Spotlight: MindBody at Piedmont Park

With its signature mix of natural aesthetics, historic beauty, and modern interiors, Piedmont Park’s Greystone was the perfect setting for MindBody and their 2019 Regional Sales Kick Off. The wellness-focused tech company learned about Piedmont Park’s Conservancy venues from their marketing team and were quick to secure their winter date.

This was a big meeting for MindBody. The event would both recap the East Coast Sales team on 2018 accomplishments, as well as showcase goals and upcoming changes for 2019. Tina Palmer, West Coast Sales Administrative Assistant, lead the planning and coordination. She needed a venue that could go the extra mile to help her host a successful event from out of state.

“Chelsea Dahl was my favorite! Planning events from across the country is extremely difficult, but Chelsea made it seemingly easy. Since I had never seen or used the venue before, she was my eyes and ears. Throughout the entire event planning process, she was helpful and accommodating and was able to adapt our many changes before and during our event!”

The event went off without a hitch! Golf cart shuttles began early in the morning, bringing visitors on a short ride through the Park to the venue. Upon arrival, guests enjoyed breakfast fare by Carlyle’s Catering and sipped coffee while admiring the views of Lake Clara Meer from Greystone’s waterfront terrace.

“The views were GORGEOUS, and the building was unique and historical! The Piedmont Park Conservancy staff was extremely helpful and easy to work with,” says Palmer. “My team LOVED Piedmont Park! They were very impressed with the views and history behind the venue.”

MindBody normally hosts sales-related events such as kickoffs, company training sessions, team building activities, and happy hours. When asked if they would return to Piedmont Park for an event, Palmer replied “Yes, I would love to come back! The Piedmont Park Conservancy was very easy to work with and made destination planning very easy.”
