Savvy in business, a shrewd negotiator and a social butterfly, meet Angela Skeen.
As the founder of Eventfully Angela, Angela brings over a decade of corporate event industry experience, as well as a background in marketing, sales, and finance. A graduate of DePaul University, she holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a concentration in Marketing and a minor in Graphic Design.
For more than nine years she held the Sr. Meeting Planner position at Ingersoll Rand, a diversified Industrial Company. In this role, she executed global events for all business units within the company of 40,000-plus employees. Iconic brands for which she has planned include Club Car golf carts, Schlage locks, Trane and American Standard HVAC, ThermoKing transport refrigeration & temperature control and Nexia Home Intelligence, amongst others. Angela’s partnership with Ingersoll Rand continues today.
In 2015, Angela obtained her Certified Meeting Professional Certification (CMP), a credential recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition and event industry.
In 2016, Angela went on to achieve her Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM), an MBA-level executive education program for proficient meeting professionals with management experience.
In 2017, she launched Eventfully Angela as an event industry blog, sharing the life of an event planner and tips of the trade. This transforming experience led her to advance Eventfully Angela as a meeting and event planning partnership solution. She partners with businesses that have limited internal resources, or may be unequipped with the specific technical skills needed to manage the complexities that successful event management requires.
Today, she continues her entrepreneurial planning passions to honor the celebratory spirit of the fierce woman that raised her, to cultivate a meaningful life and legacy for her three children, and serve others with her expertise and aptitudes.
I was raised by my Grandmother since I was two years old.
She was a teacher and an artist. Fierce, charismatic, vibrant, stubborn, creative, passionate, intense, giving and resilient. She engineered a life rich with traditions and nearly daily celebrations.
Good grades were honored with THE special red plate and a “backward” dinner with dessert as the first course. Our Christmas caroling parties showcased elaborate décor with a tree in EVERY room of our house, each with its own collection of themed ornaments.
Annual Halloween parties featured bobbing for apples and touch and feel boxes full of spaghetti for brains, and grapes for eyeballs. Not even May Day was safe from a celebration, as we left handmade paper cone baskets full of lilac flowers on people’s front doorknobs on the first of the month.
And my favorite of all celebrations was the morning ritual, where she cheerfully and LOUDLY sang, “Rise & Shine” to get us out of bed.
It was fairly annoying at the time, but what I wouldn’t give to hear her sing it today.
She died of pancreatic cancer when I was a junior in college, but her celebratory legacy lives on as I raise my own family, and in my daily life as an event planner. My profession is rooted in celebration that not only brings me great fulfillment, but keeps my grandmother’s creative spirit close to me.
I have had the pleasure to work in the event industry for over a decade, and have been groomed in hospitality since birth. I am dedicated to continuous learning and growing both personally and professionally in this field.
Through this passion, I honor the celebratory spirit of this fierce woman that raised me, cultivate a meaningful life and legacy for my three children, and serve others with the gifts I have been given.
I am so glad you’re here. Now let’s get planning!
