Unique Event Planning Service

You're #TheSmartMarketer

You're a Corporate Marketing Manager

You’re a smart marketer and you know your stuff. You have created your marketing plan with events that are designed to deliver results. You’ve sorted your budget and aligned with Sales.

You just need a team to deliver on your promises.

When you need to generate results we help you deliver your promises as we act as an extension to your in-house marketing team, supporting you with behind-the-scenes, high-quality event planning & delivery that is built on 25 years experience in corporate marketing leadership roles.

From sales events to industry roundtables, from customer events to conferences, get planning and execution support, including PR, Comms and Lead Gen that puts ROI at the centre.

At Read the Room Events, standards are high, experience is world class and our secrets are priceless.

We know what it takes to deliver on your marketing plan, and we understand your pain

We know you are in the firing line.

As a Marketing Leader you need the best return on investment, including lead generation, from your events in your marketing plan.

We also know you probably have a lot of hoops to jump through. Perhaps the biggest hoop (and arguably the most important one) is the finance and budget approval hoop.

You may have used an event organising company before, and we are sure they did ok on the logistics and venues – if only they’d understood your business objectives and the politics a bit better….

We work behind the scenes

Working with sales teams on defining objectives, targetting audiences, creating content for sales and business events, and delivering value propositions that spark the imagination of buyers and influencers.

You can take our big brand operational marketing planning experience from the corporate marketing world, and use it to help you get tangible results while we work behind the scenes under your direction.


While you pull rabbits out of hats

We can help you to start right at the beginning, creating an event delivery plan  designing joined up communications, targetting your audience, getting them “aware and there” and squeezing value to ensure your budget is focussed on getting results.

Or if you are already all set up to go, but need a little more help with event delivery we can step in to manage the logistics and delivery plans while you push ahead with your bigger marketing plan.

Dorne provides a good blend of business acumen and pragmatism, with successful experience in Marketing Planning, External Communications Management, as well as Major Event organizer, at all times combined with a positive attitude, effective facilitator skills, as well as superb communications and documentation skill, both verbally and written.

Giorgio Heiman - Business Mentor and Coach, Geneva

I have had the pleasure of working with Dorne for about 4 years on different projects. She is quite a dynamo! She is well respected for her ability to manage multiple activities at one time and always with a stellar outcome. Dorne has the ability to work across multiple departments and level of staff whether it is the CEO of the company or an SE, both get treated with the same deference and respect. Once you work and meet Dorne, you will never forget the experience. Partnering with Dorne is always a pleasure.

Susan Wills QuamMarketing Manager, Riverbed

Dorne is an excellent manager (and motivator) of agencies and broader communications projects, with a strong eye for detail/budget and a clear understanding of - and empathy for - the role of agencies. The result is an effective team approach that takes a creative, ambitious and yet highly pragmatic route to delivering communications results, managing the competing demands of a complex organisation.

Jon Walsh. MD - WPR, Dubai

Dorne is impeccable in the management of our events and marketing matters. She strongly supports the Management and Sales initiatives as well as ensuring there is continuous feedback through to our clients. Dorne is a pleasure to work with and is always responsive to any query or question.

Jeanine OsborneFounder, SendEddy, South Africa

I've worked with Dorne for 7 years. She has a real can-do approach to marketing & PR. She understands the technology market, her company, and its objectives, but knows how to get things done on time, on budget and on message.

Stewart Baines - MD, FuturityMedia, UK

I have worked for Dorne for over 5 years on various events for Orange Business Service and I have found her to be an excellent organiser and great at logistics, particularly with the challenging role of dealing with the speakers at conferences and events and organising the team to meet the requirements of each event.

I worked with Dorne in organizing and managing a marketing event in Cairo. Her perception not only facilitates the job of her suppliers but also ensures that her clients achieve their tasks efficiently and effectively. Her professional personality is always combined with a pleasant and cooperative attitude which makes it a pleasure to work with her...anytime.

“No nonsense” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think of Dorne!

Dorne is a passionate and knowledgeable marketing leader, with a deep understanding of business and marketing strategies and a practical approach to driving results.
