Mafietta Movement (MM) – When did you discover your knack for design?
Kristy Sibley (KS) – I’ve always been able to put things together in ways that draw the positive attention of others. For example, when I was in school, my mom used to make my clothes. That gave me a source of pride and fostered my love for design because my mother created my wardrobe with such love and skill that my teachers thought my clothes were straight of the rack. It also led me to pair things together in ways that others hadn’t tried yet. Doing this successfully over time made me look at myself and say – Hey, you have a knack for making things look good and I’ve carried that spirit and enthusiasm into full event management.
MM – What separates you from other event managers?
My extensive training and strong network of vendors separate me from a number of other event managers. Because the event design industry is ever evolving, it is important to stay abreast of new trends and innovations – so over the years I’ve had training from some of the most high profile names in the business.
I’ve attended Preston Bailey’s Master Design Class.
I’ve attended a Design Session wth Colin Cowie.
I’ve even traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to take a class from, David Tutera.
Kristy has also assisted Key Designer, Jennifer Edwards, with the design for the BMI Country Music Awards.
MM – What would you say to an event manager ready for the next level?
Make sure you’ve built a strong network and know when to outsource. As event managers, we must match our audience. It is important to be able to pull a complete design team together if you need to, but make sure your subcontractors are credible, have a valid business license, and references. This is your business, don’t just take their word for it, make sure you have a signed subcontracting agreement.
Hats off to CEO Kristy Sibley as she lives her dreams. That’s #Mafietta.
