Become the company everybody wants to work for with events that nurture and reward your employees -

As all great CEOs know, there’s a real cost to losing an employee. The best way to help your business grow and thrive is to consistently retain happy, high-producing employees.

Of course, this can feel easier said than done at times. With deadlines always looming, new initiatives to roll out, and each employee’s work load already maxed, there doesn’t seem to be much room for fun and celebration.

That’s where we come in. We specialize in creating morale-boosting, wow-worthy events that are critical to ultimately growing your bottom line.

Hi, I’m Anshwa Lewis, CEO of Swalarue Events, and we’re not your run-of-the-mill event planning and design firm.

In addition to being fully certified in the field, I’m a Project Management Professional and Senior Professional in Human Resources with a background in Systems Engineering, I hold a Masters Degree in Finance, and I’m a former Army Officer who’s been deployed to Iraq, repelled out of helicopters, and jumped out of planes.

Let me just say, the stress of corporate event planning is nothing to me compared to all of that!

I understand your need to execute events that are unique, purposeful, on-brand, and within budget.

Whether you want us to fully take over, or collaborate with your internal department, together we’ll get it planned with passion and flair.

Because of your efforts our team had the experience we wanted to provide them. Here is what some of our employees had to say:

"We had a really good time, great turn out and it was a lot of fun!"

"Fun, family loads of smiles and good times, GREAT event!"

"Great experience, really brings the SG family together"

"Everyone is buying into our vision and culture here"

"Favorite part of the day was to see people in a different light with their hair down and being able to enjoy themselves at a company event"

"Ten out of Ten!"

I hired SwaLaRue Events to coordinate the prom for the high school where I teach. After the students narrowed down their theme, Anshwa ran with it and came back with some amazing ideas. The students were in awe and so were the faculty and administrators! I believe one of the most memorable highlights (there were many) of the evening for the students was seeing their names on the dance floor. The kids didn't want to leave! I heard compliments for weeks after prom. Thank you Anshwa and your team at SwaLaRue Events!

The goal was to bring everybody together and get them really excited about coming to our new building.

All the families came together and had a really great time.

"You have a gift."

I was amazed to see the variety of events, decorations, performances, catering, and setup for the grand opening of our new building. Tons of fun that seemed to go off without a hitch! Job Well Done!
