Professional Pre-Production and Onsite Stage Management for Conferences and Events

A Full-Service Corporate Event Producer Overseeing your Presentation Content, Staging Aspects and Onsite Production

For your corporate event production, Purpose Productions provides direction of your general sessions, manages your breakouts and oversees all aspects of the live presentations onsite at venues across the United States (or VIRTUALLY). Clients rely on the Purpose Productions team to make sure the show runs smoothly. Well in advance of being on show site, the Executive Producer prepares for the event— getting to know all the segments and presenters, creating cue sheets, and managing and distributing your show media. Once onsite, your sessions are rehearsed with the audiovisual crew from a technical standpoint, to keep all of the moving parts of your large-scale production in check and just as you envisioned them from early conception.

Whether you are hosting a corporate event, annual conference, retreat, or national convention, your corporate event producer provides the expertise and experience to manage your pre-production elements as well, including script development, custom graphic design and video production, custom entertainment and music, and coaching services for your selected presenters.

Over the past 25 years, founder Melissa Barber has managed event, video, and digital interactive projects for dozens of Fortune 500 & 1000 corporations. With 15+ years in corporate media production and three decades of music and theatrical experience from both sides of the stage, Melissa welcomes the opportunity to serve as a consultant for purpose-filled events and productions. Her professionalism has impacted national organizations, institutions, and corporations in the religious, retail, automotive, financial, pharmaceutical, medical, museum, science, educational and theatrical markets.

In a society where so much work of all types is done independently (whether at a home office or in a cubicle) it is imperative that people gather together at live events. We are relational beings and can find renewed energy via live interaction and sharing with others whether at small meetings or large conventions.”
