What They Say About Us

We have had the privilege of working with some great organizations and people over the years, working on a range of meetings and events. We love to leverage our knowledge, experience, and industry connections for the benefit of our clients. But don’t take our word for it. Here is what some of the people we have worked with over the years have had to say about us.

Carolyn Clark

Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications, PCMA

Kristen is the consummate professional. Her amazing calm demeanor put our speakers and partners at ease. She easily executed on Plan B, C and D and seamlessly prepared our team when speakers came unprepared and didn’t show up on time. Our attendees would have never guessed how many time we had to ‘punt’ because of her ability to think ahead and plan for every possible scenario.

John Browning

Managing Director, Unit Trust, Incapital LLC

I have worked with Kristen in numerous capacities over the years and recently utilized McGargill Meetings & Events for an extremely important client meeting because I knew she could be counted on to lead our team to a successful event.  She was quick to offer suggestions to make the event better and handled all the details including facilitating communication even among our own team.  Kristen’s expertise, communication and organization was key in the success of the event and we will be using McGargill again soon.

Eileen Kowalski

Project Manager, PNC Bank

I have used Kristen McGargill’s services for the past three years, for event and meeting planning.  Timing and quality of the work have always exceeded my expectations and everything is communicated in a professional and timely manner. I consider Kristen a partner who has proven to be creative in problem solving, reliable in time commitments and overall consistent in meeting my expectations. Kristen’s services and personal attention to details is extraordinary and more than I could have expected. Excellent planning services all the way around.​
