Mrs zur Strassen worked extremely hard, and reliably brought the production to completion within the given time frame and budget. She is wellnoted within the film industry, very well organized, confident and flexible. She reacts to unforeseen developments in a very quick and effective manner. She accomplished her tasks to our fullest satisfaction.

Thanks to the excellent work by Creativity in Action, the reception celebrating the 100th anniversary of Christ Church, the German Evangelical church in London Knightsbridge, on 28 November 2004 was organised to the full satisfaction of all involved. Amongst the guests were Prince Michael of Kent, Georg Friedrich Prince of Prussia, the German ambassador Thomas Matussek, the mayor of Westminster, the trustees of Christ Church, George Mallinckrodt and Harald B. Lamotte, as well as bishop Rolf Koppe from the Evangelical church of Germany.

Thanks to Creativity in Action, the event was a full success. Its director, Andrea zur Strassen, handled everything with enthusiasm and professionalism. Her organisational and communication skills as well as her vast experience of similar events came into their own. We also profited from her huge network of personal contacts and were particularly impressed by her understanding of the specific demands that a church has and by her ability to deal with various restrictions, e.g. budget limitations. For all similar events, we will always go back to Andrea zur Strassen and Creativity in Action. Should any member of our congregation or any of our affiliated organisations need the service of Creativity in Action, we will wholeheartedly recommend it.

By recommendation, Actics chose Creativity-in-Action to arrange the soft launch event of our web community. We were not disappointed! Creativity-in-Action takes full responsibility, leaving us only to worry about getting ready for the event, which in our case not happened before a few minutes before. Without Creativity-in-Action this would have been impossible.

Behind the Buzz…

The creative force behind Creativity-in-Action is international film-maker Andrea zur Strassen, who has turned her lens toward creating memorable experiences for clients. What got her started?

In writing her master's thesis at Otto-Friedrich-Universitaet in Bamberg, Germany, Andrea got to thinking about how to re-create the 18th century reading room for the 21st century—a sort of Noel Coward meets big brother type of world. Out of this musing grew Andrea's own social networking group called The Nomads—a monthly meeting of people on the move, like Andrea, who has grown this idea into a collection of 1000 international members based in the UK. This woman really knows how to fill a room! This experience has inspired Andrea to create unique events for her clients.

She has worked with such varied organisations as the National Gallery, UBS, BMW and even for Chinese TV. What's the secret ingredient? Well, Andrea herself, of course. You'll get that feeling when you meet her—she's passionate, creative and knows how to bring a buzz of energy into every room. This multi-talented individual is also multi-lingual, speaking her native German as well as English, Spanish and even Hungarian.

But pulling off a great event is more than just a one-woman job. So, as every good social networking butterfly should, Andrea comes with an entourage of producers, directors, event planners, caterers, logistics managers, branding and design experts and others, depending on the specific requirements of each project.

And if Creativity-in-Action isn't able to meet your needs, we'll just tap into our network and point you to someone who can.
