I recently had the honor of being invited to a dinner hosted by one of my mentors and favorite people in the industry, Hillary Harris – Executive Director of Warner Brothers Special Events and Event Solutions Hall of Fame Inductee. Little did I realize, Hillary was gathering together the top special events industry professionals as “A Toast to the Most Intriguing People of 2013-2014.”
I was beyond humbled and incredibly touched to be recognized alongside this special and talented group of my peers. In this moment, I realized how lucky I am to be in an industry where I can work amongst others I am inspired by – and that I have built relationships with some of the most talented people in our world. It is always important to recognize that there is enough work to go around and that by collaborating and helping one and other, we can not only build more successful careers, but we can also build a stronger community based on shared insights and collaborative thinking. I had the most amazing time getting to know new faces and developing friendships and business relationships that are sure to last a lifetime.
Thank you, Hillary, for this amazing opportunity. And cheers to my new friends!
