Sales and Marketing Consultant
--Wedding, Event & Hospitality Industry
I’m here to officially dispel the notion “if you build it, they will come.” Business is tough and sales is an active process that requires a sophisticated skill set and constant attention.
After years of successfully navigating the wedding and special event industry, as well as the retail and hospitality world, I am here to help others understand how to elevate their business, get more sales and make more money. Whether it's your first year in business or fifteenth, you may be an entrepreneur or an employee, we all need help from time to time.
When I'm not overseeing the daily operations of Kate Ryan Design and The Floral Creative Co., you can find me educating the industry through my guest articles, podcast interviews and speaking engagements.
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.
