What is YouShine?

YouShine Events & Consulting partners with local community based organizations to curate unique experiences for local entrepreneurs, to build community and connect with new and existing customers. 

Why the name? It's YOU that make things SHINE. That's what makes us different, we don't dictate how people's events should run, we collaborate to help their ideas SHINE.


We firmly believe the best way to build bridges is to bring 100% of your authentic self to the table, everyone deserves a seat.  Community organizations provide the space, and we bring the people.
