Super excited to share on a challenging topic within the events industry about Cyber Bullying @weddingmba. I do realize we have staggering instances of this behavior when it comes to children, and we need to put an end to this immediately - do everything you can in your power to help if you witness a situation where someone is getting hurt - it is our responsibility to value and respect and protect human equity in all cases. But my session at Wedding MBA this November will focus on how to deal with this behavior as #eventprofs from the business perspective. You can hear a sneak peek podcast interview here. And check out the full conference schedule here. Hope to see you there.
