Linda Pace has been serving the Events and Hospitality industries on Long Island for over 25 years.
Since 2007, she has been successfully self-employed as President and Principal Event Planner at “The Life of the Party”. Linda has a proven track record of producing a wide variety of corporate and social events during her career. In addition to events, she provides consulting services to Long Island-based event production companies in need of lead project managers, day-of event coordinators, bookkeeping services and administrative support.
Prior to her work at “The Life of the Party”, she held highly visible positions for the PGA Tour, Chez-zam Events and Fireworks by Grucci- finding her niche in the event market as an accomplished event planner, producer and project manager.
Linda’s diverse portfolio includes consulting in “Organizational Development”, a division of Human Resources management that focuses on evaluating the workplace and business model, identifying shortcomings, implementing solutions and affecting change.
A proven “Efficiency Expert”- she’s constantly striving to improve productivity and profitability across all professional platforms. Linda works closely with her clients** to fine-tune policies and procedures that include diversity and inclusion, in an effort to create a more cohesive and positive work environment.
** In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Linda offers virtual services from a remote office location, as well as in-person (following all CDC mandated protocols), so businesses can continue to operate safely.
With a keen eye for numbers (and a big fan of spreadsheets), Linda’s other talents include bookkeeping, accounts receivable and accounts payable functions. She also has a knack for digital archiving- helping her clients to organize their photo and video libraries for quick reference. Her passions include singing, photography, voice-over work and writing poetry.
Linda is a native New Yorker. She grew up in Hauppauge, NY and is a graduate of Hofstra University, having earned her undergraduate degree in Music and Vocal Performance. A two-time cancer survivor, Linda regularly continues to volunteer her time and talents to support various non-profit organizations and serves on the committee for the local BSA Scout troop.
Achieving work/ life balance is her highest priority. When she’s not “on the job”, in her spare time she enjoys spending quality time traveling and entertaining with her husband Gary and son Matthew, as well as with close family and friends.
Her personal approach to a happy and successful life- “If you keep a positive attitude and focus on positive thoughts, you’ll achieve positive results.”
