Deborah Kattler Kupetz is an authority on “green” event planning, a career that sprung out of her combined passions for social action, environmentalism and community building. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to found dkkevents, which has produced hundreds of eco-friendly events for law firms and other corporate clients, helping them create successful events from both a memorability perspective as well as a return on investment.
In 2016, Deborah leveraged one of her innovations developed for green event planning and founded Recenterpiece, replacing single-use floral centerpieces with food-based reusable centerpieces that feed communities in need, reduce waste and provide event patrons with the opportunity to do social good.
As one of L.A.’s trailblazers in live event planning, Deborah has a well-honed eye for style, taste and trend. She combines a designer’s sense of form, space, shape and sound with a practical, grounded sensibility forged through a deep background in philanthropy and social service. This breadth of experience provides the foundation for Deborah’s uniquely effective ability to develop solutions for design, process and strategy, allowing both individuals and organizations to make a lasting impact.
Deborah holds Master’s degrees in gerontology and social work from the University of Southern California.
