The event industry thrives on creativity, but sometimes we get lost in the technical aspects of the day-to-day work. In this episode, host Reyna Caraveo and guest Narmeen Kamran discuss the story behind Desert Island Events Podcast, the event industry’s creative podcast, and why it’s important to remain inspired.
In this episode we discuss:
- The event industry’s creative podcast: Desert Island Events.
- Why it’s important for the industry to have something different to inspire creativity, aside from all the technical how to’s and other professional content we’re inundated with.
- Narmeen’s industry ventures – Hospo Book Club and Hospo Masks.
- National Events Council Diversity Survey
