A Neighborhood Vibe & Upscale Fare: No. 9 Park

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Ideas and Suggestions by the Corinthian Events Team

No. 9 Park, a consistent staple in Barbara Lynch’s Boston empire, sits conveniently on the edge of Beacon Hill.  Vanessa stopped in to validate its reputation and discover a few of the culinary treats served readily to locals at this neighborhood hot spot.

She left raving about this “classy neighborhood bar” where the servers are knowledgeable and friendly and the food is uniquely presented whilst also delicious.  Distinctive flavors accentuated the “comfort food with a twist” menu.  Determined an excellent place to impress a client, date or for dinner with friends, watch out No. 9, Vanessa might just become a regular!


CE’s Summer Outing

Corinthian Events Random Fun

With all the hours that we’ve spent planning the most fun of summer outings – it was time for one of our own.  Creative masterminds, Courtney, Mary and Jill planned a day of fun in the sun for the ladies and Rich starting with a Boston Harbor Islands excursion and ending with creative cocktails.  It was a blast!

Boston’s Best Cruises took us through the Harbor to George’s Island.   Look at that view – we work in such a great city!

Then it was on to the Boston Athletic Club to work off the fried food!  We started with a lesson from a pro and finished with a series of singles and doubles matches.

Corinthian’s New Faces

Corinthian Events - Boston Event Planning News

It’s on everyone’s mind – when can we officially say that the recession is over?  Though challenging to predict, it seems like things are looking up.  There are signs of a comeback all around us and in order to cope with the industry-wide increase in business, event and meeting professionals are looking to add to their teams.  In a study conducted by Sheryl Sookman Schelter entitled “Meetings Industry Hiring Plans for 2010,” Schelter surveys a group of meeting managers regarding their intentions to hire anyone new in 2010.   Findings were overall optimistic with almost 65 percent of planners maintaining the size of their operation or department and an even more positive 29 percent intending to fill new full-time positions this year.

In keeping with Schelter’s observations that there is “a tendency for hiring to remain flat until the volume of business increases on a consistent basis,”  we have added a couple of fresh faces to our team and are prepared for the upswing in the industry!  Read on to learn about our newest employees.

Laura Keeler

Laura joined the Corinthian Events team in December and is elated to be a part of such a dynamic organization.  After graduating from Colby College in 2007, she applied her Art degree to a position in the New York City art world.  A recent transition to both Boston and event planning brings on bouts of enthusiasm about the vivacious city, the energy and creativity within the industry, and the everyday problem solving that she is faced with.  In her time away from Kingston Street, Laura enjoys all things artsy, blogging, scuba diving, and homemade pesto.

Vanessa Childs

A Corinthian Events team member since March, Vanessa is enjoying working for and learning from the three talented, multi-faceted and fabulous partners.  With over seven years of experience in corporate meeting and event planning, Vanessa brings her negotiating prowess and grace-under-pressure attitude to the Corinthian Events team.  A Boston native, Vanessa can often be found practicing Pilates, cooking for family and friends, and traveling.
