“I worked with Melinda and Sally when they were the event managers for The World Future Society’s Annual Summit. This was a major production based in Washington DC with a global attendee list with high expectations. Attendees expected an event that communicated innovation, thought leadership, forward thinking, community, dynamism. From core logistical elements of negotiating the hotel facilities, to setting up the rooms, décor, activities, staffing logistics, materials.  Melinda and Sally demonstrated incredible commitment, professionalism, creativity and attention to detail. They were moreover, a pleasure to work with, even as the intensity levels and pressure ratcheted up. I would unhesitatingly recommend them and would work with them again in a heartbeat.”

“The PMA is incredibly lucky to have a meeting planner like Melinda Wunder. She has been with us for many years now, and has cultivated close working relationships and friendships with our staff, board, vendors and sponsors. The kind of personal touch that she has developed over the years with so many people in our group is invaluable! We know that Melinda is always keeping an eye on the bottom line, negotiating the best possible deals, and looking for ways to increase efficiency and save money, while delivering a first class event. I would hate to think of producing our event without her!”

“Melinda Wunder is a genius planner. I’ve attended nearly a dozen events she’s organized, and whether it’s been a small, intimate gathering or a convention that sprawls across multiple floors, everything goes off without a hitch. The hallway conversations are invariably about how her receptions and parties are full of unexpected and marvelous surprises. Ms. Wunder’s events get remembered.”

“Melinda, I was always particularly impressed by your organization of the conferences. They were not merely efficiently organized, but great fun and most enjoyable. You did such a good job that an incredibly high percentage of the members attended them and I suspect it was some sort of record as a percentage for any membership organization.”

“Melinda attended her first convention (IMMS) when she was just 12 years old. By her mid-teens she was helping plan the social events. After UCLA graduation, she came to work for me, totally running all aspects of our conferences, conventions and seminars. By her mid-twenties she was in business for herself…and soon became the Number One independent meeting and event planner in the property and casualty insurance industry. She is still Number One.”
