Creating and Connecting

Meet Founder Lisa Gareau

Lisa Gareau has created effective connection strategies and provided creative event support for a variety of businesses and community organizations – large and small – across Canada and around the world. Creative, dynamic, tenacious, and quick with her infectious laugh, Lisa brings a level of enthusiasm to her creative work, team training, and supportive coaching that is second to none.

Lisa is the owner of the event management and promotions company Candy Event Consulting : Making Your Team Stronger, is founder of Candy Academy of Event Management + Promotions, Candy’s networking, training, and resource division, and is publisher and founder of the brand new Moments Magazine – Event Planning Ideas + Inspiration.

With a strong drive to connect people to great causes through meaningful events and unique connection campaigns, Lisa supports those planning and promoting events for their businesses, organizations, or groups through Candy Academy – offering interactive workshops, relevant resources, and a place to grow a strong network of planning peers, engaged media, and local experts.

In all her work, Lisa provides a keen strategic perspective and the practical suggestions needed to help organizations move their initiatives forward. She brings teams into step with these plans by highlighting the importance of organizational branding, developing the specific steps for execution, and encouraging teams to contribute ideas toward strong event, project, or campaign results.

Lisa loves living near the Canadian Rockies in Calgary, Alberta, Canada – filling her days doing what she loves best – creating and connecting.
