The Story Behind On Time Events.
The story behind On Time Events
My name is Bernie Funk and I started planning events as early as 2000 when I helped plan a cousin's wedding. I really had fun doing it and was overwhelmed with satisfaction when everything came together and I saw that people were having fun!
After that, I started helping others plan other events such as family get-togethers, anniversaries and theme parties.
One particular Halloween, I remember planning and hosting a costume party with music, good food and entertainment for roughly 40 people in attendance. It was a lot of fun to put this together!
In 2010 I decided to go professional and received my Event Coordinator certificate.
I started my own business under a different name but noticed that I wasn't really getting my name out there or recognized for my talents. So in 2016, I changed the name of my business to On Time Events, and started getting noticed. Since then, I have joined several networking groups and made a whole lot of new connections and friends.
In 2016, On Time Events planned and hosted Saskatchewan's first real Pet Expo in Saskatoon and were so successful that we continue to produce the show to this day. We have since expanded in Regina and are now planning the fifth Saskatchewan Pet Expo!
In 2015, I met my perfect match and soulmate, Valerie Hoeflicher, who was very supportive and encouraging and has since joined me in my quest to become one of the best Event Coordinator in the Province. We have also partnered with several other businesses and have built fantastic relationships, and have expanded the business. Valerie has since become a very popular Marriage Commissioner appointed by the Justice Department of Saskatchewan and I have applied to be a Marriage License Issuer. We recently hired Ali from the Foggy Lemon Development to be our web designer and Media Advertising Specialist and has been a great addition to On Time Events!
We don't only organize weddings and the Saskatchewan Pet Expo, we are also very happy to help you with anniversaries, birthday parties, trade shows, and pretty much anything else you need.
