As we celebrate another anniversary at Coterie Spark, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our team, our work and our achievements as we continue to pave a path with keeping honesty, transparency and passion at the top of our minds.


The Team:
I am so honored to work with our team and acknowledge the individuality that each person brings to the table. Each person brings a fresh perspective and is a driving force behind the firm. I am proud to see how each person reflects the spirit and value that represents Coterie Spark. At the beginning of the year, we added a Creative Director, Bianca Ferrer, to the team. Bianca has been a great addition and continues to challenge our creative vision and push our boundaries to new depths. All of us bring uniqueness to our work which shapes Coterie Spark.

The Work:
We have met a lot of new faces this year and have worked on many projects that we are honored to be a part of. With all of our clients, we believe that becoming an extension of their team is where true success is derived from. That is what drives all aspects of each program. We love what we do and that shows in every meeting, conference and event we are involved with.


The Achievements:

2014 has been a big year for Coterie Spark in the way of achievements. We all take such pride in what we do and nothing feels better than being acknowledged for that hard work. This year I am so thrilled with our awards from the International Special Event Society, Houston Chapter for Best Corporate Event over $50,000 and Best Event Design/Decor for an event over $50,000.

In addition, we were recently recognized on a national level as the People’s Choice Winner for Best Corporate Event Concept- Budget Over $250,000 with the trade industry magazine BizBash We thank all of our partners that supported us to make these awards possible. We could not have done it without all of you.

The Reflection:
At Coterie Spark, we understand the importance of taking time to reflect as a company about what we are passionate about. This summer we took the time to come together as a team and focus on what has gone well, what we would like to improve on and where we would like to go in the future. One top priority was reviewing our firm’s mission statement. We wanted to be certain our mission statement still reflected what we stood for both with our clients and internally with each other. Our final result is something that we all feel reflects the values and culture of Coterie Spark. Take a look…

Coterie Spark is a global meeting and event management firm that is focused on the strategy, planning and execution of corporate events. As an invested partner, we are an extension of your team and brand. We elevate your program with innovative solutions, while focusing on fiscal transparency to maximize your dollar spend.

As I reflect on this past year, there are some things I know for certain.We are thankful for many things, including our team, our work, our achievements and the time for reflection. We value the new relationships we have formed and our established relationships that have grown. We will never take for granted all of the partners that are involved with us day in and out on the details of our projects to make them a success. These are things I know for sure.

Now the reflection is done it is time to think about our next year. Where it will take us we will find out soon, but I know we will do it with great people that inspire us every day. Here we go!
