Hi,

I'm in the midst of planning our upcoming line-up for GORUP NAME and I welcome you to help me plan too! If you have an idea to for an event or presenter, I can help you make it happen:

 

1. You have an idea (or better, multiple ideas) for an event. Maybe it’s a topic you’d like to learn about, or an area you’d like to speak about. You let me know and we’ll discuss whether it’s a good fit, and how it could work.

2. You plan the event and find speakers/panelists/material for the event, with lots of support from me along the way.

3. I put the event up on Meetup, promote the event and coordinate the logistics. People show up, learn something and have a good time!

 

Interested? You can read about the process in .

Send me an email at YOUR EMAIL HERE­­ and let’s talk!
