Sara Brown is by far the most organized, dedicated, poised and professional event planner I have ever worked with. I have been selected to emcee the Top Tech Exec Awards for multiple years. I have never seen a more well run event. Sara works countless hours to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. It’s the small details that make a big event a success, and Sara makes sure everything is perfect.Heather Myers, Anchor

I have had the pleasure of working with Sara for the past three years as a judge for the Top Tech Exec Awards. She is outstanding at coordinating all of the activities that go into such a complex event. From organizing the judging process to finalizing the details of the venue for the 800+ participants, Sara is a consummate professional who excels at communication and delivering results. I look forward to working with Sara on future events in San Diego!Dana Di Ferdinando, Chief Information Officer
As a client of Sara Brown- I was amazed at how Sara and her team were focused and dedicated to promoting our event as if it were for her own business.

Sara Brown Events is truly an exceptional and driven planner with client results in mind from start to finish.Laura Donnelly, Vice President of Marketing
Sara has been a phenomenal partner to work with – detailed, responsive, and engaging… I couldn’t have asked for a better counterpart to work with in building my own company’s initiatives. She makes her job look effortless and provides high quality results, handling challenges with grace and diplomacy.

I had the pleasure of hiring Sara to assist with Government Relations at a state-wide gathering of legislators, CEO’s, and leaders in education and faith-based organizations. Her strength in dealing with government officials and dignitaries at this event was beyond expectations. Many people approached me to comment on Sara’s handling of our guests and how much they enjoyed her energy.

I began working with Sara four years ago through Top Tech Exec of the Year awards. Sara is exceptional at planning events, catering to the technology crowd and/or any specialized vertical. I’ve really enjoyed working with Sara and I’m inspired by the passion she has for her work!Steve Romeo, Technology Executive
Sara is the consummate professional when pulling all the parts together for an event. She keeps her cool and stays ahead of the curve to make sure things go smoothly. That’s especially important for someone like me, who has been the event’s host, and the script and timeline need to be well thought out and “ready” for action. It’s been especially nice to see her evolve and grow over the years, having been the emcee for the same event for 6 years. She’s also very sweet and fun — not always the norm in high-pressure event situations. While it’s not TV, she is a great producer, something I can appreciate from my background. If I ever need someone to head up an event, she will among my top few favorites.Jane Mitchell, CEO, TV Reporter & Producer, Author, Media Coach

I find Sara to be one of the most intuitive event planners I know. Detailed to a fault, she is always prepared and always ahead of deadlines.

Sara has been on point for the San Diego Top Tech Exec event for several years now and she has shepherded me, along with a lot of other people, to a place where the event not only has its own inertia, but it is the hottest business event ticket in town.
