But chatting with May Silvers, fellow event planner and educator, will help you avoid the rookie mistakes we made when we first started our businesses. May is passionate about keeping it simple, focusing on what you want and how to set yourself up for success.

Grab your coffee, grab your tea, let’s talk it out!

About May Silvers

May started her hospitality career as a food and beverage trainee at the Raffles Hotel, Singapore. It was there that she fell in love with the hospitality industry and decided to pursue her career further. She eventually worked her way up to Director of Catering and Conference Services and Director of Event Planning at several luxury hotels. In 2012, May decided to take all that she had learned and started her own event planning company, M2 Hospitality, building multiple 6-figures while shattering industry norms. Today, May is passionate about helping other event planners increase profitability, grow their business, and create on their own terms with Events4Anyone.
