Greatest career accomplishments:
Becoming a partner in an established meetings and events firm at the age of 25 and becoming president of one of the largest MPI chapters in the world this past year.
When I started at BDI Events as a manager, we had two meetings clients. As a manager and into the partnership, I grew our conferences and meetings business for BDI more than 75%. It is now 50% of our business.
Specific improvement I’ve made:
I created the idea of a new education conference for MPI Southern California over four years ago called (WE)Con, which went on to win a Global RISE Award for Innovative Education of the Year in 2018, and now is the largest profit-generating event for the chapter to date.
