Hello friends,

I hope this email finds you all doing well during these unsettling times.  We are all in this together and we will get through – although we know it won’t be easy to get there.  Keep the faith and know that we are here to support you as much as possible.

As promised in my last communication, I wanted to follow up on our April meeting.  I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Zoom meeting on April 16 at 3:00PM ET.  Joining us will be GBTA Industry Icon and former President and CEO, Kevin Iwamoto, GLP, GTP for a frank discussion about crisis management and how to take back control of your life while observing shelter in place directives.  Kevin will also share some tips and suggestions for managing your life and career during and post COVID-19 as well as take questions from all NEBTA members.  We hope you can join us.  It’s important that we stay connected and engaged.

Kevin Iwamoto, GLP, GTP

He has served on numerous association boards, most recently as a Board member for the US Council for the MPI Foundation.

Kevin has won almost every major industry award in both business travel and the meetings and events industries.  In July 2018, he was just named for the third time in five years one of the Top 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry from Successful Meetings magazine. In 2018 and 2019 he was named one of the Top People in Events, in the Strategy & Leadership category by BizBash. Other accolades include the 2016 MPI Rise Award for Meetings Industry Leadership, the Changemakers Award for MeetingsNet, BTN travel manager of the year and Top 25 Most Influential Travel Executives, GBTA’s President’s Award & GBTA’s rarely awarded Industry Icon Award (he is only one of eight recipients).

He writes a popular award-winning Industry Insights blog (Gold Magellan Award for Best Industry Blog from Travel Weekly), published though Meetings & Conventions on-line.

He has two published books to his credit, Strategic Meetings Management:  From Theory to Practice published in April 2011 and most recently, Your Personal Brand, Your Power Tool to Build Career Integrity, published in October of 2016.  Both are available via Amazon.

Prior to joining Bizly, Kevin was Senior Vice President at GoldSpring Consulting, VP of Industry Strategy at Lanyon, senior global category manager in the Hewlett-Packard Global Travel & SMM Team and senior account manager with the Walt Disney Company.

All members and non-members are welcome and can register for free.  If you have not yet used it, Zoom is very easy to use – no prior experience is required.  We will send all the details once you’ve registered and we get closer to our meeting date. 

ALL attendees will be entered to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards.

In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns or if you need anything at all.  We are all here to support one another. 

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home.
