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.
Now let’s get planning!
