Hometown: Portage, MI
Born and raised on Michigan winters, Caitlin made the move to follow her family to the sunny state of Arizona. She is now settled in Queen Creek with her husband and pup Lanie, and is enjoying not driving in the snow – or shoveling it – anymore.
Caitlin earned her degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from Grand Valley State University, and soon after gained a plethora of experience in the fast-paced world of event planning. From working on large-scale conferences to being a cruise director on a riverboat in the Pacific Northwest, Caitlin has seen and done it all. She brings to automätik her acute attention to detail and passion for executing memorable experiential events.
When she is not planning everything down to the very last detail, Caitlin is testing a new recipe, reading a good book, or watching the latest hit TV show. You can usually find her and her husband Hayden spoiling their dog and doing DIY home projects together!
Six Useful Pre-Session Event Activities
If you are facilitating a meeting or a corporate event, it is always good to begin with some sort of pre-session activity. You may think these are unnecessary and waste time, but an interactive and constructive pre-session activity sets the stage for a successful and productive meeting.
Are Your PowerPoint Slides for the Audience or Are They a Facilitator Crutch
When you hear the word “PowerPoint,” what comes to your mind? Many would say their thoughts include boring corporate events, long-winded presentations, and possible snoring. PowerPoint slide decks can be illustrative, dynamic visual aids, but they are more commonly designed in a way that prompts audiences to nap rather than engage.
Banish Clip Art!
While clip art may have once served a useful purpose for you or your organization, there are now a plethora of ways to avoid it and find higher quality alternatives instead. We promise, your quest to banish clip art will be easier than you think, and, ultimately, by using better images and illustrations in your presentations and documents, you’ll produce more impactful work.
