Shari Schultz was born on Halloween night... If ever someone was meant to "party and celebrate," Shari certainly fit the bill! Add decades of experience in event management, marketing, public relations, sales and human resources and – BINGO! - you've met the successful owner of NEW DIRECTIONS EVENT PLANNING since 1990!!!

Check out our credentials! NEW DIRECTIONS is a long-standing member of the International Special Events Society and the National Association of Catering Executives, with years of membership in both Meeting Professionals International and the Association of Bridal Consultants. We are proud to be involved with the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village Regional Chamber, as well as other business organizations. Throughout the year, we attend industry trade shows and classes to keep apprised of the hottest ideas and latest trends, thus guaranteeing our clients that their events will be the absolute best possible!!!

NEW DIRECTIONS enjoys a wide array of clients: large corporations, small companies, schools, sports leagues, government agencies, and private individuals. On one end of the spectrum, our staff might create a unique celebration for a high profile rock star, while the next day we may coordinate a walk-a-thon to raise money for a non-profit organization. One weekend may be filled with bar mitzvahs and weddings, while the next is busy with corporate picnics and meetings.

What do you need from NEW DIRECTIONS? If you want our assistance with every detail, we offer full service planning and coordination: one stop shopping! If you have already put together some parts of your celebration but need our expertise to complete the picture, we are more than happy to step in and help out with the services you still need. If you have done it all but want a seasoned professional to step in to manage the event, our expert staff can do that as well. Our goal always remains the same: a memorable event and a happy client!
