Corporate Events - Good, bad, and ugly
We have a problem. Our attendees are required to attend our events. A walk on the beach with a mimosa in hand, ah, the ease of corporate...
I’m Tanesha Moody. A performer first, my youth was spent with hours of rehearsals in dance studios and eventually in acting classes. I happen also to be recognized as one of Bizbash’s Top 500 Most Influential Event Pros in the US & Fresh Faces – Event Pros to Keep Your Eye On.
My passion for the Performing Arts and the power they possess to change the world positively led to pursuing a BFA in Stage Management and working professionally in Theatre. However, an opportunity with Disney's Event Group lit my passion for the events industry. My first events felt like Theatre on fire, and I was hooked!
My event experience has expanded multiple realms of entertainment, hospitality, and corporate event industries. I have had the opportunity to create experiences and events from conception through completion ranging from intimate weddings to in-person and virtual large-scale conferences for over 10,000 attendees at Under Armour, Newseum, and Walt Disney Company's Disney Event Group, and over 100k attendees at Salesforce. These events have included high-ranking government officials, executives, international VIPs, and celebrities alongside their security teams that have transported attendees into immersive environments and invigorated them to accomplish their goals. I have led, motivated, and mentored individuals, including a team of almost 200, to ensure that the signature event at Marriott International's Gaylord National, which attracted over 160,000 attendees, was successfully executed. I am very comfortable working behind the scenes and coordinating logistical details while also quickly resolving issues that arise on-site, something I had the privilege of doing while a part of the Stage Management Team for Mean Girls First National Tour. My experience has included defining strategies, producing business-critical activations, and building departments from scratch.
My passion for special events, ability to perceive challenges from various perspectives, and unique skill set, which stems from a professional theatre and education background, contribute to creatively bringing the client's vision to fruition. My in-depth knowledge, positive attitude, and constant smile shine through on every project, knowing that the small spark I bring to an event can assist in making a greater difference.
