Backyard Backstories with Washington, D.C.'s Kerry Sauber!

Kerry Sauber

Time to get the ins-and-outs of our nation's capital with Hello! Washington, D.C. Account Executive Kerry Sauber!

Kerry's "One Perfect Day" in Washington, D.C. is in the spring or the fall, when you can walk around the National Mall or Georgetown, grab lunch, and sit outside in the great weather. She chose to make D.C. her home for several reasons, but most of all, she loves that it's a melting pot of different people—not only from across the country but around the world. Kerry is passionate about exploring all the new things that are constantly popping up in the city, such as new restaurants and museum exhibits. "Every weekend there's something new to eat and see!" she says. Kerry thinks people would be surprised to know that D.C. has much more to offer than just politics and government, and in her opinion, Rasika is one of the best restaurants that visitors absolutely must sample.

That's it for our November Backyard Backstories—see you in December!

I am very grateful to have a team of professionals who have come from a variety of different places and backgrounds for the common goal of building a business. I am so appreciative of their awareness that we are building a culture and changing the game in our destination, and that they are driven as much as I am by the results that they see.

I am grateful to be surrounded by smart, creative, and genuinely awesome people at Hello! Texas. Their enthusiasm, drive, and determination is what keeps me going. I am proud of how far we have come in such a short amount of time, and I am so excited to see what our future holds. We had some great opportunities this year, and we couldn't have done it without a few special people:

The days that I take the greatest pride in are the ones our clients trust us enough to go big and go different. A great result often makes an amazing outcome look easy. For those on the inside, we know just how much goes into making the very best events come to fruition. A successful event is the perfect combination of understanding the client's outcome expectation, hard work, strategic planning, partnership, and pride on everyone's part. 

During a recent program I stood on a balcony watching guests experience a great evening event. The response that evening from our client was exceptional. Everyone involved—from the client's team, our team, and our amazing vendor partners—really nailed it. It's nights like those that really make me grateful to be part of such an amazing company and team. Being privileged to experience this type of successful outcome on a regular basis makes me one of the luckiest people I know.

Backyard Backstories with South Florida’s Kimberlyn Flores

Kimberlyn Flores

Let's take a tour of Fort Lauderdale with Sales Coordinator Kimberlyn Flores!

Kimberlyn's definition of "One Perfect Day" in Fort Lauderdale is enjoying brunch while overlooking the intercostal on a bright sunny day. She was born in South Florida, so as Kimberlyn says, "This will always be my home!" She's passionate about finding all the cool new breweries popping up in Fort Lauderdale, and if fishing is your sport, you'll be happy to know that the fishing capital of the world is only about 1.5 hours from the city (Islamorada to be more specific)! If you're in the area, the macaroni and cheese from NY Grilled Cheese Company in Wilton Manors is a "must try."

Next up for Backyard Backstories, we'll be heading to Washington, D.C. to get the ins-and-outs from Account Executive Kerry Sauber. See you on November 22!

I am grateful that every day I have the privilege of being a teammate to 21 incredible individuals. I am so proud when customers and suppliers alike comment on how happy the Las Vegas group is. I am grateful that these people choose to come back day-after-day, even when the hours are long and the stress is high. Each and every person in the Las Vegas office is an integral part of our success and I am grateful that not only do they know it, but that our customers get to feel that. Thank you Hello! Las Vegas. You are the BEST in the business!
