From Elle’s online Professional Profile:

“A true believer in celebrating life’s milestone moments, Elle has been dreaming about a career in Event Planning for as long as she can remember. She has a passion for learning and keeping up with the latest industry trends. She is known to be a true perfectionist, which means that there is never a detail too small to be considered or noticed at an event under her planning and direction.”

In April 2015, Elle launched her own event planning company, Opulence Event Co., in Calgary, Alberta.

All QC tutors have years of experience in the event planning industry and are eager to share their professional insight and career guidance with students.

“I got so much out of the course and it was worth every penny. Not only did it teach me how to start my business but it also gives you a lot of hands-on experience. Not to mention a lot of behind the scenes advice on your business and important forms to get your brand started. Since graduating and receiving my certificate, I started my event planning business and the most exciting part [is] I’m booking weddings and other events.”

—Marie Luciano, Event & Wedding Planning graduate
