This episode is Part 2 in a conversation I began with Mary-Theresa Tringale about her 7-step process to creating successful events.

Mary-Theresa Tringale, currently a resident of Portland, Maine and working full-time as the Manager of Events and Sponsorships at WinterKids, also runs her own business as an Events Strategist & Producer helping entrepreneurs and organizations plan their first live events the right way.

A myriad of careers across the country have helped bring M-T to where she is now. These included: Director of Catering for a Best of Boston Restaurant, Women’s Day Magazine Sales Assistant and Integrated Marketing Manager and Events Specialist for Men’s Journal in NYC , and Marketing Manager of Advertising at Portland Press Herald.

She is the creator of the first Varsity Maine Awards in 2016, as well as played a crucial role as a founding member and now Past – President in development of the iconic The Maine Women’s Conference, the first of its kind in Maine.

She loves to guide transformative coaches or organizations with specific initiatives through the experience of creating an event that will be transformative (for your business, community, audience, clientele) and impactful and reaches people around the world.

In this episode Mary and I discuss…

  • Team: understanding what kind of support you have that you don’t have to pay for and the kind of support you will need to pay for. Ask for and allow yourself to receive support so your best can come forth!
  • Budget: Budget: Your budget starts with your original vision. What in your vision is going to cost money? It finishes with how much money you actually made what you actually spent money on. Also, the many different ways you can bring income in around your event.
  • Timeline: based on your mission, vision, budget and event date. Start with the end in mind, the date you’ve confirmed with your venue and work your way back to today.


Want to consult with Mary to then take it from there and/or hand over the execution of the event to your team?
