How to Use Technology to Entertain and Engage your Conference Audience

Use Technology to Engage Your Audience

How often do you use your phone for anything other than a phone call, text message or email?

How Meeting Planners can Renew, Refresh, and Fix our Clothes

Meeting Planner Event Planner Clothing

Meeting planners travel. Travel is messy. Mustard drips, sweaters pull, shoes scuff, and wine gets spilled my friends. Just like we win the game of meeting planning, we win the game of wardrobe malfunctions by being prepared. We all know that when you are on site, you don’t have time to be running over to the local Macy’s or Marshall’s to grab new clothes. Read More
