About Us

Crescendo Events was created out of a passion for running events. It is our goal to create unforgettable experiences for every client, every time.

Kaitlyn Touesnard – President & Event Manager, Crescendo Events Limited

Kaitlyn Touesnard started Crescendo Events in Fall of 2015 as a side project while working full time at the Saint Mary’s University Entrepreneurship Centre. Ranging from a few small events to events with over 1000 attendees, she grew the business over the course of two years before finally branching out on her own full time in July of 2017.

Focusing on corporate and non-profit events, Kaitlyn works with clients such as the Canadian Nutrition Society, Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia, QueenPins, and of course, Saint Mary’s University. Kaitlyn’s passion is working with those who have an entrepreneurial spirit.

Kaitlyn has an array of qualifications that make her so great at what she does. She has a Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Entrepreneurship, minor in Psychology, and Human Resource certification. She also has Project Management Professional Certification. In 2012 Kaitlyn was named HSBC Woman Leader of Tomorrow for Atlantic Canada for her work with the Saint Mary’s University Enactus Team. She was also named Planner of the Year by MPI Atlantic at the 2019 Awards Gala.
