Here are some of the comments from our team: Working with Carolyn is a true treat. Her dedication to the small details and the excellence of presentation guarantees exceptional results. This was our first Good Leadership Conference, we had a lot to learn as we planned and implemented. Carolyn was an exceptional mentor. She managed a wide variety of changes and our planning team with calm, direct leadership. When the day of the conference arrived we were ready for success and to enjoy our hard work. Carolyn provided a terrific wrap up summary and copy of all marketing materials that will serve as the format for our next conference. The knowledge and skills she shared with us not only assured a successful first conference but continued success as our company grows and produces more events. I highly recommend Carolyn Vinup. Her upbeat personality and detail oriented leadership style makes her a true asset to any company. In summary, we look forward to working with you again. Thank you.

Anne Pryor, M.A.

I had the privilege of working with Carolyn Vinup for 2 years. She came to D’Amico Catering with the task of increasing our business in the St Paul market and our corporate business overall.  Carolyn did much more than that.

Read Complete Testimonial

She was the ambassador for our company at industry events and multiple associations and chambers. She was instrumental in our acquisition of a number of new venues and redirected our efforts in determining which properties were best for our brand. Carolyn led our team in creating proposals that differentiated D’Amico Catering and won us many new venues for our portfolio.

She was responsible for recharging our marketing focus, refreshing our print media, messaging our social media and creating new marketing materials.

Carolyn is a delight to work with, full of energy and very dedicated to any project she is asked to accomplish.

Linda Adam

Director of Catering Sales, D'Amico Catering

In a word? WOW. Carolyn took an idea for an event and somehow managed to pull together three different host organizations, and over 20 speakers for an event that knocked all our socks off … in just 6 weeks!

Despite the size and scope (over 600 attendees), she made me feel like I was the only speaker of the day and I was well-taken care of from beginning to end. Carolyn is an exciting visionary who also knows how to get it done. If you want an event they’ll be talking about for ages, look no further; Carolyn will get it done. And she’s great fun to boot.
