There are a lot of little things that can really make the difference between a mediocre event and something truly memorable. One of the small things I always make sure to do is have a little something to give to keynote speakers that take time out of his or her schedule to speak and present in Greater Lansing. Depending on your role in the industry, maybe you're not giving gifts to speakers but in the course of an event, there is usually someone you need to thank. Smart planners are also considerate and thoughtful people. Because of this, I'm often asked, "what are good gifts to give to speakers?" To this I usually reply, "I'm glad you asked!"

I was going to be a student again, but without the fun parties and youthful energy I had for late-night studying in my 20’s. I have a few different professional designations that provide professional networks and training and lots of benefits - but for the next step in my career I really wanted to acquire the CDME designation.

A strong culture brings out the best in businesses, community groups and charitable organizations. Employees and team members feel motivated and valued. The mission statement and goals are clear. Everyone feels like someone has their back.
