Nicole R. Matthews, CSEP, is Founder & Lifestyle Architect of The Henley Company, LLC., a global event, travel, and lifestyle concierge firm based in San Diego, California. With the belief that life should be experienced in a big way, Nicole set out to create a company focused on helping clients to live the life they want and to produce the experiences they want to remember….and Tweet about!

Nicole not only works with clients to create unique experiences, significant celebrations and memory-making events, but she is also recognized as a leader in self-producing events and strategic partnerships. Her landmark, Sex and the City movie launch party events throughout the country positioned her as the expert in self-producing. With her creativity, fortitude for creating strategic partnerships and her ability to lean on others for support, Nicole is an accomplished business owner, professor, speaker, and now author.  She is delighted to add Olympic (London 2012 & Sochi 2014), FIFA (Confederation Cup 2013 in Brazil) and two Super Bowl (New Orleans, LA & Phoenix, AZ) projects to her global portfolio.
