Testimonials

In the 10+ years I worked with Jaki Baskow while I was a corporate planner at Caterpillar, Jaki and her production team were always professional and produced our entertainment and production needs flawlessly. She was a joy to work with.

Renee Balaco

Caterpillar

I have had the good fortune and pleasure of working with Jaki Baskow over 25 years. Her creativity, imagination and total reliability has always made working with many speakers and entertainers easy, fun and fascinating. I cannot recommend Jaki and her services highly enough.

David Walker

Jadasu Holdings Inc/Walker Planning Assoc. Inc. Toronto

For decades, IBM’s Global Golden Circle was one of the largest and most prestigious incentive productions in the world of corporate events. For four years running, the Golden Circle’s we created at Strategic Events were the highest rated in IBM history. A large part of that success was directly attributable to the exceptionally talented performers, musical acts and world-renowned speakers that Jaki Baskow brought to those shows. Her personal relationships with so many of today’s most sought-after celebrities insured our audiences were continuously thrilled and entertained. She and her team were on-site at all times, managing the talent and seeing to their needs. All of which made my job, directing the show, that much easier. I truly can’t imagine doing that kind of production show without Jaki.
