A standing invitation for event and hospitality teachers

Here’s a standing invitation for event and hospitality teachers.

I will meet online with your class for free.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, much education has moved online. One small silver lining of this disruption? It’s a good time to invite guest presenters into your online classroom.

As an experienced facilitator and designer of participant-driven and participation-rich meetings, I love to share what I’ve learned during my four decades in the meeting industry. No pitches or selling anything.

I’ve presented and facilitated at just about every meetings industry event, including Professional Convention Management Association’s Convening Leaders, PCMA Education Conference, Meeting Professionals International’s World Education Congress, IBTM, MPI Chapter meetings, the MPI Chapter Business Summit, HSMAI MEET, theEVENT, and FRESH, GMIC & NESAE annual conferences. Learn more about me here.

You won’t get a canned presentation. Rather, we’ll discuss beforehand what you and your students want and need. A session on a specific syllabus topic you choose? A freewheeling Ask Me Anything about meeting design that delivers optimal learning, connection, engagement, and action outcomes? Or a session that we build on the fly in real time to respond to what’s top-of-mind for your class that day? (I love doing those.)

You get to choose.

I hope you’ll take advantage of this standing invitation for event and hospitality teachers. Contact me to set up a mutually agreeable date and time!

  1. Hi Adrian,
    This is a wonderful offer; I can’t imagine any meeting management professor not taking you up on it!
    We’ve met, but I won’t be surprised if you don’t remember. I head up the events management program at Florida International University, and would be thrilled to present you to my convention management course. We have been talking about meeting design the last couple of weeks. The class meets at 5-7:40 on Monday evenings (eastern time). If your generosity hasn’t expired, I’d be delighted to host you. My ideals dates are 10/5, 10/12, 10/26, 11/9, 11/16 or 11/23.

    It isn’t as spectacular, but I’d like to return your efforts by inviting you to the facebook group “FIU/SDSU Event and Meeting Professionals”. It started for students, but has grown to include the likes of Julius Solaris, Carl Winston, Tyra Hilliard, and several event industry association leaders.

    I’ll look forward to hearing back from you. Stay well! Thank you for your consideration.


    1. I’ve now been a guest at two of Dan’s great classes. I got to know Dan better (such a nice guy!), got the opportunity to demonstrate small group work, and answer questions from tomorrow’s meeting professionals, and had fun!

      Happy to offer my (free) time to others. Don’t be shy!
