“Rachel Elliott is in the top 1% of the incentive industry. Her response time to our needs is amazing. She calls back immediately and truly cares to find the right DMCs and destinations for our clients. She truly is amazing.”

Mark Loo

“In my 35+ years of operating incentive groups, I found that what separates Rachel from the rest of the field is her attention to detail and follow through.  Rachel consistently worked both sides of the aisle with the DMCs and my company to insure that the services needed were conveyed completely, on time, and on budget.  She is extraordinary!”

Highly Recommend

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Rachel for many years. During this time, she grew our relationship substantially. By proving herself time and time again to be a wonderful strategic partner, she gained any and all business that I had for my internal clients. Her follow through, proactive nature and organizational skills gave me confidence to refer her to all of my colleagues. I would highly recommend Rachel.”

John Dirba, CMM
Company Recruiter & Regional Vice President

“I’ve worked with Rachel over fifteen years as a planner at two direct sales companies. This is an industry where incentive programs and conventions present their own unique challenges.  Our attendees are top producers and independent business owners and recognition is a huge factor that drives everything we do.  Our goal is to make our attendees (many who are world travelers) feel valued by offering them a 100% custom experience they could not book on their own. With Rachel there is absolutely no sense of hand-off abandonment once the DMC contract is signed. Rachel excels at selling and enabling the vision and has a remarkable superpower of staying aware of the minutest of details from program inception to completion. She understands that for an incentive program to be successful, it requires engagement with an audience that extends way beyond attendees, to include downline teams, potential distributors and customers, and really the entire industry. I recommend Rachel without hesitation to anyone in the direct sales channel. She has the relationships, experience and knowledge to ensure the delivery of exceptional events that are guaranteed to take a life beyond the event dates to become the stuff of company legend.”

Well Versed In The DMC World

“Rachel represents her clients zealously and always has your back. She is very thorough, quick to respond to all communications and stays involved to whatever extent is requested. Having been in this industry for many years, I could easily go direct to DMCs that I know personally, but working with someone like Rachel who is well versed in the DMC world gives me and my clients an extra layer of quality assurance that I certainly appreciate.”

A Friend

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Rachel for more than 15 years as a planner/client.  I knew the minute I met her that she was a person/professional I wanted to have in my circle. I’ve had the honor to work and learn from her.  She defined and emulated what all vendor partnerships should be, one of mutual respect and success for all involved. Through her guidance my enthusiasm for the global meetings industry grew.  I can honestly say that her influence, guidance and advice fueled my passion and confidence to pursue my professional goals. I’m thankful for women like Rachel who graciously give their time to others in support of personal and professional growth with no motive but friendship. I’m pleased to call her my friend and mentor.”

One Of A Kind

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Rachel for over ten years. Rachel truly is one of a kind. Whenever I have met one of Rachel’s clients for the first time I feel the ease and excitement of being with a good friend (from the start).  That’s because we already share a common bond and connection through our appreciation for Rachel’s diligence, attention to detail and her ability to connect us with one another on a personal level too.  As a supplier, you don’t just get a blind referral from Rachel you get a warm introduction with tons of relevant information, history and insight that makes working with her clients so enjoyable.  Rachel’s longevity in this industry shows her commitment, dedication and passion not only for her clients but for the meetings and events world as a whole.”

Aubrie Jones, DMCP

“I have worked with Rachel for many years and she has absolutely helped me grow as a service provider.  She freely shares her knowledge and solution driven strategies, so everyone wins!  This makes Rachel a valued player on our team and it keeps the ball in play and moving forward.  Her connections and introductions are always on point, and her customer loyalty is unsurpassed!  There is a notable difference in how we approach our proposals when Rachel is involved, as we are confident in our ability to win the business as the guess work has been removed. Not only does this give us the freedom to be creative from our first proposal but also allows us to negotiate well with our vendors, as we have a clear vision of what each program needs.”

Brava Rachel!”
