Overview of the Company

Get Your Ducks in a Row!

Two talented, experienced and trusted event planners have united to create Ugly Duckling Productions, Winnipeg's most innovative management company. Rose Passante and Karen Mott have managed a diverse and challenging range of events, festivals, conferences, street parties, parades and awards ceremonies. Between them, they share over 60 years of experience in the business.

Here's what they've learned
It's all about the client! The planning process is invisible; it's the client that gets the attention and the shine. Deliver the project on time, on budget. That's clarity.
Events that work do so because they are fun, entertaining and educational, but mainly they're fun. That's creativity.
Smoothly planned events result from building alliances with the best, most positive people and services available. You must know who's best and how to find them. That's experience.
Even though the pressure and the scramble are overwhelming at times, at the event all the client sees is calm and control. That's professionalism.
Successful event planners work efficiently and creatively with everyone; they love diversity. That's ingenuity.
Reputation is paramount; creating imaginative events effectively and consistently results in a positive reputation. That's excellence.

Ugly Duckling Productions is offering to put all this knowledge and skill to work for you planning your next event. Rose and Karen would like nothing better than an opportunity to turn what they know into what you need. They enjoy challenges, just look at their resumes.

Their diverse creative backgrounds, familiarity with the Winnipeg market and its resources, and enthusiastic attention to detail means Ugly Duckling Productions can skillfully handle your project from the original brainstorming session through every planning stage to the completed event and post-project assessment.
