"If you want to create an extraordinary event experience Diane Brisk should be the first person you should call. Diane is hands down, one of the most knowledgeable event professionals in Chicago. Diane not only has an amazing eye for design and detail her attention to logistics is just outstanding.
Diane is a true problem solver and team player its never about just her piece of the event puzzle she is always thinking about the bugger picture. Diane and I have worked together on many events and always makes my "event vision" in real time better than I ever thought it could be."
Linda Kingsley, Director of Catering Sales at Wolfgang Puck Catering
RIDICULOUSLY TALENTED!! and The Connoisseur of GREAT Service!
Few people have the opportunity to write about someone who is not only great to work with, but also a talented vendor in the Special Events Community and an even greater mentor. I've had the pleasure of working with Diane since 2001. Throughout this time we've partnered together on many events and have been each other's client.
Diane is truly a gifted professional in being able to create the most luxurious event designs out of nothing. Her insane artistic and sales talent are unparalleled to anyone I know.
I am always particularly impressed by Diane's ability to handle the most toughest clients so effortlessly. She is that perfect balance in being able to command a room and get people on board with ideas—even people who were initially on completely different pages.
There is ONLY ONE regret I have when it comes to Diane Brisk... and that's because I couldn't bottle her and take her with me when I move to Colorado. Anyone would be incredibly lucky to have Diane in their back pocket! I look forward to the day where we work together again on another project.
Carlo Stuart, Regional Sales Manager - Landry's Restaurants
"Time and again, Diane has proven herself as a trusted collaborator, vendor and client advocate and a partner whose vast experience I hold in the highest regard.
One of her best attributes is her tone, whether she’s interfacing with me and my clients or her management or event set-up crew, she has the ability to customize her message and delivery so that it is understood, valued and respected. Her years of experience in this industry give her a solid understanding of event design, planning and production. But more than that, she knows when not to settle, when to push-back and when to dream ever bigger.
She is one of the most tireless and dedicated people I’ve ever worked with. Good enough isn’t in her vocabulary and rest assured you will get what you expected on point, on budget and on time.
All of that, and she has a street-smart sense of humor that has a way of leaving her clients at ease, often in high-pressure situations. Personally and professionally, they don’t come any better than Diane."
Mike Underwood, President of Underwood Events
