Moving into 2021 together! TSE Staffing welcomes new Opportunities & Jobs.

We have now moved to 2021 together!  I am inspired for 2021 and the new opportunities and jobs coming our way.  TSE Staffing is excited to bring new Meetings, Conferences, and Client Projects to all current and new TSE Staff.  There will be changes we will infuse to ensure all are safe and staying healthy during all TSE Client Programs and Events.

Globally, we are beginning in receiving the much-needed COVID Vaccine.  So many lives have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  So many have needed to pivot in their lives, be it work, financial, family, health, and more.  Some changes have been tragically filled with loss and sadness.  Some changes have been filled with new beginnings and direction.  Some changes have brought new life globally with babies coming into our world.  In my world personally, I had 3 new babies born into our family in 2020.  It brought loving excited feelings to my day when there was so much pain and loss erupting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

On another subject, which I am apprehensive to bring up, however, it has dominated our daily lives for many months.  As we move into 2021, I pray and hope as a nation, and globally, we can embrace everyone as equal human beings.  With the violence that has spread throughout our entire world and the political fighting, and harsh words spuing over social media, friends, family, and gatherings;  I pray for healing and world peace.  We all need to work together and respect one another.

As I have mentioned, TSE Staffing is anticipating new Client Meeting programs, Conferences, and Events that will begin in planning and development, most likely in the 2nd quarter.  TSE Staffing will post all new programs on our company website:  “Job Opportunities” tab.  This is where all can view and apply for new client programs & events.  For current reoccurring TSE Staff, you only need to apply and submit to the email listed on Job Posting.  For NEW individuals who would like to join TSE Staffing and begin working with our group, apply and submit a Profile on our TSE Staffing website.  All profile submissions are free and easy to submit.

Finally, I close with hope and encouragement that our industry is coming back.  Thru so many conversations I have had with my clients during the halt of our industry, clients and their customers are wanting to come back together in-person.  We are all missing the in-person socialization, gatherings, and communicating in-person!  Soon to be people, it is coming!

What I have missed the most in 2020?  I have missed speaking with the many people nationwide I have worked with for many years.  I miss the organized chaos each day with our many client meeting programs and events working in 5 time zones.  I miss checking in with each and everyone working on our client meeting programs and events.  I miss everything about what TSE Staffing built and provided to our TSE Staff and our Clients on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly basis.

I am excited to start working again in the near future.


TSE Staffing is happy to say goodbye to 2020 – Happy Holidays!

What a year 2020 has been!  Here at TSE Staffing, we are all happy to say “Goodbye to 2020!”  This year has been unpredictable, unprecedented, and tragic for so many on so many levels.  Thousands of innocent people, families, businesses have experienced sickness, loss, fear, business closures, not knowing which direction to take.  As a new day arrives each day, we all wake up with more political battles, sickness, poverty, and hunger in the USA and Globally.  It’s a horrible dream that never ends.

At times I stay silent.   I am afraid to say too much not to offend another or cause controversy.  I believe many are walking carefully not to upset anyone due to the riots and anger which are still prevalent and on-going.  So many are exhausted, emotionally, physically & financially.  We are now entering the 9th month of enduring the COVID-19 pandemic.   We will come out of this Bigger – Better – Stronger!  There is light ahead of us soon.  Keep the faith!

TSE Staffing is still here!  We are surviving and reaching out to those companies needing our service in the near future.  We have to believe, stay focused, and be positive about our future.  We are ALL innocent and did not cause this tragic destruction of our lives as we knew it.   We must all be open to change, as change can be good.  We all have a destined plan for our life and need to embrace it now.

We enter into 2021, with new hope, vaccinations coming to all, government help for people & small businesses, new administration for new directions, and a promising outlook and love for all mankind and life itself; what a wonderful thing!  I can only reflect on this year as so much change, sadness, love, togetherness, and reflection on our lives and the lives of others.

Please wear a mask for 100 days.  If we can do this together we can reduce the outbreak of COVID-19.  We can save so many innocent lives.

Lastly, I want to send love and thanks to all those tirelessly working to keep our daily lives moving forward:  Medical Staff / Police / Military / Retail workers / Technology / Food Manufacturers, and more.  Question – where did all that Toilet Paper go?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!  Please be safe, wear a mask, the light is coming soon!

Much Love from TSE Staffing, we will look forward to working with you in 2021.

Facing reality of future Client Meeting Programs

This 2020 year has been a year unlike any other in the meetings, events, and hospitality industry. After navigating Client programs that have been canceled or postponed, Event & Meeting planners are hopeful that 2021 will bring back business and some semblance of normalcy.   Event business owners, agencies, and third-party suppliers went from a thriving successful year in 2019 to a full ground stop of ALL work in March.   Many are scrambling for survival and trying to find new resources to help many survive during this crisis.

Realty of Client Meeting Programs:
I am beginning to face the hard reality of what the future may hold for Client Meeting programs.  For example, we are facing a Historic Wave of Hotel Foreclosures due to restrictions placed from the CDC / COVID-19.  Many of our client meeting programs were scheduled and placed in beautiful hotels nationally.  Our Client Meeting programs consisted of 75 up to 750 clients attending these meeting programs nationally.  All our clients and the client meeting programs stopped so abruptly.  Never did I think I would be sitting in my office in September-October with no client meeting programs scheduled.

We are entering the last quarter of 2020 year-end.  There are no client meeting programs scheduled in-person, only virtual.  We ALL must restructure and “think outside the box” to reinvent our company services.  Virtual client programs & events are great for safety however, nothing can replace the in-person meetings while greeting clients, interacting with real people versus screen/virtual and simply seeing smiling faces.  I believe in our industry we all miss the hustle and craziness in planning & executing our client meetings & special events.  We all miss the social interactions!

Virtual Client Meetings & Events:
On a positive note, my company has moved in the direction of planning, developing, and launching Client Virtual meetings & events.  TSE Staffing is capable of inviting all attendees directly, assist, and train all clients/attendees needing direction to sign-on to virtual meeting platforms.  It can be frustrating for many of those who have never used Zoom, or Microsoft Teams, and so many others.  Once you understand the platform, it is very easy to use and maneuver.  TSE Staffing can assist Meeting Planners and Companies to ease the stress in creating a large client virtual conference, meeting, or special event successfully.

My promise to myself and the many out there nationwide waiting for my Job Postings to begin.  I will stay strong, stay positive, and believe we will come back bigger, better, and stronger!

Covid remains & here comes a new month!


Covid remains






We are now entering a new month!  This 2020 year has been the most agonizing, health fearing, anxiety-ridden time.  I would have never thought back in March I would be flying thru many months anticipating my future.  The COVID pandemic has forced so many to rethink, reevaluate, and reinvent our lives, work, and family.  It’s not that easy to do!  I struggle each day wondering if I am doing enough, searching for answers, what do I need to do next with my business.  I question my actions, which I have never done prior to COVID.

I am grateful for what I have.  There are so many others who are struggling, fearing homelessness, losing family members, losing jobs, and needing food to feed their family.  I remind myself each day how grateful I am for everything I do have.  I stay strong and positive every day!  I tell myself “this all will pass”.  I am anxious to regain my somewhat normal day.  I miss my normal workday.  Have our “normal” lives changed permanently?  Has our “normal” daily schedule now become the “new normal”?  I am not sure I like the “new normal”.

I challenge myself to reinvent myself and my company, restructuring everything.  I look for new and old passions.  I search for new possibilities that will help to sustain my company.  Each day is a struggle to come up with new ideas.  Each day I push fear and the unknown away from my thoughts.  It can be exhausting!

On so many professional levels, I miss working with a variety of people across the USA.  I long for the interactions and hustle of each business day.  Managing over 200 client meeting programs per month can be exciting, filled with changes, long days, but loving every minute of it!

I continue to worry about the 100’s of people I came into contact with each day, each week, each month.  I wonder if they are okay and surviving thru the COVID pandemic.  I hope and believe we will be back up and working with the awesome people I work with on our client meeting programs.

There are a number of small and big businesses still struggling.   Conventions, large tours, gig industry, music & entertainment, corporate meetings & special events, sporting venues, meeting planners, and the list goes on.   Many companies are still not able to move forward with plans, due to the COVID restrictions.

We shall all stand strong, bigger, and be better thru this crazy 2020 year!

Corporate Meetings & Special Events Are Changing!

Corporate Meetings and Special Events

Welcome to TSE Staffing Blog!  Changes in Corporate Meetings & Special Events…

TSE Staffing is creating a weekly Blog to communicate with our nationwide staff.  First, we miss everyone and look forward to getting back to work.  What will changes in our Corporate Meetings & Special Events look like moving forward?  With so much uncertainty, we must try to reinvent ourselves.  We need to implement new protocols and services for our current clients & new clients, in order to keep clients, staff, and attendees safe. (masks, hand sanitizers, and clean and sanitized area at all times, etc…)

New Meeting scheduled:
I am excited to announce we have our 1st meeting working today – 8.26.80 – Wednesday in NY.  TSE Staffing team is thrilled to have this meeting working after 5 months of being down.  TSE Staffing averaged over 200 meetings per month.  This 1 meeting brings me hope our industry will slowly come back soon.

When we entered 2020 I was excited with all the meetings scheduled ahead.  TSE Staffing had all our client meeting programs scheduled and staffed thru the end of April.  When COVID hit unexpectedly, slowly the meetings started to cancel.  By the middle of March, our office received notification that ALL meetings were canceled thru June.  As we enter September, the majority of our meetings are still on hold.

Groundhog Day:
Today, August 26th our meetings remain canceled due to the havoc and destruction COVID has and continues on our industry.  I feel like I am living in “Groundhog Day”!  I wake up each day and say out loud out the day, date, and month.  I tell myself every day to say positive and strong, it will be okay.

Outlook & Future:
I’ve never had this much concern over my company’s existence in 23 years.  The unknown of what lies ahead for our industry or my company is a daily emotion.  I have great empathy and concern for all those who depend and work with TSE Staffing.  I hope all are okay.

My promise to myself and the many out there nationwide waiting for my Job Postings to begin.  I will stay strong, stay positive, and believe we will come back bigger, better, and stronger!
