After receiving a degree in Business Administration/Business Information Systems from Illinois State University, Kamil Brady worked as a software developer for over 13 years. During these years, she gained a passion for planning events for family, friends, and co-workers. After loosing her job due to the 2008 housing market crash, she took this time to think about what she enjoyed doing, and how to turn that into a career. The answer had been in front of her the entire time: it was planning events! She took the next steps to turn this passion in to a career.
After taking various hospitality courses at Triton College, Kamil enrolled in Roosevelt University’s Hospitality and Tourism Management Graduate Program at Roosevelt University. While enrolled, she volunteered for various summits, networking events, and non-profit fundraising events. This experience lead to successfully planning and coordinating charity events, weddings, workshops, holiday parties, fundraising events, and more. With education, diverse professional skill sets, and planning events for a growing client list, she turned amateur event planning experience into a professional event planning career.
As founder and event consultant for AKB Events, she was able to create an event management company that showcases the principals she uses to create memorable events.
