Our guests on this show are two women who are quite experienced in the meetings and events industry, and particularly with #eventtech. When asked just about every question on this show, they provided such insightful (and many times surprising) answers!
The industry has been talking so much about tools, tools, tools through this transition of taking our events online, but not much has been discussed about the strategy and creativity involved, so we cover that.
When asked “What is the TOP lesson you believe event organizers have learned so far through all of this?” -- they did not reply with an expected answer.
Michelle and Dahlia give us the straight talk… This is a MUST-listen-to conversation for our industry.
