************* The Short Self-Pitch (SSP) *********************

Hello! Here is my Short Self-Pitch. Thank you!

My name is Alison Tuminski Donald and I am a freelance meeting and

special event planner from Princeton, N.J., who also holds experience in

public relations and marketing communications.

With nearly 15 years of combined agency, corporate and freelance

experience, I have planned, produced and managed meetings and events

ranging in size from 15 to 30,000+ attendees in locations around the

globe. I have worked on a number of different types of events – from

national sales conferences to company picnics to fundraising galas, and

much more. Clients have ranged from local nonprofit organizations (such

as CancerCare of New Jersey and The Arts Council of Princeton), to

international Fortune 500 companies (such as Tyco International and

Johnson & Johnson).
