Testimonials

Green Fern is an excellent addition to any team – whether you host events regularly, or once in awhile. Emily made sure our Signature Events ran smoothly, negotiated preferable rates with vendors, and helped manage my team on site. She has a flair for creating a unique experience for attendees, and does all of it while keeping things green! I highly recommend her and her company’s work. – Kathleen Baireuther, Executive Director, CleanTX

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the choice to hire Green Fern Events to help with the planning and production of our first high-profile event for Glasshouse Policy. Emily Kahn was a critical component to the success implementation of MobilityATX’s Town Hall Meeting held at Google Fiber. Not only did she provide leadership advice throughout the entire process, she was highly communicable, reliable and a pleasure to work with.” – Francisco Enriquez, Co-Founder and CEO, Glasshouse Policy 

“N3P Productions would like to especially thank the women at Green Fern Events: Emily Kahn, Katrina Godinez, and Tiffany Harelik, for their indispensable contribution to Herbalismo!. These women have worked tirelessly to organize and execute, not only the logistical quagmire of a first time conference, but to uphold their goal, and ours, or making Herbalismo! a truly green, zero waste event. Thank you, Emily for your deep well of patience with three inexperienced women as we sought to bring our collective dream into reality. Your guidance and confidence carried us along when we were not able to find out way. We extend our heartfelt thanks to you and your staff of amazing women and look forward to a continued partnership for many years to come.” – Neely Ashmun, President, BAH Design

“It was obvious to us during our first meeting with Emily that she was the person we were looking for to coordinate our themed “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” wedding. She offered so many great suggestions and helped us make decisions that led to the perfect wedding day and achieve a zero waste event. Her organization and assistance on the day of the wedding allowed it to be better than we expected and with no complications. We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. It was great to have someone helping us who shares our values on creating a more sustainable environment.” – Suzanne and Jairy

“Emily is a great event planner who expanded our National Hydrogen Association Conference and Expo, greatly expanded industry sponsorship and was warmly received by all whom she came in contact with. She is driven by results but she also adds energy and joy to the overall enterprise.” – Jeff Serfass, President, Technology Transition Corporation

“Emily is highly creative and a great team player. She learns the content of the project she is working on and is one of those people who can communicate equally effectively with a marketing assistant or a CEO. Emily is very professional and highly personable. Emily is a very effective marketer and organizer.” – Bruce Cole, President, McNabb Marketing Resources.

“I highly recommend Green Fern Events, managed by Emily Kahn for management of sustainable meetings/conferences, both large and small. I worked with Emily on several conferences of roughly 1,200 participants and she was integral in ensuring hotel/vendor contracts were executed, keeping colleagues and vendors focused on their responsibilities leading up to and during the events, and running flawless execution of the events. Emily has a solid background in event management and equally solid knowledge base of clean and renewable energy technologies and leading energy stakeholders” – Brain Schorr, Washington, DC

“Emily and Green Fern Events provided critical support and out-of-the box thinking for the last leg of planning for our wedding. Her positive attitude, creative ideas, and superb organization skills kept me focused on the wedding’s bigger picture. Most importantly this allowed me to take a step back the “day of” and let Emily and her team run the show. GFE exceeded my expectations by not only assuring me that things would be perfect, but by taking last minute initiative to troubleshoot key issues.”

“GFE helped me craft my green strategy to maximize the re-use or lifetime use of many décor elements for my non-traditional wedding. They even helped the venue by diverting 93% of our waste and personally delivering it to the compost and recycling centers the following day.”

“Emily’s endless energy, attention to detail, and ability to anticipate my needs and our guests was awesome. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to work with her again on another event!” – Irene & Bob (Married, October 15, 2011)

“Green Fern Events took care of the big picture as well as all of the small details.  Emily is both personable and professional, with a very calming and jovial personality which really helped reduce my stress level surrounding the event.  She was consistently and quickly available to me by email or by phone and was always very organized.  Everything came together perfectly. I wholeheartedly recommend Emily and Green Fern Events as people you can completely trust and depend upon to plan your life’s most special occasions.” – Dr. Lee Ann Grossberg

“Green Fern Events is not just another Central Texas event planning firm. It’s a kick-ass company run by a subject matter expert who loves life and leaves others feeling pretty good about their lives, too. And, no offense, but that should leave her local competition feeling a little you-know-what with envy.” -Charlie Fern, former White House speechwriter, Principal & Founder, Charlie Fern Ink, LLC
