Katie Easley

Sales and Marketing Consultant 
--Wedding, Event & Hospitality Industry

​I’m here to officially dispel the notion “if you build it, they will come.” tbh, it's bullshit! 

If you build it, you better be ready to work for it!

After years of successfully navigating the wedding and special event industry, as well as the retail and hospitality world, I am here to help you! The business owner who is hustling 9-5 and grinding it out late night. I know what it takes and I understand how to elevate your business, get more sales and help you to make more money. 


I am a business driven, creative AF entrepreneur that wants to help you dream bigger and think outside the box. Is this you?  

About Me

Leading floral stylist and event designer Katie Easley of award-winning Kate Ryan Design & The Floral Creative Co. set out with one goal: to create joy for her clients. And she did just that, establishing Scottsdale-based Kate Ryan Design, combining her interior design background with her love of floral. In the following months, Katie quickly grew her small business, catching attention of the Society of American Florists, who honored her as ‘Marketer of the Year’ in 2012. This accolade launched her consultancy and since then, Katie has worked with small businesses throughout North America on their sales prospecting, growth strategy and client experience. Katie is a regular fixture on television, countless blogs and her design work can be seen in the pages of Grace Ormonde, Modern Luxury Magazine and the Chicago Sun-Times, among others. Her business savvy can be found on podcasts, blogs and in print with Special Event Magazine, Catersource, This Week in Weddings, Wedpreneur, Thrive Global, and many more.
