“Creating a strong emotional connection with your clients creates loyalty. And, the great thing about client loyalty is when you have it, it never goes away.” — Maribeth Kuzmeski, MBA, PhD, founder, Red Zone Marketing

Showing clients you truly care is key to success: it earns trust, respect and loyalty. Client appreciation events are a wonderful way to do this. Supporting client wellness takes client appreciation to another level…one that your clients will never forget.

Creative Awakenings is a renowned, proprietary, art program that is a unique, ideal client appreciation event. As a bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul and Soul Models author, artist and creativity expert, I have only shared Creative Awakenings at the nation’s highest-end venues and in private retreat. This program provides your clients with a joyful, transformative, creative experience that culminates in their creation of a professional piece of art that forever reminds them of you.

Hosting Creative Awakenings is gifting your clients with something that they could only get if they paid tens of thousands of dollars and went to a luxury spa.

Events are 2 – 3 hours long and tailored for groups from 5 – 20. They can be customized for women only, couples and/or families and friends. Base prices begin at $50 per attendee. Ten percent of proceeds are donated to The Women’s Institute for Financial Education,

Clients and Guests will:

  • Awaken inborn creativity through a deeply joyful and healing creative experience

  • Understand the latest science behind Art Therapy and mindfulness

  • Safely process challenging emotions, decrease stress and anxiety

  • Create a high-quality piece of art that serves as a visual reminder of their journey

  • Discover tools for living a life of greater health, happiness and connection

  • Have a wonderful experience that they will forever associate with your appreciation of them.

Creativity adds value to just about everything: be on the lookout for “The Many Paths to Purpose,” another Creative Awakenings wellness appreciation event that shares groundbreaking, creative approaches to navigating challenge while discovering and enhancing purpose. This in-demand workshop was inspired by the incredible luminaries who I was privileged to interview for my Soul Models book, including Eli Manning, David Copperfield, Candace Lightner (founder of MADD), and Temple Grandin, among others.

From Candace Bahr, former owner, Bahr Investment Group, Investment News 2015 “Women to Watch,” co-founder and Second Saturday Divorce Workshops:

“Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs brought Creative Awakenings to my top clients as an appreciation event, and they loved it!

Not only was it a differentiator, it was a joyful, wellness experience that they talked about long after it was over. The art they made was beautiful, and it was wonderful to share this kind of special, intimate experience with them.

I also worked alongside Elizabeth at The Golden Door Spa, presenting a “Soul Models” themed week. This content is truly inspiring – and, Elizabeth has a special way of engaging the guests in an entertaining, informative way that is both transformative and memorable.

Elizabeth is a consummate professional and always comes fully prepared with a treasure chest of supplies, down to the smallest details. Her events are unique, informative and always uplifting – I can’t recommend her enough!”
