Dr. Cicely Mitchell“Four words…Joye Speight is AMAZING! Joye has worked with The Art of Cool Project for four years as our exclusive event planning expert for our twice-monthly emerging musicians After Hours Concert Series  and The Art of Cool Musical Festival in Raleigh-Durham, NC. During this time she has proven herself to be a master planner, one that is definitely emerging as a leader in the Triangle. Working with a budding nonprofit startup such as The Art of Cool Project has its challenges. Joye remains flexible, organized, and passionate enough to face these challenges head on and maximize opportunities to overcome them. She’s a people person giving special hands-on attention while exercising good time management skills which is a difficult balancing act, yet she does it with ease. I highly recommend Joye for your next event. She’s the COOLEST planner in the Triangle.”

Joye has the perfect demeanor for anyone needing a planner for their event.  Virtue Event Planning & Consulting, works hard to make things happen. Most planners can prepare a task list and plan for you, but Joye and her team are also very energetic, stylish, cultured, and sweet. They ensure that all the little design details and cultural elements are perfectly done. Working with The Virtue team will ensure you get to just enjoy yourselves rather than be concerned with logistics and vendors. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Joye and Virtue Event and Planning!”
