From “You Had to Be There” to “You Have to Hear This”

This article was originally posted on Anna Marfo’s blog. We’ve all said it, and I’m sure many of us have fallen victim to it. A friend, family member or colleague comes to us with a story they’re eager to tell. They start strong (or not, that happens to), but the story starts to fall apart as […]


Laughter Through Tears, Laughter Through Fears

This article was originally posted on Anna Marfo’s blog.   My face still tight and salty with tears, trying to negotiate nearby luggage and an airport dinner of tacos and rice, I clumsily fired off a text: I just cried on a plane.

What’s Your Story? During Red Sox Opening Week, one of our clients contacted us and asked if we could help them plan a baseball themed event. Located in the heart of Boston, there was no outdoor space to have a cook-out, until the loading dock became the perfect location.
