Kate Gilbertson wins Rising Star at the 2016 MPI South Florida Annual Awards and Installation Dinner
Kate Gilbertson may be on the early side of her career, but she is quickly making a name for herself and getting the accolades to prove it! At the 2016 MPI South Florida Annual Awards and Installation, Kate was not only appointed to the Board of Directors as the 2016 Director of Education, she also was awarded the 2016 Rising Star Award!
Here at KE, we’ve always known Kate was a rockstar. She has been with the company for 3 years, beginning her DMC career as a proposal writer. Angie and Hillary, the company’s owners, couldn’t ignore her passion for the event industry or that saleswoman quality that she had though, so in 2015, Kate was promoted to Sales Manager for small groups.
With the promotion, Kate blossomed and success has come quickly. Because of her experience on the proposal end of the process, Kate’s knowledge of the local area means she is well-versed in what is new in South Florida and beyond, and clients can trust her recommendations. In addition, she is phenomenal at cultivating relationships with hotel partners, which become mutually beneficial as Kate becomes a go-to source for those hotels when their clients have last minute DMC needs.
Kate she takes every chance she gets to attend industry networking and educational sessions, becoming a familiar face with many of the local event industry organizations. She has a natural ability to connect with clients and industry professionals alike, easy to like and always available to brainstorm or jump in to help. Kate has proven time and time again she cares about doing her job really well and has an incredible drive, both to succeed in her personal life as well as in her career. Koncept Events could not be more proud to have this Rising Star on our team!
