by Vivian Menefee, President and Executive Planner
Juz Do It Productions is an event planning and production company; we are event planners and producers. This service company was founded by me, Vivian Menefee, to satisfy my life-long passion of creativity and design of social settings. As a child, I always imagined perfect settings that I could design on a small scale to fulfill the many entertainment needs of my family and friends. As a teenager and very young adult, I attended many charitable and business events; I partook of the ambience and grandiosity of these perfectly designed venues and superbly orchestrated events. Many of the venues were prestigious hotels; the entertainment was very professional. It was my feeling that in order to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill my passion, I needed to gain experience in this industry and obtain academic training.
I started working in the entertainment industry in Atlanta Georgia; there I served as a promoter, marketer, artist developer and road manager with independent record labels. My experiences included radio, retail and concert promotions. Having gained the necessary experience in that industry, I sought out my next experiential task – the hotel industry. In the hotel industry, I spent over 10 years in hospitality. I worked for the Swissôtel, and the Ritz-Carlton, serving in various capacities; these capacities included concierge manager, catering & convention services coordinator – then promoted to manager of that department. I was honored to receive two Malcom Baldrige National Quality Awards, an award signifying performance excellence. The experiences gained in the entertainment industry and the hotel industry, combined with my academic training was the catalyst that prompted me to move back to my hometown of Houston and start my own business; this would capstone my experiences, while fulfilling my passion. This is the story behind Juz Do It Productions – “where every event large or small is a production.”
I also am a licensed Massage Therapist, Massage Therapy Instructor and Massage Therapy Continuing Education provider.
I am a member and past VP of Programs and Education for the International Special Event Society (ISES), The Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
Though I started the company, I have some very notable partners and consulting associates.
