Three years ago Will Curran wanted to find a way to stand out in a crowded space, doing what he loves best – talking to people. Just as important to Will was thinking about how to develop and deliver meaningful content for event professionals, by event professionals in an engaging format. While #EventIcons has been through iterations of delivery, the premise, the core that we can and should learn from each other has remained!
