Caroline Cook and Shannon Moore are the Meeting Ninjas. They are working behind the scenes making things happen and always appear out of nowhere handling any situation or to greet everyone by name with a smile… - Marc Phillipps
Caroline Cook grew up in hotels… literally. Her dad worked in the hotel industry and took his family all over the world; from St. Maarten to Seoul, South Korea and Caroline loved every minute. So doing programs at a far off locale for days on end is no problem for her. Knowing how hotels operate kinda runs in her blood.
So this world traveler got a BS in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management from Clemson University (Go Tigers!) and started her career at Kiawah Island Resort. She did everything from Front Desk, to property management to accounting, all of which was adding to her skills in customer service, budgeting, and scheduling. Oh and she met her husband there… but that’s another story.
After Kiawah Resort, she worked for a local Event Design Company to design Corporate Team Events, but fell into Event Design. She designed events all over Charleston and beyond. Her main client was the fabulous Charleston Place Hotel. They said, “well, you design beautiful events for us. Why don’t you work here?” She said yes… and designed and produced countless events all over Charleston for Corporate Groups for the next 9 years.
Along this journey, she had two adorable girls which kinda changed everything. Those little nuggets are worth spending time with, so she left a job that she loved to start a company that will support her passion, talents, and travel bug spirit. FYI- Birdie and Boe are the girls middle names and a reminder everyday of why she started this journey.
Shannon Moore grew up partially in Ohio and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, learning the finer things in life from her family. Coming from a strict father with the nickname “the Colonel”, she honed her organizational skills so much she should write a book.
She attended the College of Charleston where she gained a BS in Science and started her career off at Wild Dunes Resort working her way up to National Express Sales Manager. She received she praise that she was wooed away to Charleston Place Hotel where she continued as a National Express Sales Manager for 9 years. Her hotel contract knowledge, customer service skills, and contract negotiation abilities are impressive and a huge asset to the team.
Her organizational skills and negotiation abilities come in very handed on a daily basis as she has elementary school aged twin boys and a loving successful husband… who she met at Charleston Place.
With their combine hospitality skills and experiences, it only made since for them to join forces.
And here we are….. Birdie and Boe Events…
