Conference and Event Management
Last active: 13 days ago
Conference Director and Trade Show / Event Manager consultant working with a broad array of clients from non-profits, associations to corporate. Having worked as a consultant during my career has afforded me the opportunity to work literally, every aspect of the business.
I am experienced in a full spectrum of services for conferences, seminars, fundraisers, conventions and trade shows, including program development and implementation, speaker recruitment, sponsorship development, exhibitor and sponsorship management and sales, as well as attendee acquisition.
My early graphics background has carried over into this industry, enabling me to utilize my skills as a marketing specialist to include social media marketing, graphic design, web design and maintenance, and more.
I have worked a broad variety of events to include many technology conferences, trade association conferences and trade shows and fundraising events.
Having worked with non-profits, I have done full-scale association management as well.
