Finally! One stop shop for central FL meetings and events industry 🤗
Wow! I could not be more thankful for this podcast. The resources provided helps me stay organized within our industry and keeps me up to date without having to reference multiple sources. Not only do you get to know a different individual and business each week, you also get to hear about who is growing into new positions, what positions are available, and what networking event to hit next. My favorite part is that you also get a re-cap from those events you missed! (FOMO much? 🤪) I am also actually enjoying the ads! It’s great to hear what businesses are offering, especially during a time where so many are pivoting and offering new services. Keep it up you guys, your commitment to giving back to the industry does not go unnoticed!!!! #swagandrepeatforthewin
