Meet the Mentor

Hi, I’m Kaitlin Donaldson

Throughout my career, I’ve received a lot of inquiries on how to break into the events industry.

Questions have come in from business professionals like recruiters, legal advisors, and accountants, as well as students, past interns, and peers. 

There were always patterns across each conversation. Some wanted to press the reset button and pursue events, but didn’t quite know where to start. Others were trying to advance to the next level in their careers, but were struggling in this competitive field. Many wanted to find opportunities, but weren’t sure where to look. 

During each discussion, I shared the nuances of my own professional journey. I provided insight into the events industry, and recommended resources and tools to best position people for success. But, I always felt there was so much more information to cover, and not enough time to share. 

I developed this mentorship program to bridge the gap. I want to help you succeed in the events industry.

Mentors were crucial to the first few years of my career, and remain a prominent part of my professional life, even to this day. I lean on them as resources, and for the same wisdom and guidance that I hope to offer to you on All the Best Moments.

This Mentorship Program provides access to the same actionable steps that I took to get to where I am today, and opportunities to succeed. It’s not a fast-track to the finish line, it’s an investment in your future.

Take the next step towards reaching your goals, and join the All the Best Moments Mentorship Program today. Your journey starts here!

“I met Kaitlin while interning for Jennifer Zabinski Events and at the time she was an Event Planner and Executive Assistant. At times is seemed liked she did it all; managing clients, schedules, and article submissions. However, she handled it like a professional. It was great being able to accompany her on site visits, sit in on client meetings and take notes, or have a one on one conversation any time I had questions about the industry. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and gave me the opportunity to have a hands on learning experience.”

courtney anderson elliott

In addition to her sage advice, Kaitlin’s embodiment of an exceptionally skilled professional served as the greatest example. She had a solution for any and everything that arose and I’m honored to have had her as a mentor and role model that I am still in contact with to this day.”
