Kelly Peacy is the senior vice president of education and meetings for the Professional Convention Managers Association. She has over 15 years with PCMA and is a great example of someone who is an “intrapreneur”.
In this episode we talk about her journey, but also about the Meetings Industry and how those who work in that business are often very entrepreneurial, even when working for other companies and associations. To be an effective meeting planner you have to have a strong work ethic and an eye for details. Most attendees never see all the work that goes on behind the scenes to create awesome events.
This episode is being released just a few days before the 2016 PCMA Convening Leaders conference in Vancouver. Kelly and PCMA take pride in trying unique things to enhance the experience of their members who come to learn, network and find ideas for their own meetings.
