Mary Anne Chambers

I have known Carole Adriaans for about 15 years and have participated in several events that she has organized. Carole is passionate about perfection. She is obsessed with the details that ensure successful, memorable events that meet the highest standards of professionalism. An additional advantage that Carole provides is her background in Protocol which ensures that proceedings involving public officials are conducted as they should be. Hosts of events that Carole organizes are able to focus on their guests while Carole takes care of everything else.

Warm regards,
