"We cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done over the last couple of months to help make UNICEF Changemaker such a huge success! We greatly appreciated your flexibility and knowledge as our team navigated the virtual event space for the first time. We could not have done it without you.
Please thank the whole team; we recognize we threw a lot of new questions your way in preparation for the event and really appreciate you helping us work through everything!"
"During such a challenging time, and despite going virtual, HSO Productions helped us have our best year ever, providing such great advice along the way. On the night itself we actually doubled our auction and significantly increased the individual giving. The feedback was incredible!”
"As we planned our first virtual fundraiser, we were navigating uncharted waters, but HSO Productions were able to not only help us reach, but surpass our financial goal. The event was fantastic, and the excitement of our audience could be felt through their comments in the chat box - as well as through their donations!"
"Fort Ticonderoga was delighted to partner with HSO Productions to develop our first ever virtual Ticonderoga Ball. They provided crucial strategic guidance as we developed our plans and made themselves readily available to our team throughout the process. The Ball was a smashing success far exceeding any gross or net goal ever achieved in the past 27 years. Bravo!"
"Despite all of the unknowns this year brought, having HSO Productions on board gave us confidence that we would be able to fundraise successfully in a virtual environment. They assisted us in the planning and the execution of the event, especially the fundraising moments, which were engaging and impactful. Harry's onscreen segments gave our virtual gala a live element that contributed to what many of our guests told us was the best virtual event they attended this year!”
"HSO Productions are consummate professionals – delivering the planning and homework required to deliver a seamless, authentic, and successful virtual event. Thank you!"
"HSO Productions was also an integral partner in planning the 2020 hybrid gala, where attendees were both in-person at the concert hall, as well as streaming live from the safety of their home.
During the appeal, Harry's poise, style, enthusiasm, and quick wit helped the Philharmonic far surpass its gala fundraising goals. He efficiently, seamlessly, and simultaneously connect with a virtual and in-person audience – a real challenge when you don’t have the typical feedback from a live audience – crucial to achieving our event revenue goal!
We look forward to partnering with HSO Productions again for our spring gala."
"Even virtually, HSO Productions captured the audience and makes them WANT to give! Those who were skeptical about our virtual event loved watching because Harry made it fun and exciting!
HSO Productions also had a huge impact with the guidance and advice given before the event which lead to success. That included meetings with our Board and event committee, setting goals and providing tips on how to increase attendance. HSO Productions walked our team through action items and pushed us to do the effective preparation to make our event beyond successful!"
“Harry [through HSO Productions] was in one word - electric! He captivated and engaged our GLOW Gala guests with charisma, humour, and infectious energy!”
"We were thrilled with Harry's ability to raise significant funds during our annual Gala’s program; it was energetic, heartfelt, witty, and professional without being pushy. His expertise and suggestions changed the way we look at our evening program timeline, making the ask more meaningful to our donors. We were so pleased with his engagement with the audience and his results, that we will be booking him for next year’s Gala! ”
“HSO Productions were instrumental in guiding us through our first virtual event, our milestone Gala this past November. We knew from our past experiences with them that it would be so helpful to have their expertise. HSO Productions are professionals that that study the current landscape and adjust to maintain high standards of fundraising and to always provide incredibly engaging experiences for audiences; yes, even virtually. With their help we had an outstanding virtual gala!”
"Working with HSO Productions was an absolute pleasure. Not only did they offer sound advice, but they were genuinely excited about our mission and took the time to understand our organization. HSO Productions provided excellent suggestions and on the night of the event Harry's charismatic energy kept our audience engaged. Thank you!”
"Venturing into the virtual event space for our school's annual Spring Benefit was concerning, to say the least. However, pre-event consultations by the HSO Productions team coupled with the event day energy and charisma of their founder, Harry, ensured Harbor Country Day School raised a record-breaking amount of funds and created a sense of community we hadn't seen since before COVID became a household word! Thanks for making our Virtual 'Mask'erade a smashing success!"
We would not have put on a virtual event this year without HSO Productions there to guide us through the process; they were essential to our team's success. Leading up to the event HSO Productions provided us with real-time, and ever-evolving data to inform our decision-making, built trust with our Board, and on the night, exceeded expectations.
