Three Cheers for Our New Certified Timeline Genius Program!

Hey TG Community! 

We are incredibly excited to launch a new CERTIFIED TIMELINE GENIUS program here at TG headquarters!

Our goal is to award a badge of distinction to planners who have achieved a high level of expertise with our program and are consistently creating A+ timelines for their events!

We have established clear standards for this certification and intend for it to be a true honor that planners seek. By gaining a deeper understanding of our software’s incredible capabilities and applying it to their own timelines, planners are saving valuable time and becoming a “Genius at Work”!

All of the hard work, creativity, and attention to detail required to achieve a stunning wedding deserves to be recognized. We also believe that every planner has a unique voice in the industry.  So, each new recipient will be featured on the newly minted Certified Timeline Genius page of our website. We’ll shout their achievements to the digital rooftops! Not to mention a few social media mentions too! Great work deserves to be praised.

As a planner,  you wear so many hats, from creative inspiration to therapist.  Now, your attention to detail and organizational skills will also get some well-earned kudos too!

Please keep your eye out for the first award winner spotlights coming soon.

And, keep up your great work with TG!  Once you’ve reached the pre-requisite milestones in Timeline creation, you will automatically be invited to join the ranks of our new Certified Timeline Geniuses.
