The term First Contact describes the first meeting of two cultures that were previously unaware of each other. First Contact Conferences brings together many different individuals to discover what insights can be gained when enthusiastic professionals share their most inspiring thoughts. Just like the sparks that result from a match making first contact with the striker, the ideas that come out of these meetings-of-the-minds illuminate the business, economic, and technological trends of tomorrow.
A great conference experience motivates people. Value is created when creative and forward thinking types gather to share their thoughts and experiences on the latest innovations in their field.
There is an interesting angle in every situation, and I work with thought leaders, professionals, and other experts to build engaging events based around ideas that inspire. Attendees advance their careers by creating valuable partnerships to implement the cutting edge strategies that they learn on site.
I create large-scale professional conferences as revenue sources and tools for membership engagement. I have produced global events for non-profits, magazines, and independent conference companies. I can help you with: program research; speaker outreach and management; copywriting; sponsorship sales; audience development; onsite logistics; hosting live events and webcasts.
I currently work as a Conference Producer for Information Management Network, a division of Euromoney Magazine.
I live in Westchester NY with my wife, son, and daughter. When I’m not reading, I love hiking, biking, running, and all sorts of exercise. I play guitar (or any instrument I can get my hands on) when I get a chance, and try to write in my blog once in a while.
