Our Founder Samantha Hickson established Yellow Door Productions to apply her extensive experience in major event management and event software platforms to help clients in a rapidly changing world.
She has worked in partnership with innovators and leaders such as Google, AWS, Salesforce, SAP and TEDx to deliver events in new and better ways.
Yellow Door Productions draws on a team of best-in-class experts and network of production studios and facilities to run events of any size.
Samantha is great to work with. Highly professional, calm under pressure and consistent in her communications and delivery.
I reached out to Samantha because I had heard about her event tech skills and asked her to support The Centre for Civic Innovation with production of our Civic Tech: Tech for Social Impact event as we pivoted to virtual during Covid. The event was designed to be highly interactive, stretching the functionality of the virtual meeting tools available, and involving two panels of technologist from three continents and several cities, including an opening speaker from the World Bank.
Samantha skilfully managed every challenge that my team and our tech provider threw at her with ease. It was a real pleasure to work with her and we'll definitely do it again.
The Centre for Civic Innovation
Due to COVID we were forced to move our bi-monthly Sales Leadership breakfast Forum online. We contracted Samantha Hickson and the team from Yellow Door Productions to produce and direct our last two online Forums. What a professional she turned out to be going above and beyond to ensure successful events.
We run our events with four speakers and a Q&A over 90 minutes.
We didn’t understand how much work needed to go into producing such an online event - it turned out so much more than our experience in producing it as a breakfast in a venue.
Samantha and her team took control in planning and directing all activities in the lead up and on the day. She designed the event to boost engagement, maximised the capabilities of the online platform and provided guidance on the variety of event styles available to us.
She was calm, adaptive and supportive. She was a true partner through the process.
We had incredible feedback from our team, the speakers and the participants which was largely due to the wonderful work by Sam and the Yellow Door team. I would be happy to recommend them for the production of any business event.
