While at Google we hired Urban Diversion for our off site and he set up a Limo Scavenger Hunt.
This was a large event and it went off very well and was very pleased.

He is a great organizer and has a great attitude.

During the past 2 years that I have been involved with Urban Diversion, Corey has been the Operations Manager at the company. I have come to admire Corey’s sense of discipline, hard work, and above all, his character. Corey seems to have a moral compass that guides him, and I have repeatedly see him make the right decision. I think Corey will always be a great asset to any company that he works in, and I will always wish him great success in his career.

Corey’s accomplishments with Urban Diversion continuously impress me. He plans the most creative, interesting and fun events, and I know if I’m going to one of his activities it’s going to be great. He is the BEST event host – friendly, outgoing, fun, and genuinely concerned that everyone is comfortable with the group and having a good time. I’ve also seen him handle unforeseen complications calmly and with great professionalism, and have the utmost trust in him that things will always turn out well in the end. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!

Corey was an amazing event planner and host! He always looked for different and better events for UD members. Though he specialized in outdoors and sporting activities, he was willing to try just about everything — even going to the symphony or playing urban golf!

If Corey organized an event, I knew it would be good because he put in top notch effort from the research and planning phases of the event, all the way through to “game time.” He always was open to suggestions and always did his best to please members. I technically may have been a “client,” but I felt like much more than that and am certain I was not the only one.

I have worked with Corey on a few public relations and photography projects. He is excellent with communication, especially in handling objections and difficult situations; connects well in the local community, and always comes up with creative ideas for promotion and events. After attending a few of his events and working more closely with him and his company, I found that he is also very dedicated and focused in what he does.

Corey has been a joy to work with. I will recommend him to any company that wants to work with a professional, organized and friendly event organizer.

I’ve worked with Corey Montie and Dimensional Entertainment on multiple projects and I’ve always found him to be professional, goal-oriented and hard-working. I have been impressed with his level of network skills as he has been one of the more well-connected people I have known in Columbus before his move to Hong Kong.

Dimensional Entertainment - Events Manager

Corey is a detail-oriented manager that understands the events business and community. A great teacher that takes the time to demonstrate that hosting great events are in the smallest details not just the the big picture. He is in tune with what the customer wants and adjusts to each and every event as it is necessary. His exceptional ability at time management and his attention to detail are something to be admired.

Director of Operations - Last Call Productions

I highly recommend Corey Montie as a candidate for employment. Corey was employed by Last Call Productions as a Sales Manager from March 2011 to April 2012. Corey was responsible for sales in growing our Columbus, Ohio market, and managing employees for our greater Columbus operations.

Corey has excellent communication skills. In addition, he is extremely organized, reliable and computer literate. Corey can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. He is flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned to him. Corey was quick to volunteer to assist in other areas of the company operations, as well. Corey would be a tremendous asset for your company and has my highest recommendation.
