best ever” and the attendees talked about it for months.

Professional, entertaining, polite, “all of the above”. Couldn’t ask for better. Everything was set, in place, and ready to go before I arrived (which was early)

Seriously, you can not go wrong with Atlanta Special Events. They are a top notch agency and very dedicated to their task.

Good luck.

Greg Jones,

Newell Rubbermaid

 

Enjoyed the Show at Jerry Farber’s Side Door both weeks – It was so enjoyable and the entertainment and food and Singing were AWESOME!

“Lori and Frank, thank you for making our party such a success. We enjoyed your music so much. Your voice is just beautiful. And your chef, Mike, was a delight to work with. He was so accommodating to our vegetarian guests. We just can’t believe how good the food was, and the price was just right!”

John and Jane Hemmer

 

Last night was your best show ever. You were brilliant. It was an honor for me to be on stage with you. Please thank Frank for the great sound.

Your biggest fan,

“Lori, I was thinking about you the other day. You have a voice that is the most beautiful I have ever heard. You could make the angels sing in heaven!”

Thanks for helping make our event so special. Your talent is exceptional! We’ll talk about future events in the near future. Give our regards to Frank and our thanks for all his help.

My wife & I were so pleased with our service that we received from Atlanta Special Events. Everything was so well organized. Atlanta Special Events & staff were so friendly to our guests. The food was wonderful, I would definitely recommend Atlanta Special Events to all family & friends. Lori, did a great job keeping us abreast on all the information that we needed for our wedding to be a memorable day for us.

Thanks again Lori & her staff. Great Job !!!

Carlos and Valenteen Smith

 

From the time my wife and I first met with Lori O’Brien to discuss our wedding plans we knew we were in good hands. Her attention to detail and her flair for creative and imaginative ideas made our decision to choose Atlanta Special Events an easy one. From the caterer to the decorations, and who could forget Lori’s most beautiful voice, everything was perfect on our wedding day. Lori coordinated the efforts necessary to make our wedding day a beautiful day, one that all those in attendance will remember for years to come, and one that my wife and I thank her for dearly. We highly recommend Lori and Atlanta Special Events to be “YOUR” wedding planner!!

Steven and Sherrill Smith

 

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate everything you did to help make Vegas Night at Georgia Tech a huge success. Your advice, cooperation, and even help with the lighting on Friday night were all incredibly helpful and really were the backbone of the entire night.

So thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to the event. I’m sure we will use Atlanta Special Events for years to come!

Stephanie Johnson

“Thanks again for helping to coordinate our neighborhood casino night. Jim and his staff were professional and very organized. They did a great job of getting everyone involved and keeping things lively.

I actually quoted 5 different companies to host this event and ultimately chose Atlanta Special Events because your team clearly had lots of experience in this area, your follow up was the best and your prices were the most competitive

We have already had several requests to do this event again next year and we will definitely be calling Atlanta Special Events to run the event again. Thanks! “

Andy Zimmerman

 

My staff members told me that this was the best Christmas party ever, thanks to Atlanta Special Events. The actors were hilarious for our murder mystery, and all the details were taken care of so I could enjoy the party.

Thanks for a great time!

Lori Donovan

Lori and team were great!! With their help and expertise, I was able to throw a “first-class year-end holiday celebration” that everyone enjoyed. Lori’s interaction with the crowd was well received (I could tell by the person that I saw standing on their head for chips!) Once I contacted Lori (I was surprised when the Owner answered the phone!) she gave me clear and detailed information for me to pass on to my team for a decision. Her descriptions of my options were excellent and allowed me to make an informed decision. I contacted her in April and had a signed contract by the middle of July. After that, I just had to wait til the week before my event. The week before my event I contacted Lori again to verify/confirm details and a week later – Voila!! – an excellent party!! Should I need casino services again, I know exactly who to call!!

Thank you Lori and team for making me look like a STAR!!

“As coordinator for the GA Association of College Stores Annual meeting this year, my desire was to do something different. I wanted the entertainment to be fun and interactive for everyone. The casino party was everything I wanted and more. You and Frank kept the night going with music, games and dancing while all the “gambling” was done.”

All through the evening, I heard nothing but rave comments on the entertainment. Everyone who came had a great time.

Thank you for you and your staff’s professionalism and hard work. I couldn’t ask for a better time for my colleagues.”

Sincerely,

Laurie Davis, Treasurer

 

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help in planning our son’s wedding. We were extremely satisfied with Atlanta Special Events and Lori O’Brien. We would recommend her highly.

This is great news if, in fact, you decide to select Lori O’Brien & Atlanta Special Events. I have worked with many in her line of work – and it is without hesitation I recommend her highly. Under the theory ‘it takes one to know one’ – she is very passionate & fanatical (in a great way!)…To deliver an experience that your team will remember for a long time to come which, to me, is the whole purpose in the event.

If you are considering the services of Atlanta Special Events, and Lori O’Brien – it is with great confidence that I suggest you sign on with her! We have had the opportunity to partner alongside Lori O’Brien and her team on several occasions – and every time – I was amazed and very impressed with her entire operations and high attention to detail. Her group goes the extra mile to ensure the event is a complete success and over the top. For the standards & expectations I have, personally, in off-premise events, it is refreshing to find someone who shares that same vision – and executes it. I can & do highly recommend Atlanta Special Events with ease – having worked with them firsthand.

Sincerely,
