I have worked with Maike for over 10 years now. She is an expert in large event management. She has a deep knowledge of what it takes to run a successful complex training event end to end, from site selection, through contract negotiation, project management and successful execution and problem solving. She has extensive experience all over Europe in this capacity. Maike has a unique talent for building very strong client relationships and leads with a client first approach. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

I had the pleasure of working with Sinead on a recent very large event, 1,700 sellers from across Europe and the Middle East came together for a sales and technical sales event in Madrid. Sinead was my project manager for this event and was superb. She stepped into this new role, learned the team, created and ran the project plans. Sinead was thorough and patient through the changes and kept us all aligned and on track.

Her authenticity, professionalism and positive energy are a driving force in executing any event and exceeding expectations. She is action oriented and has a great ability to bring her client´s vision to reality. I highly recomment Maike Grimpe for any event large or small.

“Maike is a true entrepreneur! Her brain is constantly set on how to do better, how to grow her clients business and reputation, how to amaze participants to the events not only proposing new ideas but also managing to deliver them on budget. #NeverGiveUp is her mantra, during the last two Fast Start Sales Enablement kickoff she led the team to deliver an outstanding job. We have been all impressed by her ability to quickly take decisions and her accountability on delivery, but most importantly in her business acumen in anticipating patterns and proposing innovative ideas.“

Sinead recently worked as Program Manager for a large and complex event in Europe. Her project management skills were put to the test due to many changes, with nearly 300 sessions running (simultaneously over 4 days). Sinead was often challenged with complex scenarios that required immediate resolution. I found Sinead’s approach calm, methodical and personable. The event was a huge success.

Maike and I worked together on numerous European enablement events over the last 10 years. For me, Maike is the ultimate professional. She has an absolute passion for the job, she is always friendly, calm and very professional and has a wonderful work ethic. She offers guidance and support to her peers and members of extended team. She is dedicated and extremely knowledgeable in the tasks that she undertakes. Her experience and network in the event management area is an absolute advantage. She always tries to find a solution no matter how tricky a situation might appear. On top Maike has a wonderful sense of humor – it is an absolute pleasure to work with her.

I worked with Maike on dozens of events over a 6 year period of time. The size of the events ranged from a few hundred people to multiple thousands but across all of them the complexity of what was required to make it a logistical success was significant. Whenever a new event was being planned I would ask my team, "is Maike on it?" and when they answered, "Yes", I knew it would be a success. Maike is a professional, she knows this business and gets things done. But what really makes her stand out is how she responds when the inevitable last minute issues come up. She is always steps ahead of everyone, with multiple back-up plans or creative ideas on how to carry off a new request. She is a partner you can trust.

Maike is an outstanding event management leader, demonstrating exceptional attention to detail, dedication to the customer, and passion for the business. I worked with Maike on many events and always knew that those events would execute correctly and meet or exceed our expectations. Maike's ability to coordinate with venues, vendors, and attendees is wonderful. If I were holding an event, anywhere in the world, I would want Maike to coordinate it.
