OLIVIA PILIP | PRINCIPAL Boutique Events    Born a bossy chatter box, Olivia has channelled that energy into a career centered around people and ideas. From Toronto, to Vancouver to Edmonton, she experienced a plethora of event marketing opportunities that eventually led her to the role of Director of Marketing at Edmonton power house Go Auto. Leaving the secure corporate world was a leap, but one she got passionate about. In 2012 she started her own company, Boutique Events and found rapid success. Even with this success, Olivia felt the constant push to expand her client events, seeing them as a chance to extend the brand’s reach. The evolution of Boutique Collective was a natural progression when she found, more often than not, clients needed help from many of her expert contacts beyond the set up of catering and decor.
