Q: What is it that you do?
A: I started working with event marketing 10 years ago. I got involved in social media since 2007. After being a consultant and working with global brands I have become a full time blogger here at Event Manager Blog.
I have been planning all sorts of events and still do. From traditional conferences to barcamps, from networking events to product launches.
Q: I want to start a career in event planning, can you help me?
A: First read this post, then head to our Linkedin Group, we have a career section there.
I won’t reply to emails that have been covered in the above post.
Q: Can I pick your brain on my latest project or startup?
A: My brain has limited capacity and scarce time, therefore I do not offer one-to-one advice. I am not a consultant anymore, therefore it is highly likely I can’t help anymore. I am advisor to a few startups but usually that means we’ve known each other for a while. If you are a startup, the best way to present yourself is by filling this form.
I share the views on this article, so please read it!.
The best advice is summed up on the blog, so make sure to read it.
Q: Can I Hire You as a Speaker?
A: From time to time I speak at both face2face and virtual events. I usually talk about event technology and event trends. I am quite selective with the events I speak at and these are my views on speaking at events.
Events I presented at include: IMEX, EIBTM, Corporate Meeting Summit, MPI Annual Meetings, Tech Fest, Event Tech Circus and a few more.
Q: I feel my content would be great on this blog, can I write for you?
A: Yes. Here are more info. If you don’t read the guidelines I won’t read your post. We do not accept guest posts from tech providers.

A: We reserve the right to publish only the comments we find relevant and appropriate to the conversation.
