Karla Kreitner
Senior Event Planner

Kardon Events
www.kardonevents.com

Everyone wonders how the CFO of an IT company started an Event Planning company. Well, working as a key member of Kardon Group and other technology providers for 20 years, Karla Kreitner started doing events when she organized the companies’ annual client meetings and seminars. The company would host training seminars and client appreciation events around the country. Airline and hotel reservations as well as complete agendas, meeting rooms and all other venue arrangements were coordinated by Karla. Not only did Karla do a fantastic job year in and year out, but she enjoyed that aspect of planning successful events. Thus the creation of Kardon Events. Since the start of Kardon Events in 2006, Karla has orchestrated one of a kind events that include Client & Employee Appreciations, Birthday and Anniversary parties, major fundraisers and unique corporate and social events.

Let me be perfectly clear. The concepts I write about are not necessarily complicated. A good technical writer creates precise and easy to digest content that explains simple and complex ideas. The business value that well written content contributes can be translated into employee productivity and retention, as well as bottom line dollars.

My clients and I value my 10+ years of Fortune 500 corporate background as a business analyst, trainer, project manager, and process engineer. These experiences uniquely position me to write as a subject matter expert.


Andrea Oppenheim
Creator of Memorable Travel Experiences

Find A Pearl Travel
www.FindAPearlTravel.com

A passion for travel inspired Andrea to find her way to the travel industry. She observed that many of her friends were overwhelmed with the vast array of options available online for planning travel. They were so stressed over the planning process that they lost much of the joy of the journey. And when they returned, they didn’t always have wonderful stories to tell. Andrea realized that just because people could plan their own travel online, it doesn’t mean that they should. Understanding that vacation time is precious, she works to understand what her clients want and why it’s important to them so she can design the best travel experience. She wants each experience to be memorable. Her professional journey includes a career in software and project management as well as a career in wealth management with a major firm. She has two degrees from Northwestern University – a BS in journalism and an MBA. As a serial entrepreneur, she has owned multiple businesses including a restaurant, a bus company and an equipment leasing firm.

Numbers That Work For You!
www.numbersthatworkforyou.com

Robin M. Robboy started Numbers That Work For You! with the goal of helping ambitious entrepreneurs optimize their success by focusing on doing what they do best. She does this by creating a customized virtual accounting department for each customer. The accounting work, and all of its inherent distractions and frustrations, is done professionally in NTWFY’s offices. This frees both time and space in the business, which can be redeployed to contribute to success rather than compliance. Using state of the art tools and cloud based technologies, coupled with a strong commitment to transparency, working with Robin and her team means that the business owner maintains complete control of finances, in fact vastly improved control, while letting go of the labor.

For the ambitious entrepreneur, a Numbers That Work For You! Virtual Accounting Department means you now have more time to focus on what’s really important to you, on running and growing your business, serving your customers, marketing your unique and fabulous offer, or even spending time with your family, while we push the paper, pay the people, and get your customers to pay you. You can use real data – significant numbers and meaningful performance indicators - to inform your business decisions. This works so much better than flying by the seat of your pants! You have a strong financial ally in your corner, helping you identify and lessen risks, evaluate opportunities, plan for success, and meet your goals for your business.

Robin’s motto is “Do what you do best and hire the rest!”
