96: Adapting to a post-Covid pre-recession event landscape ft Melissa Park

I know you’ve been expectantly waiting for a brand new episode to drop after the LONG break in November (because November was crazy hot with back-to-back traveling for hybrid events) – and so, WE’RE BACK!! 

On this new episode of the current “𝐖𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧 𝐁𝐞𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬 𝐈𝐧 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐄𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬” season, 

I have invited Melissa Park to join me for a conversation centered around: 

  • Event budgeting and how to adapt in a post-covid & pre-recession landscape,
  • Tips for going from struggling to sold-out events (with engaged attendees),
  • How to beat (and come back) from burnout as an event professional – oy vey, how we need this one!
