Retreats For Event Profs: Do We Need Them?

October 16, 2020

Let's talk about retreats for event profs. So, who doesn't love a good retreat? Whether it is within your company or you go all by yourself, these experiences can be life-changing. Because it's no secret that, human beings, we all need to retreat from something at some point. Maybe we just want to recharge. Or maybe we need to stay quiet for a little while. Whatever the reason is, there are many good things to be said about retreats - and retreats for event profs in particular.

So on this week's episode of Event Brew, Dustin Westling, Will Curran, and Thuy Diep get together to discuss the topic. What are their personal experiences with retreats? And in light of recent events - pandemic and consequent lockdown - will they become even more common? Will our industry adopt these retreats for event profs as a way to reconnect socially? Join us and learn more!

Event Company Hiring vs Unemployed Event Prof: Different Perspectives

October 2, 2020

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people felt the economic consequences. And few industries have felt this impact quite like the events industry did. Many event profs found themselves jobless overnight. But on the opposite side of the spectrum, those that chose to embrace the virtual landscape began growing their business. Companies that fall into this category are now hiring in order to answer the demand of the virtual market.

The Brew Crew just so happens to include two people going through these opposing experiences. Thuy Diep has a unique perspective to offer in terms of being currently unemployed. And Will Curran can speak on the side of an event company hiring and what that means for Endless and the industry. So on this week’s episode of the Event Brew, our listeners can get a sense of what it feels like to be on each side: unemployed event prof versus event company hiring. How does the pandemic affect them? What advice do they have to offer? Press play right now and find out!
