As mentioned in my bio, I lost my events director role in March with no notice. It was sudden and felt like a plaster had been ripped off. Three & a half months pregnant, I had the worst hours journey home crying and not knowing what to do with the year. How to tell my husband? Who would want to employ me now with a baby on the way?!

I immediately began a Linked in support group for event profs and a network began to grow - events professionals from across the UK industry were beginning to lose their jobs, it was devastating to see and hear. I started to put in a weekly coffee morning webinar where group members could meet and chat as well as learn from our organised weekly speaker. I got to know members very well through video chat.

I grew a volunteer group committee of 6 people and we put on for the group monthly q&a’s, wall discussion and live panel debates, job shares, virtual well-being classes & workshops & fun movie or vino nights in - all free of charge to our members. I couldn’t join the NHS volunteer scheme, but I could help my industry in some way.

We most recently collaborated with another established events agency to put on a half-day event called Ignite2020 to re-skill, re-fresh, upskill and inspire eventprofs members that were out of work and needed support to great success with over 100 live on the event and with great reviews of thanks, content, design & production compliments.

Please see a short video social created post Ignite2020 event here: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/anna-marie-trzebinski_thankyou-workingmumma-activity-6737715275497512960-6zg5

Back in June I recognised I had a real voice, a drive, a creative vision for the events industry & community and with ten years experience I decided to take matters into my own hands and begin AMTEvents. I have been working very closely with one of our Li group committee members, Toni,  with the idea that we can work together to pull off successful client events from 2021 and beyond.

I do not have any savings after this year, last pay check having been March, and would love to continue to build AMTEvents to create a design led agency that is supportive of its employees, honest with it’s clients and generally a lovely events agency to work with. Toni and I have strong working ethics and morals and a fantastic skill set between us. I would like to ensure I can say I can pay Toni fairly and I also need to be able to pay myself a salary to support my family & future until we are able to get out first client contract in and confirmed with confidence growing back throughout the industry.

After years of having many contracts ended post event with promised full-time positions never materialising and seeing co-workers burnt out I wish to continue my 2020 vision of creating a fun, creative, professional, talented and fair events design led agency.

I am requesting your help and funding to go towards :

1) Our Linked in Event Professionals Online Community Support Group for group managers time in putting on free of charge events to upskill and network for it's unemployed members as well as contribution towards expenses that come along with doing this.

2) AMTEvents resources for the first year including an intern and to support the sponsorship & employment of talented individuals recruited from the redundancy Linked in group - now with over 1000 members, that we currently manage full-time without financial help.

If there are any clients out there that may need a corporate virtual, hybrid, live or roadshow event now or in the future I would love to meet you. Likewise any private clients for private celebration planning it would be a pleasure to chat.

AMTEvents holds great marketing talent and will not disappoint in the service of event design, planning & production... I know AMTEvents will be a success due to its drive and talent but right now we need your help to continue to take back control and save our talent for the events industry.

I would welcome any questions or messages to Anna-Marie@AMTEvents.net
