Brian is an Event Strategist who helps Event Producers, Sponsors and Technology Firms partner for success. Early in my career, I started out staging large consumer expositions, and then moved into creating cooperative marketing programs and sponsorship opportunities.
Developing and selling high ticket “intangible” programs that deliver tangible results has become a specialty for me, as has helping clients generate real business development and thought leadership value from something that starts with just an inspired idea.
