Speaker Bio:
Megan Gillikin is a successful Wedding and Event Planning business owner at A Southern Soiree, Founder of the wedding planner education site The Planner’s Vault, Podcaster at Weddings For Real, and Mom to 3 girls age 7 and under!  Her two favorite meals are breakfast and dessert, and she loves dance parties in the living room with her husband and those 3 daughters!

Megan graduated with her hospitality degree and her MBA. After graduation, she earned her stripes in the hotel industry by working for Marriott for almost 5 years on the event operations/planning side in roles that lead her to her love of events.  In 2010, Megan left the hotel world and took over ownership of an existing wedding planning company in need of re-branding to remain relevant within the industry.  After 10 years of growing A Southern Soiree, Megan has established it as one of the most sought after, highly regarded event planning companies on the east coast.

She loves getting to know the inner workings of people’s personalities…so much so that she started a wedding industry podcast in 2018! That led to another passion, which is consulting with other industry vendors on growing their businesses purposefully!  Megan has a love for providing real, insightful, and tangible advice and wisdom on growing and sustaining a successful event business!

If you’re Myers-Briggs fans she’s an ENFJ, and a solid 3 on the Enneagram.  She’s ambitious, adaptable, and enthusiastic and her love for this industry is contagious!
