Kori brings to Eatertainment Events & Catering a wealth of experience as she takes on the role of Director of Events and Catering, a natural progression of her remarkable career in the event industry. Her expertise in catering, as well as event production and large scale logistics serves her well as she leads Eatertainment’s talented team of event managers who make each of their 1,700 events per year run smoothly.

Originally from the East Coast, Kori’s background in theatre led her into events where she found her true passion. In addition to the hundreds of events she has managed for clients ranging from Audi to Xerox (and everyone in-between), her proudest moments include her work on the Much Music Video Awards, The Globe and Mail’s 125th Anniversary Bash and the Opening and Closing Galas for the Toronto International Film Festival.

When Kori is not busy running Eatertainment you can usually find her jamming-out on one of her antique guitars!

Originally from Bogota, Colombia, Nataly brings her larger than life attitude to Eatertainment. From becoming a professional squash player at the age of 15, and holding academic excellence throughout her educational career at Cafam University studying Hospitality and Tourism, she only strives for greatness.
