MJMeetings, LLC Launches New Blog!
Post written by Missy Johnson, Principal, MJMeetings, LLC | Meetings Consultant | Gourmet Food & Wine Enthusiast | Sports Fan
Welcome to the very first blog for MJMeetings, LLC!
(Full disclosure here: My husband and business partner, Mic, works for Blue Gurus in Kansas City, and they build websites, do LinkedIn training, and help companies execute their weekly blog strategy.)
So while I had my doubts on whether I could ever become a “blogger” in the truest sense of the word, Mic encouraged me to share my expertise after nearly 20 years in the meeting and event planning industry.
Going forward, I will provide insights into various industry topics and issues and hope to start a dialogue around some of the challenges that meeting and event planners face today. Additionally, I welcome suggestions from you, the readers, on topics you’d like me to consider for future blog posts.
Here are just a few of the topics I plan to write about in the weeks and months ahead:
What Is A Meeting/Event Planner And Why Your Business Should Care
Why Asking A Lot Of Questions Is Critical As A Meeting Professional
PCMA Case Study: The Value Of Professional Membership
Ten Things I Wish All Production Companies Knew
And many more!
Thank you for joining me on this journey! I hope this blog serves as a source of information and education while providing insight and demystifying the role of a professional meeting and event planner.
Have other topics you’d like me to consider? Share them in the Comments section below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So glad you are blogging! You have a lot of knowledge to share with the world. :) One big topic that actually intersects Mtg Mgt AND effective practices related to social media is…..Conferences and Twitter! I can think of a million ways you and Mic could team up for some best practice examples. I think that is an essential part of meeting planning today…leveraging the conference content, increasing the conference footprint, and sustaining the sense of community which comes from attending a truly AWESOME conference! Maybe he could be a guest blogger. :) You would just need to pay him in sushi.
Thanks so much for your comment and for reading the post!
I agree that there are ways where Mic can enhance my blog. First up, keeping me accountable!
Great first blog Missy! I’m so very proud of you and what you’ve accomplished as “the best” meeting planner in the KC area! Keep the blogs coming….:-)
Great job, Missy and a big Congratulations! I am so proud of all your accomplishments!
Thanks Mom! Glad you found it on my website!
