In this episode of the ‘Where People Meet’ podcast, we are joined by Shawn Cheng, a proud advocate of event professionals across the globe and regularly featured as one of the leaders in our industry. Shawn has amassed numerous awards over the years. He currently lends his ever expanding skill set to the DAHLA+ Agency as their Senior Strategist of Brand, Experience and Marketing. He is also the co-founder of #EventProfsBreakShit, a community of event professionals who come together to test and experience event technology.
Having known Shawn for years at MCI Global, we were incredibly lucky to have him sit down to answer a few questions about his background in the meetings and events industry, his thoughts on the industry not getting enough new talent and ideas, how we can recruit and retain new talent in the industry, and his ideas on what the future of this industry is. As always, we close out the episode by asking Shawn to provide listeners who are looking to maximize their networking experiences at events with some actionable tips and tricks.
