I’m thrilled to share that Denise Silverman, one of Clink Events‘ owners, will be speaking at Be Sage Conference this November. Denise and her partner Tanya Posavatz oversee a team of 10+ individuals who service weddings, social events, corporate events, and destination management in the Austin area and beyond. She will be sharing her insight into how to build and nurture a solid team who is dedicated to your company and your clients.
Denise has been planning events in Austin since 2002 — when she launched Soirée. Over the course of the next seven years, she grew the company to produce about 75 events a year, many of which have been published in various news media outlets and blogs. She quickly became one of the local industry’s busiest and most successful event planners.
In 2009, a merger between Soirée and CLINK enabled her to spearhead a strategic effort to departmentalize its social and corporate events. Under her leadership, the company’s social events department plans and designs stunning, high-end weddings, galas and social gatherings, while the corporate events/DMC department produces meetings, conferences and destination management programs.
Denise is passionate about building a team of people who work hard and play hard, who want to continually learn and grow in this industry, and who want to have a voice in the future of the company. She is proud of the team she has built and loves to boast about her CLINKers who have stuck around for 10+ years!
Denise was born and raised in New York and spent nearly nine years in NYC’s fast-paced world of marketing and public relations, during which she gained expertise in the areas of project management, client service and event planning. Denise graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a degree in Communications, and is a current board member of Texas 4000 for Cancer.
