Staff Spotlight: Chelsea Anderson
By Jordan Klotzle
Verdical Group’s Staff Spotlight series highlights the incredible contributions that each of our team members make through their expertise. The series is also a great way to delve into what our team members do on a day-to-day basis to mitigate the climate crisis.
Meet Chelsea Anderson, Verdical Group’s Senior Partnerships and Events Manager! Chelsea manages Verdical Events, the event-planning branch of our company, which hosts the annual Net Zero Conference and helps our clients to produce the most sustainable events possible.
Chelsea earned her B.A. in Communication and Media Studies from Chapman University and has been with Verdical Group for almost four years. Along with our great team, one of her favorite parts about her job is that there are “a lot of moving parts” each day, allowing her to enjoy the flexibility of her role while getting to work with many different organizations.
As Senior Partnerships and Events Manager, every day may hold something different for her, but much of Chelsea’s role includes business development and helping our team grow. This might look like creating partnerships with other organizations, securing sponsorships or speakers for our Net Zero Conference, searching for event opportunities, or working on an existing client event. Chelsea also helps keep an eye on the future through strategic planning for the growth of our company and team.
Chelsea appreciates that her work helps directly contribute to addressing the climate crisis in multiple ways. Planning and hosting the annual Net Zero Conference is a major component; not only are the education sessions and speakers enlightening with regards to climate and the green building world, but the Verdical Events team also has the chance to walk the walk of sustainability through the meticulous sourcing of responsible materials for the conference.
Chelsea’s work with other organizations and nonprofits helps expand the reach of our sustainability message. Planning sustainable events for our clients gives Verdical Events the chance to educate more people across industries about the importance of sustainability and how to take steps within their own organizations to become more sustainable. She shared, “I really like putting a lot of effort into something and then seeing the successful outcome” of a fruitful partnership or a smoothly-run event.
Amongst many other partnerships that Chelsea helps manage, Verdical Group is a 1% for the Planet member company, donating one percent of our annual revenue to organizations that help fight the climate crisis each year. Chelsea’s role with Partnerships & Events is one of the many ways our Verdical Group team is helping lead the way to an equitable, sustainable future for all people.
