Jodi B. Katzman has been producing award-winning national and international events for corporations, television, sports, black-tie fundraisers and city-wide cultural programs for over 20 years. Her knack for bringing the “wow factor” to every event she manages has contributed to her success garnering repeat and referral business from world-class organizations in the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. Over her career, Jodi has produced events and marketing campaigns for clients such as Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, Nickelodeon, MTV, Blockbuster, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Sunkist and Snapple and created cutting-edge employee incentive and recognition programs for Avon Products. She oversaw program management, hospitality and logistics planning on the Beijing Olympics (for a major multinational top sponsor), the Atlanta Olympic Games (for Atlanta Olympic Broadcasting) and Super Bowl XLVIII. She managed talent scouting/booking and coordination of A-list celebrity talent, athletes, sports personalities, VIP’s and logistics for Billie Jean King’s Annual Salute to Women in Sports, Writers Guild of America Awards, Women's Funding Network Conference and Desert Storm/Columbus 500th Parades. In addition, Jodi has project-managed programming and production for the Bob Hope Memorial Library Dedication Ceremony, Macy’s Santaland, three Miss America Pageants, the Grammy Awards Celebration, two Presidential Conventions, World Archery Championships, Hong Kong USA Festival, Young Presidents' Organization Global Leadership Conference Social, Japan Amway Forum, four United Cerebral Palsy Telethons and nine films for Verizon. She has provided stage management, production and talent coordination services for award shows and specials including the Tony Awards, Grammy’s, Night of 100 Stars, Irving Berlin 100th Birthday Celebration, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Liberty Weekend Closing Ceremonies and the annual 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero. Jodi combines her competencies in program promotion, logistics management, contract negotiations, talent coordination and stage management to consistently over-deliver on her promise for a spectacular event. Her events frequently garner special awards and “best-ever” ratings from top management, sponsors and attendees and she has received over 100 letters of recognition and commendation. Jodi’s expertise is not limited to her ability to produce a memorable event. She has earned an equally strong reputation as a savvy and collaborative dealmaker, meticulous project manager and creative cost-cutter and she has saved millions of dollars for multiple firms by negotiating unprecedented contract terms, streamlining procedures and workflow and creating greater accountability for spending. For 18 years, Jodi was a “solopreneur” managing projects from concept through completion for dozens of clients. In between that time, she spent three years at Avon Products, as Manager of U.S. Events & Motivation, where she created the company’s first global celebration event, first-ever charter cruise recognition event and oversaw its annual conventions. Earlier in her career, she was Vice President of Promotions & Marketing at Fry Enterprises. Jodi has received numerous accolades for her work including two Telly Awards and Avon Products' President's Award, with the distinction of receiving the recognition after only two years of service. Jodi “eats, lives and breathes” production work. She has stage managed 50+ theatrical productions and events. She is a former board member of Women in the Arts & Media Coalition and a member of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and Emmy Judge, Women in Sports & Events, New York Women in Communications, New York Women in Film & Television, Stage Managers’ Association, a Guidepoint Global Advisor and a former Board Member/VP of the Village Light Opera. She is currently serving a third term on the College of Arts & Sciences Board of Advisors of the University of Hartford.

Jodi Katzman, director of events and production at JBK Productions, a media design firm, found herself in the midst of an involuntary digital detox a few weeks ago when her phone and computer crashed and her TV stopped working at the same time. She ended up using the downtime to reconnect with herself, old friends and the outside world. Now, she says, she can leave unread emails sitting in her inbox without feeling the urge to open them.

"Anytime I saw those bold emails that hadn't been read, I used to get a little stressed," Katzman said.
