An Industry Expert: Susan Phillips

Fluent in English, Canadian French and Brazilian Portuguese, Susan Phillips is no stranger to cultural diversity and is skilled at meeting the unique needs of the associations, non-profit organizations, unions, political organizations, companies and private patrons with whom she works.

Since 2002, she worked full-time organizing conferences, conventions, fundraisers, board meetings, retreats and other events for the Union of National Employees – Public Service Alliance of Canada. This position gave her the rich experience necessary to understand the needs of membership driven organizations, one of SGP’s areas of specialization. Susan has also worked for the Department of National Defense, an IT reselling company and various other organizations, learning the ins and outs of the event production industry. Having worked with clients locally and abroad on events varying in scope, there is no challenge her professional team cannot handle.

Committed to accommodating her clients’ guests, Susan works tirelessly to understand their diverse needs and exceed their expectations. She has extensive experience organizing events for participants with varied special needs, from accessibility issues to personal care requirements. Susan ensures that all participants feel included, that their needs are met and that they are able to participate fully. Susan’s events cater to all dietary requirements, accommodating vegetarian and vegan participants, those with religious requirements and individuals with extensive food allergies, so they can enjoy their meal with other guests.

If turnkey operations are not within your budget, Susan can train your in-house staff in all aspects of event organization, enabling them to execute varied tasks confidently during future events and reduce or eliminate your need to contract outside resources.

Under Susan’s capable leadership, SGP Conferences and Events Ltd. is gaining recognition in the event planning industry for its innovative vision and skillful, cost-effective execution.
