MJMeetings, LLC Launches New Blog!

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 missy@mjmeetings.com.

    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.
