Carrie’s story and experience were the perfect fit for our events company. Coming from a producer background, she knows how fast-paced the event industry is; we need to learn our market and be confident about it in front of our clients. When it comes to presenting now, I hope to have more gravitas, more pauses and fewer filler words!
