What Our Students Say

John Baldwin

Event Director

Connect Partnership Group

Let me start with saying I loved this course. The VEI team brought together an amazing group of subject matter experts that discussed topics that were relevant in today's event world. I've taken a lot of event courses in the past that seemed to be out-of-date and with old theories on how events should be run. Not this one. Great speakers, great content, and a great program.
