What Clients Say About Us

  • Thank you for the amazing event your team pulled together for us, in what I am sure was record time.  You graciously helped me through every step of the planning process.  You rolled with the increasing head count punches.  You had a fabulous team on the ground all day to make our event a TRUE JOY!

  • We had a last minute large corporate party that had a very specific theme,  the 1960s. Jud and his team over-delivered on every aspect of our event. The food was spectacular, the theme was done great, and the event couldn't have gone smoother. When I have my next party these are the guys I'm calling first...don't hesitate to give them a shot!

  • Planning a company picnic was super challenging but Jud and Tamiko walked me through it every step of the way. They contracted out all of the vendors and helped me deal with the not-so-friendly-or-helpful SF parks department.  It was great to focus on my day to day job and have someone else take care of coordinating all of the logistics for the company picnic.

    Overall, Jud and Tamiko are fantastic. If you have been given the monstrous task of planning a company picnic or event, I highly recommend Inspire Productions to make the process easier and less stressful, with an amazing, memorable outcome.

  • Thank you Jud for a successful company picnic! The Dolby team had such a great time. From the decorations, to activities, and just your teams spirit, it really made our event a success. We look forward to working with your team for our next event. Many thanks again!!

  • We wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time at the picnic on Sunday and we give a lot of credit to your facilitators and artists for making it a memorable day. The games were so much fun and the guys running it were GREAT!!! As you know we were hesitant to include these types of activities, but we are so happy we did!!

    I've never seen better face painting or better balloon artists!

    We had quite of few requests for your company name and information so hopefully you will hear from some of them.

    Again, thank you very much it was awesome!!

  • Have worked with Inspire on two holiday parties and they've come through both times with an incredible product.  When the CEO of my company says its amazing and when the staff have an amazing time with great food and entertainment, that says it all.

  • Inspire Productions put on a phenomenal event for our School community barbecue at San Francisco Flex Academy. They provided amazing activities, music, etc for our parents,students and staff. We had so much fun!

    We as a staff, were incredibly impressed with Inspire and Jud for their professionalism and great spirit, helping us to put on a very successful event. Thank you!

    Great people to work with and we recommend them to anyone looking to put on a great event. We look forward to working with them for future events!

  • Inspire Productions is one of the top notch event production companies in the Bay Area. As a photographer, I have worked at least half a dozen events that these guys have thrown, and they are still some of the most amazing events I have photographed. I am getting close to 2000 events, and some of the most memorable are the ones that Jud Yaski and his team have artfully put together. They get my 5 stars!

    Gene K. South San Francisco, CA
  • Thank you for making our company picnic a complete and total success! I’ve received tons of positive feedback from our employees (and their spouses) since Saturday, with everyone commenting on what a great day it was. I’ve heard “Best picnic ever!” from several people, which pretty much says it all. The food was delicious (and presented beautifully), the lawn games were a blast (we laughed so hard we were practically crying!) and the kids loved the face painter, caricature artist and bounce house as well as all of the extra fun and games that you provided. I  would definitely recommend Inspire Productions for any event, and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

  • The picnic was AWESOME! Thanks so much!!! For a group that wasn't thrilled about the team games, their competive natures sure came out! I received posivite feedback on the food, setup, games and overall experience. Would definitely want to use you guys again so I will be in touch for next year's event =) We just have to find a venue that will accomodate about 300 people and somewhere much warmer.

    Thanks again for all your help!!!
