27: From an Event Producer’s Corner – a candid conversation with Tim Blackton (former Nike EP)


Welcome to a new episode of “Events: demystified” brought to you by Tree-Fan Events, with your host, Anca.

In today’s episode, we’re diving into the role of an Event Producer for events and seeing things from a producer’s corner (perspective), with Timothy Blackton, former Senior Event Producer at Nike World Headquarters in Oregon, where he planned, coordinated, and performed World-Class live productions and where he also worked with mentionable clients such as Nike, KFC, Cole Haan, Converse, North Face, Adidas & Freightliner to name a few.

He’s a Creative Producer, Director, Writer, and Actor on a fun independent short film entitled, “TECHS: Behind the Scene of the People Behind the Scene”,  a refreshing and hilarious comedy that first screened last fall at the Portland Comedy Film Festival where it earned a Best Comedy Film Award Nomination. Stay tuned for tips on producing & management styles that empower your team, how-to-deal with an event that goes sideways, what makes for a great team, and of course, tips for personal being in a challenging industry.
