"In an industry that is largely a constellation of small to mid-sized businesses, the work of Liene Stevens and The Splendid Collective can be the difference between "working in weddings" and operating a profitable business. The wedding industry is undergoing a major generational shift and when it comes to understanding the millennial bride, Liene is the expert, hands down." -- Xochitl Gonzalez, Co-Founder, AaB Creates
"You were a success! Every single person raved about your presentation, your witty delivery and the content." -- Donna Von Bruening, President, Savannah Wedding Professionals
"You ROCKED that stage...ROCKED IT!!!! Cannot wait to see what you do at The Breakers!" -- Rebecca Grinnals, Co-Founder, Engage! Luxury Wedding Summits
"22 minutes and you singlehandedly changed how I communicate and relate to my assistant . . . We are launching a new media project together this spring. We have reworked the sales process for my company and how we bring her on board as a designer for events (because she is a BRILLIANT designer). We are working together in a way that is already knocking my socks off. All of this was because you gave 22 minutes of insight that was beyond measurable to a few hundred industry peeps. Thank you." -- Kara, Love This Day Events
"Liene Stevens was one of my favorite speakers at Engage . . . I was completely fascinated by her talk. One of my goals for 2013 is to read as much of her research as I possibly can get my hands on." -- Nancy Ray, Nancy Ray Photography
"I want to thank you for helping me in my business. Being 41 years old, I knew that I was getting out of touch, and you've helped me understand the psychology behind how my customers think, which is definitely different from how I think, and I believe is helping me give my couples better service and an overall experience. I am booking weddings now, and am commonly hearing that they had gone to a competitor initially, and they feel so much better, or more comfortable with me. I am making an extra effort to use the skills you have taught me. Thank you." -- Maggie May
"Liene Stevens has single-handedly taught me more about leveraging and protecting my business than any other source, conference, workshop or media outlet I’ve come in contact with. Her vast knowledge and continuous education on the subject is what makes her an expert I trust every time. That, paired with her experience and understanding of the wedding industry, makes her a brilliant combination of strategy and smarts. Liene has the ability to leverage brands in stratospheres most barely scratch the surface of. With her, it’s long term growth, not fly by night or flashes in the pan, and I’m fortunate to continue to watch and learn from her every day." -- Harmony Walton, Founder, The Bridal Bar
"Liene Stevens is hands down the most knowledgeable force on social media and the impact that it has on today’s wedding and event industry. She not only is ahead of the curve on understanding the opportunities and challenges that it can create but just as importantly, does so in a thoughtful and strategic fashion. I consider Liene the leader of our industry on all things relates to new media – we are lucky to have this rich resource to guide us through this uncharted and constantly changing landscape!" -- Rebecca Grinnals, President, Engaging Concepts and co-founder of Engage!
