Let’s get those event ideas muscles working, shall we? To all the nay-sayers, and all the non-believers out there, take note! Because today’s episode of #EventIcons is all about keeping it weird and making it awesome in the process. We’re exploring the amazing things that can come out of thinking outside the box, growing, and constantly learning in our industry. And while we know change can be scary, it tends to be for the best. Nothing can provide an extra kick to your event ideas quite like keeping it just a little weird…and you’re about to find out how.
Joining our hosts Brandt Krueger and Lindsay Martin-Bilbrey are two very special guests. From Association Chat, we welcome KiKi L’Italien. Bridging the gap between the virtual and real-world, KiKi is driven by bringing people together, speaking to audiences about developing community and trust so that more people can unite to make our world a better place. Additionally, she serves as a Community Leader for Association Chat, an online community, and podcast with special events, products, and services for the association industry. And we’re also happy to be joined by Glenn Thayer. Known as the “Voice of Meetings and Events,” Glenn Thayer is a professional conference moderator and master of ceremonies. He has more than two decades of experience facilitating corporate and association conferences. His clients span varied industries ranging from technology and healthcare to financial services.
