Statement Event, for women in financial media, is typically an in person event hosted in New York City by Stefanie O’Connell and Emma Pattee. These two women bring together women in the media and personal finance space to create a community exclusively for women, by womxn.
I worked alongside Statement Event in 2019 to design the website, event promotional materials, and day of print materials. In 2020, amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, I provided thorough research for executing and maintaining an online-only event, pre-event content management, day of social media content management, engagement management, and social support, postmortem support, and a full analytical report covering a five-day outlook for their event sponsors, Capital Group.
In between events I help to establish sponsorship deck outlines, updates, re-designs, and completion of other important business development decks, and as-needed website updates or modifications.

Social Media Event Management
Day of Statement Event 2020 I arranged an eight hour social media management window in which I was solely responsible for posting, engaging with attendees, tracking analytics, re-sharing content from event speakers, and helping to provide contest entries to client to select prize winner.
Post-event I put together an extensive analysis for the client’s sponsor to review regarding reach, number of impressions, best performing content, how specific data points and facts were received by attendees, and the level of engagement and feedback attendees provided on social emdia.
Statement Event’s brand aesthetic is chic and modern. Transforming over time as trends and fresh developments in feminist temperament evolve.
Contextually, Statement Event focuses on bringing the cold, hard truth out in financial journalism and the quotes, subjects selected for events, and brand design reflect this informational perspective on money and media.

I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah at The Rainmaker Institute. Not only is she well-spoken and very knowledgeable in social media, she is a fantastic leader. She is always encouraging people to learn, grow, and challenge themselves – including herself. Sarah is constantly bringing new ideas to the table, pushing herself to think “outside the box” for our clients, and seeking new opportunities to advance clients in their marketing.
Hannah Ribotto | Marketing Operations Manager
Sarah was someone who first trained me when I first started at The Rainmaker Institute. I was so thankful I was learning from her as she was beyond friendly, knowledgeable and professional. It is so clear when you talk to her that she has a passion for social media and a vast knowledge of its ever changing aspects. She is constantly up to date with the latest trends in social media and Sarah is always determined to remain current by continuing to learn and be the best at what she does. Sarah has not managed me directly however, it is clear that her team loves, respects, and trusts her as their manager. She has been an awesome co-worker and a person that I can honestly say I would be comfortable and happy to work with again.
