The dynamic Ellen Walker is a true professional in every sense of the word. Her level-headed enthusiasm has been instrumental in the success of fundraising, promotional and marketing programs in both the academic and corporate communities. Ellen’s credentials are demonstrated thru focused leadership and strategic thinking and planning. Working with Ellen creates positive experiences for all concerned and I’m always looking for an opportunity to include her on my team.

I have worked with Ellen, event coordinator, on several projects, and I can attest to her skills of organization, creativity and dependability. She gives attention to details that make a function successful and enjoyable for all participants.

Ellen Walker generates enough energy to light up a small city. Brimming with ideas, she consistently produces a wow factor in every project. A broad influencer, Ellen's magnetic personality creates a confluence of opinion and a floodtide of results. Two thumbs up!

For the last three years Ellen Walker has been producer of our very successful fundraiser held at the Arlington Hotel each September. She has managed all aspects and details of the event in a complete and professional manner. She is a dedicated project manager who takes care of program details prior to and following the event. She will produce a program that will deliver a memorable experience which includes open communication, adherence to schedule and project timeline.

I have known Ellen Walker for several years and marvel at her boundless energy. Her organizational skills are unequalled and because her enthusiasm is so contagious, one ends up saying "I want to get involved also, what can I do to help?". She is someone you definitely want on your team.

Ellen Walker's continued support and organizational skills benefiting the Jazz Society efforts in fund raising have been successful and increased our membership. Her innovative ideas and motivational abilities have energized our members to participate in presenting the Joy of Jazz fund raiser of the Jazz Fest as performers and contributors. It is notable that she contributed her talents and abilities to the Jazz Society for several years as a volunteer board member and was awarded the “Volunteer of the Year” award in 2007.

I had the pleasure of working with Ellen in the planning of three special events, held in two days for almost 200 people. She was organized, thorough, flexible, detail-oriented and incorporated all of our contributed ideas into excellent presentations which earned rave reviews.

With her outgoing personality and interpersonal skills, she made what may have been an overwhelming experience, fun. I would highly recommend her for the planning and production of any special event.

Ellen Walker has done a superb job in organizing and promoting an ambassador group in support of the Arkansas School for Math Science and the Arts. She is very competent in taking an idea and making it come to life! Ellen then organized and directed a very successful fundraising event for the ASMSA., the first one ever. She has organizational and social skills that are outstanding. We would certainly hire her to put together a function /event for us.

Congratulations on a hugely successful ASMSA "kick-off" gala. Thanks for letting me be a part of such a memorable and worthy evening and for putting together an event everyone left feeling proud to have been a participant.

The FANTASEA Dinner Series that you designed and produced in our Sea World exhibits were nothing short of spectacular. The enormous amount of creativity and detailed elegance that you brought to this project are impossible to describe, so I am pleased and grateful to have all the photos that document the beauty and great fun that our guests enjoyed. I love reliving the magical nights in the Japanese Garden, the World of the Sea, the Shark Exhibit and the Penguin Encounter and am hard-pressed to select a favorite of the four. Thank you for your hospitality genius, your vision, your energy and your amazing event-designing talent. You have created and produced our most successful fundraising effort to date.

I just wanted you to know that we really appreciate your time, energy and talent that made our 10th Annual Fall Dinner such a great event. All your hard work in decorating the William D. Evans really paid off - I heard plenty of compliments about how beautiful everything looked. We were also impressed at the lengths you went to maintain the Southern theme of the event, including the four "Southern Belles" who made the guests feel so welcomed. Thank you for exceeding our expectations...well done!
