Event . Management . NZ

 We’ve been doing events for a very long time. Having worked with some of the biggest corporates in NZ and with over 15 years’ experience, it’s fair to say we know how and can do. We like to focus on what we do really well, and that’s end to end social, corporate and destination event management for all sizes of business and private individuals.  We also love sourcing unique venues in our spare time so your event has that WOW factor.

Why Cooper James?

We know how stressful event planning can be for our clients, and with each step of the journey we manage our stakeholders with love, collaboration, guidance and direction.

It takes a village. With anything in life whether it be raising kids or building a memorable experience, it takes a village. Cooper James deals with the best of the best within the events industry. The best AV team, the best production company, the best photographers, the best bands, so whilst our team may be small, our network is large. And of course, the best.

We also don’t believe in clipping the ticket. Our price is your price. Simple.

Cooper James’ office is based in the beautiful wine country of Waimauku in Auckland. But hey, we also have our passport up to date at all times.

Our Story

Hey! So about me.. I’m Michelle Denholm, Director for Cooper James Event Management. I’m  known for being the most organised woman around. I absolutely LOVE planning and looking after others, always thinking about my customer and trying to make their life easier. In a past life I founded Harmonious Living, a residential decluttering business which I ran part-time for 10 years whilst working full time. I guess I just love being busy.  I’ve been working mostly with corporates, running events and providing executive support at a senior level. So here I am out on my own! Exciting times ahead!!  I’m a little OCD on attention to detail and absolutely love creating beautiful experiences. Having integrity is super important to me, so I ALWAYS do what I say I will, and you will always have an honest conversation with me.  I’m a proud Mama to my little boy, think I’m an awesome wife, an avid animal lover and an all-round good egg. In my spare time you’ll find me in the garden, lunching with friends with a glass of rosé or planning my exercise and eating schedule for the week (which somehow manages to fall short most days).
