“I had the pleasure of working with Brianne Croteau early on in the planning and development stages of our conversion of a 92,000 sq. ft. existing warehouse space into a state-of-the art recreation and wellness center. Her input with respect to how we should prepare our facility to accommodate large events was invaluable. We were able to make the necessary changes to our design and infrastructure to give us the more flexibility to host community events of all sizes. I highly recommend Brianne to anyone who is in need of assistance with the logistics of event planning."
The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness
"I highly recommend Brianne for strategic planning and consulting. Brianne helped Iron Front in its early stages to target low impact, high volume meeting and event space rental clients. Brianne is really able to listen to your story before recommending solutions. If you are looking for creative advice on how to grow your business smarter and bigger, then I would give her a call. Iron Front is doing about 20 events/month right now and that number is steadily growing each month. "
