Liz King recently served as our Keynote Speaker at the first annual MPI Georgia and SITE Southeast Tech Summit in Atlanta, GA on March 17, 2016. Her expertise, poise, diverse knowledge of the industry proved to be the foundation we needed to kick-off the meeting. So many of the attendees commented they would come again to a meeting just to hear Liz King speak…and I concur. Liz’s knowledge of technology and the application to the events industry is truly unparalleled. She brings such a unique perspective and yet she makes us feel like we can all be experts by the end of her talk.
