As a sponsor, I am involved with the 2015 MPI Southeast Educational Conference because… the exposure we receive is immeasurable. We are able to showcase our capabilities in ways that help our current and potential clients enhance their events and their ROI. We do 20-30% of our annual revenue with MPI members, so sponsoring the SEC is a “no-brainer” for our organization.

I Unlock My Ingenuity by… learning about new trends and seeing the new techniques groups are using to increase their communication’s effectiveness.

As a speaker, I am involved with the 2015 MPI Southeast Educational Conference because… as a speaker during the 2014 MPI Southeast Education Conference, I enjoyed meeting dozens of Floridians involved with the meetings industry – either as planners or suppliers. Many have reached out to me since my appearance, and I am hoping for a return visit soon to the Sunshine State!

I Unlock My Ingenuity by… spending time in nature. It is my fuel for creativity and problem solving. I love to hike, bike, and fish, and in Minnesota I have plenty of opportunities for those things. But in winter months, I long for sunshine, warm weather, and walks along a beach, which allow me opportunities to dream up new ideas and goals.
