“Shire House just had a very successful 1st Annual Ring of Community Luncheon thanks to the guidance and direction of Karen Jackson of Envision This! Productions. Karen led us through the months of planning and up to the actual event day fluidly and effortlessly. We look forward to working with Karen again to plan and direct our future events.”
— Liz S. Kane, Founder and Executive Director, Shire House Inc.
“I started a new marketing role with Family Giving Tree and was fortunate to have Karen already in place organizing three events with short term deadlines. All three events were high profile for us, with key attendees from prominent local sponsors and corporations. Having come from Silicon Valley high tech, I’m used to an extremely high level of professionalism, style and attention to detail. Karen delivered on all three fronts, and the events made a great impression on our guests! We will definitely work with EnvisionThis Productions in the future.”
— Larry Loper, Director, Marketing Communications, Family Giving Tree
“Karen has worked with us on several events both large and small. Most recently, she planned and executed the Women of Impact fundraiser with over 800 guests. Every detail was flawlessly executed. Everything from registration to dessert was organized and exhibited Karen’s signature. She always insures that her client’s expectations are exceeded.”

“Our 18th Annual FESCO Shuffle (Walkathon) was a well-organized and smoothly run event, thanks to Karen Jackson, from Envision This! Productions. Our goal was to engage and educate the community about family homelessness, increase sponsorships and individual/group fundraising, and ensure a fun event that everyone could enjoy, whether they were an infant in a stroller, a senior with a walker, or a family walking their dog. We were thrilled to benefit from Karen’s years of experience and expertise in organizing and implementing this event, and she met every expectation and built a foundation for the years that follow.
What we appreciated most about working with Karen was her ability to jump into this project, coordinate all the logistics, including social media and elected officials, keep volunteers engaged and prepared for their designated tasks, and deliver the expected results and then some!”
— Joy Vail, FESCO (Family Emergency Shelter Coalition), Hayward
“We hired Karen to partner with us in the grand re-opening of our Pilates studio after moving to a new location. Karen addressed a number of details across the board, from procuring promotional products to coordinating day-of-event festivities. In addition to her excellent organization and follow-through skills, she is very professional, and a joy to work with. I would recommend Karen to anyone who wants to engage with a professional in orchestrating a carefree, successful event.”

“I have worked with Karen Jackson on a number of fundraising events and activities over the last seven years, including walk/runs, expos, luncheons, and parties. As a graphic designer who is brought in to work on both web and print collateral, I appreciate Karen’s incredible organizational skills. These events can often be challenging as various pieces of information come from different sources and must be masterfully integrated for effective communication and presentation.
Successful events can only be achieved when the leader has the larger vision in mind, and interactions with the various service providers coordinated down to the very last detail. Her ability to smoothly integrate the many players and pieces — via email, in-person meetings, and conference calls — is key to success. I am always pleased when Karen engages me to participate in executing these events: I am confident that my efforts will fit seamlessly into the bigger picture, and I know she will provide exactly what I need, in the most efficient way possible.”

“I have worked with Karen on a variety of events over the last 10 years and have found her to be incredibly efficient, effective and hard-working. She excels at designing a plan, then populating a staff or set of volunteers to achieve her goals. As an interior designer, she calls on me to help design and execute decor to match her vision for the event. It’s a pleasure to work with someone so tireless in her loyalty and commitment to all projects she undertakes. Her energy and motivation invigorate all who work with her.”
