I'm excited to share that I'll be speaking on my fourth continent in 2014!
My other big news is that I was named to M&C Magazine's 2014 list of Planners' Favorite Speakers, along with James Earl Jones (yes, I'm on a list with Darth Vader), and others. See the list
2013 was a pretty great year too...

A Little About Me...

Thanks for stopping by. I'm a writer & speaker on all sorts of topics that I'm passionate about. I'm also a veteran meeting planner (I did my corporate time for seven years, then owned a third party company for 11 years, and now I run SPIN and The Hive Network. I'm also an occasional sales trainer and mentor to frustrated meetings industry suppliers trying to find a better way into the hearts and minds of planners. I believe in 100% candor - otherwise, nothing changes and the industry just keeps on keepin' on. I also believe nothing should get done without a little fun thrown in (unless you're the IRS).
I also speak and facilitate outside the meetings industry on adult learning, audience engagement, networking, customer-focused sales,and Un-Conferencing.
