About Creative Visions
Creative Visions began in 1989 as a modest entrepreneurial venture by our founder and president, Allin Foulkrod. As the president of DECA, a national student group that aims to develop marketing professionals and entrepreneurs, Allin attended and spoke at more than 100 live and televised events. He personally connected more than 10 million people.
Allin learned what worked in events and, more importantly, what didn’t. In the process, he developed a keen desire to make a difference when audiences are gathered. Our first client decided to hire Allin before the company was formed, and when writing a check for payment, Allin didn’t have a company name. The client stated she wanted someone to help create a vision, and so began Creative Visions, Inc. with a mission to help people envision, design, and produce events that maximize human impact.
Today the company operates as a full-service strategic event solution provider; a vibrant organization whose mission is crystal clear. We are…“People Helping People Succeed.”
Nothing motivates our team more than to help key stakeholders drive the business, make planners look great, and inspire audiences in extraordinary ways.
Our core v...alues define who we are as a team and what clients can expect when working with us.
“Creative Visions is…a group of passionate professionals that work hard as a team and do the right thing.”
