Rene has recently relocated to Minnesota from Hermosa Beach, California bringing with her over 18 years of event, sales and meeting planning experience. She has worked with corporate clients such as Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Audi, US Department of Energy, City of Irvine, to name a few. Her experience in sales and events along with her new love of the Minnesota lifestyle makes her a great addition to the Ruttger’s Team. Rene resides in Breezy Point with her husband Chris, between them they have 3 children and have the cutest white Labrador named Zeus! As part of her new Minnesota lifestyle, Rene enjoys boating on the Whitefish Chain, golfing (this may be a strong word for her efforts, ha!) and celebrating the 4 seasons.

In my last blog, I talked about a resort working together to create beautiful music. Music has such an important impact in our lives. A sad song reminds us of someone we lost, a happy song reminds us of a celebration, and a love song reminds us of someone important in our lives.
How is music important when planning a meeting or event? The right music can set the tone to enhance your theme. Working on a sales rally, chose upbeat high tempo songs to play during breaks. To encourage learning, play classical music to allow concentration. To add drama or flair to a presentation or announcement, find music that builds to a crescendo. For receptions, add calming music to put people at ease, which will allow for more conversations and networking. Bring in live entertainment to end a successful program on a high note.
As you are designing your program or event, think of music and be inspired. Keep a song in your heart and in your agenda to see what new energy it can bring to your group!
