On the Scene was amazing to work with for our recent program. The team took the time to really listen to my ideas and incorporate them into her overall pitch and execution. I felt confident that she had my back through the entire event. They were accessible and friendly – even with last-minute phone call requests and long conversations to help me think through options. I highly recommend On the Scene and will be working with them again soon.
