– Jesse Murphy, Senior Advisor, Community Relations, Capital Power
“Eryne and her entire Tycoon Team have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have become a part of our Family. They are very hard working, focused and detailed oriented….but more importantly, they are FUN! Even though I don’t have to worry about the planning details of our events anymore, I want to be a part of it because I enjoy working with them.”
– Rhonda Marano, Senior Human Resources Manager with the Little Potato Company
‘A Games Night Out’ was an unprecedented event that saw a huge success as advance tickets sold out prior to the night of the event. It was an innovative way to bring awareness to the recent resurgence of the board gaming culture to those otherwise unaware of the phenomenon.
The event was successful in large part due to the involvement of Tycoon Event Planning & Promotions. We relied heavily on owner and lead planner, Eryne Sarabin’s expertise. She was exceptionally well organized, professional, and exuded strong communication skills. Moreover, we particularly valued Eryne’s support of small local businesses.”
– Kellie Ho & Randy Wong, Owners of The Hexagon Board Game Cafe
“Tycoon has met and exceeded all expectations. Working with Tycoon events is a blast and they are really well organized. All contact information is met with a reply in a timely manner and the follow-through on promises are all made quickly and accurately. You will not regret working with Tycoon events as a vendor or client.”
– Kyle Gagnon, Chief Executive Officer at Inception VR Inc.
“During her time with Gordon Ramsay Holdings, her attention to detail, organization and professionalism with guests has been exceptional. She works well under pressure, dealing with a number of tasks at one time, and she has excellent communication skills with both clients and internal colleagues. Eryne’s role was to manage the events and to deal with up to 30-40 events per week. Organization and attention to detail are key areas where Eryne excels. She is extremely punctual, well presented, and confident in client meetings. She has a wealth of experience in the events industry and can rise to any challenge.”
– Michelle Chillingworth, formerly the Private Dining and Events Manager with Gordon Ramsay Holdings
“One of the best decisions we’ve made for the Alberta Podcast Network was to hire Tycoon Events to help with the official launch party in September of 2017. Eryne is not kidding when she says it’s all in the details, and her close attention to those details helped us put on an event that met or exceeded all of our goals. Tycoon’s planning process gave me peace of mind throughout the process, and the professionalism of the team on the day of the event was superb. Thank you, Eryne — this was everything I hoped for.”
– Karen Unland, Co-founder of the Alberta Podcast Network
“I hired Eryne to pull together an event in 2.5 weeks with extremely high expectations. Not having worked with her before I took a bit of a risk. Eryne not only met but exceeded my expectations, she was thoughtful, thorough, professional and worth the risk. Given the limited time she put together a great event I can only imagine what she can do with more time!”
– Nicole Medeiros, Community Manager for ATB Financial
“Our event planner was very knowledgeable and responded quickly to all questions and concerns that we had. She gave us multiple options for the event. Everything was set up and waiting for us upon arrival and if any issues arose our event planner took care of it in a matter of minutes. I would highly recommend Tycoon Event Planning & Promotions for any special occasion you might be planning! I will definitely be using them again!
– Dalton Nelson, Private Event Client
“Finding Tycoon Event Planning saved my event! Even though I had many other elements taken care of and under control, Tycoon was the missing piece of the puzzle. Once Eryne started working with us it all came together. From dealing with our vendors and the venue; creating custom pieces that took our decor to the next level; organizing install and strike so that everybody knew exactly what to do and when; And, dealing with the many details leading up to our big day and on the big day. Our event would not have been the success it was without Tycoon behind the scenes. I owe them big time. Eryne, in particular, is a thoughtful and detailed listener. She’s accessible and adaptable to all the twists and turns that come with event planning, and thus is a dream to work with!”
– Sarah Chan, First Lady of the City of Edmonton and 2016 Campaign Co-Chair for United Way
“Eryne was awesome at helping me get more specific about creating my vision and putting it in words so that I could create posters to promote my event. I also truly appreciated how creative Eryne was in groups, places and people to reach out to promote my services. Eryne also created beautiful posters for my event. She was also very professional, friendly, prompt and organized in her approach. I highly recommend hiring Eryne if you need support marketing your event!”
