Coming from an entrepreneurial family, running her own business was in Sharon Bonner’s blood. So, in the fall of 1988, she took the plunge into self-employment and opened the doors of Bright Ideas Event Coordinators Ltd. In the earliest days of the company, many events from a wide range of clients were successfully produced. But, after 18 months of being in business, it was clear the company had to find a focus. Sharon took a long look at her client roster to get a better sense of what direction to take. In the end, it was corporate events that stood out as the most stable event market. She had a vision and she began implementing it.
In 1991 she incorporated Bright Ideas Event Coordinators Ltd. and concentrated solely on corporate events. For the next 3 years, despite countless opportunities to go back to the small events such as weddings and private parties, Sharon stuck to her guns. Bright Ideas was to be first and foremost a corporate event coordination company. But there was a long road to travel. She knew that becoming an expert in the field would require hundreds, even thousands of hours of event coordination experience. And that’s exactly what she did…
Today, with thousands of successful events and a long list of satisfied clients and industry awards to be proud of, Bright Ideas is a successful Canadian event coordinator, with a reputation for attention to detail, innovative ideas, and a meticulous approach to staging events.
