Staff Spotlight: Sabree Lateef
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 Sabree Lateef, Verdical Group’s Partnerships & Events Coordinator! Sabree graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.A. in Communications and has been with Verdical Group since May 2022. In her role with our events branch, Sabree assists in planning and executing our annual Net Zero Conference, as well as all other client events. Additionally, she supports business development and growth by identifying new event clients and sponsorship opportunities.
A typical workday for Sabree involves conducting extensive research into a variety of topics. On the planning side, she investigates vendor and venue options for our Net Zero Conference and our client events, seeking out LEED-certified venues and sustainability-minded vendors who align with Verdical Group’s values. By encouraging vendors to make more conscious choices, such as using sustainable bamboo tableware instead of single-use plastic, Sabree helps to educate more individuals and companies within the events industry on the importance and accessibility of sustainability. She also contributes to business development by searching for potential new clients seeking out sustainable event planning services.
As one of the largest green building and zero carbon conferences in the world, our Net Zero Conference provides a unique opportunity to bring together like-minded individuals in an environment that encourages collaboration and the spread of great ideas.
“I handle speaker management [for the Net Zero Conference] and work with volunteers that are truly dedicated to safeguarding the planet,” Sabree shared. “Bringing in different people who are passionate about fighting the climate crisis is really important to my job.”
Sabree’s favorite part about working at Verdical Group is being able to see all of her careful planning come to fruition and culminate in a successful event. She highlighted the process of putting in the effort to bring a client’s vision to life and reaping the reward of watching event attendees enjoy the small, thoughtful details that set apart a sustainable event. She explained, “I’m results-driven, so seeing the Net Zero Conference come to life after months and months of hard work was really exciting.”
