My favorite thing with Connect is to catch up with all the people I know. It's a great place to connect with all the people in the industry. @tstuckrath Click To Tweet Because we are an older facility, what we have done is to focus a lot on the operational components. You have a little bit of structure there are so many things you can do. @SaltPalaceCC Click To Tweet We have found that event planners are usually not interested in facebook messenger as a communication tool.

Information junkie, energetic, and work-a-holic are just some of the words we can use to describe Will. Aside from spending 20 out of 24 hours a day working as the Chief Event Einstein of Endless Events, you can catch Will ordering a chai latte or watching The Flash with his cats. He is also well known for his love of all things pretzels. On a serious note, Will does a great job leading the team and thinking of new ways to make Endless excel. His drive and dedication, to Endless, keep the rest of the staff going strong.
