Last week my assistant, Kristin Weis, and I traveled to her hometown and alma mater, West Lafayette, Indiana to Purdue University. I was asked to present at the Purdue Event Planning Society which is an organization that students started two years ago. There were fifty people in attendance and I had a great time sharing stories about Engaging Events weddings, my background and how to succeed in the event planning world.
Special thank you to Stephanie Portey and Morgan White from the executive board for inviting me to speak and also for the cool Purdue glasses they sent me home with as a thank you.
As an established wedding planner in Chicago, I feel it is so important to give back to the industry and help those interested in event planning. I hope the attendees were inspired by my presentation.
