Hello, I’m Lesli Yager-Montgomery
Event Strategist, ESN
With 25 years of hospitality experience, I have mastered the arts of contract negotiation, revenue management, customer service and recognizing emerging trends. My expertise enables you to focus on more of the “meat” of your conferences while I tackle the time-consuming tasks related to site selection and hotel negotiations.
And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.
Partnering with me and Experient will provide you with the best overall package for your organization and for your attendees.
“Since I met Lesli, she has been a tremendous help with all of our board meetings and seminars we run throughout the state of North Carolina. Especially when I don’t have the time to look through contracts, she has gone through them thoroughly and has gotten us better hotel rates and concessions. Once I give her the details of what we need, within a day she has several quotes from numerous vendors. Lesli is always professional and I never have to follow up with her. One time we were driving to Concord, NC and hit bad weather and traffic. She waited at the hotel for us, almost 2 hours, to go over another future venue, she had quotes for. That is customer service.”

“I met Lesli 5-6 years ago when she was with a resort property I was looking at for a group event. During the process, she was always available to answer questions and provide options for our needs. Since moving to Experient she has continued her commitment to professional and superior customer service, working with me and hotel properties to secure the best possible arrangements for my groups – large or small. I cannot imagine planning a group event without her involvement.”

“I have known Lesli for several years when she was the sales manager at the Sheraton New Orleans and at the Westin Resort Hilton Head. She has proven to be extremely knowledgeable and supportive of client requirements to ensure a positive outcome for the contracted event, not only for the client but for the attendees. She understands the sale does not end with the signing of the contract, but remains active through the event process. Her professional approach is the reason I have contracted numerous functions with her while she represented the Sheraton and Westin properties. Experient is fortunate to now have her on their staff.”

“I have worked with Lesli for a number of years now, both on the hotel side and now with Experient. Her professionalism and expertise allowed me to get the best deals possible for NASPA and my attendees. Her follow through before, during and AFTER the program is so refreshing. If there’s a problem she handles everything. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lesli and have recommended her to all of my members.”
