Testimonial 1
Melissa (Lagowski, Big Buzz Idea Group) stepped in as our management company during a period of turbulence for the organization. Her strength in process and systemization put us back on solid footing. We never before experienced the expertise she brought to every program and project. Tasks were handled promptly and with a strong dedication to accuracy.

Big Buzz’s experience and knowledge enhanced EAIM’s income stream while lowering expenses. Big Buzz helped our organization to be more professional, creating goodwill and excitement throughout the community, with the vendor artists, performing artists and community businesses. Big Buzz helped EAIM carry out our mission and carry out the mission twice as fast. EAIM members are impressed and thankful.”

During our three years with the event agency, profits stagnated while expenses increased. The management company pooled together almost all the sponsorship money it acquired, allocating a portion to each event they managed. In the first year that Big Buzz Idea Group managed our event, net profits more than doubled. More importantly, BBIG’s total transparency meant we knew where each dollar came from and how it was spent.
