Speaker Bio: Elizabeth Woldman
Elizabeth Woldman began her sales career while attending St. Francis College in Brooklyn, New York. While maintaining her standing on the Dean’s List, she was employed as a full time as a salesperson at JFK International Airport in the Duty-Free shops. It was here where she learned to love the art of proper customer management and appreciation.
After graduating from College, she secured a position with EF Hutton & Co as a Sales Assistant on the trading floor. Working for some of the busiest traders in the industry allowed her to finesse her multi-tasking skills, as well as understanding what it takes to “go the extra mile’’ for her customers.
After being introduced to the world of Events Planning & Catering by a close friend, and securing a sales position with a large Manhattan company, she knew that she had found her calling. By successfully planning the menu’s and event logistics for some of New York’s largest companies such as HBO, The Food Network, Macallan Scotch, Louis Vuitton and The Big Apple Circus, Liz was becoming a true force on the events scene in New York.
After meeting her husband Adam in 2005, they teamed up to become both partners in life and in the catering & event business. Together they opened their own business which offered boutique catering and specialty baked goods to some of New York’s largest companies. In 2008, after the recession hit their business extremely hard, Liz went to work for a large New York City company selling and managing everyday catering, as well as creating a full-service event planning concept for the company.
After 20 years of success in the event industry, Liz & her husband decided to give up the Long Island winters and move to Southwest Florida to make their mark on the Sunshine State. She continues to successfully work remotely for a catering & events concept in New York City and is currently setting up a new “start up” events company in Sarasota Florida.
