Will I See You on 4/19?
I had the pleasure of attending my first ISES Awards show last year for the Ohio WOW Awards in Columbus. What a wonderful experience! I was new to ISES at the time. And just learning about the organization, and everything it has to offer a member. I have to say, I felt so welcomed. As the new kid on the block, I was introduced to so many people in our industry. It was an amazing event! What a great way to see the talents, and works of the best in Ohio, showcased under one roof. I feel that it truly benefited myself, and my company by giving us the opportunity to become familiar with others in our industry. The Wow Awards not only provided a great networking experience, but an inner connection between these top event professionals. It was amongst one of my top events I have attended so far. It really helped to kick things in gear for me. I have since experienced growth within ISES. I have become a member of the events committee, and a Director At Large for the Cleveland Board. My advise to anyone who is undecided about attending this event is, if you want to grow, and witness what ISES is all about, and has to offer, come get “WOW’d”!

“Why Am I Here?”
I’m fortunate that I’m able to visit The Special Event in Chicago this year. I’m a student of customer service, Karma & good will, and lord knows I do my best to keep my life balance in check; but the first seminar that I chose this morning was about “building the business you want to achieve the life balance you dream about.” with Tami Forero from http://www.forteevents.com. Great Choice!
My best takeaway is a simple concept that I feel strongly and passionate about: Every moment of your day you should ask yourself, “Do I love doing this? Am I good at it? Does it make me money?” It sounds simple right? While I’m not suggesting that you quit your job selling insurance, leave your baby at home alone, or boycott that convention or workshop your boss sent you to… I am suggesting that your life balance is probably out of whack if you can’t say yes to all three of those questions. If you can say YES to all three, GREAT! Your life balance is probably in a good place. If you can’t say YES to all three, get to work, write it on the wall, and make it happen!
So why am I here?
I love Special Events. I am good at them. They make me money.
