Play • 38 min

Today’s guest has a passion for bringing people together. Appearing on her first non-company podcast, please welcome Rachel Heller, the Senior Event Content Manager at Bizzabo. Rachel thrives on making connections and is a self proclaimed “event content nerd”. Rachel joins Kerri to share her tips on professional event planning. 




  • Events bring people together and it creates amazing opportunities when you bring other people together who have never met each other.
  • During “The Big Pivot”, a lot of event professionals had to change over to getting speakers used to using webcams and speakers and other technology.
  • It’s easier to ask someone to speak to a camera rather than a room full of 1,000s of people. 
  • Speakers need to put a little more thought into their titles and abstracts that they create for their sessions.
  • With more virtual events, it allows for people who wouldn’t have traveled before to be a speaker at an event.
  • During the past couple of years, there have been more female speakers at events.
  • The pandemic has forced the event industry to get creative with how they work events so that everyone can attend.
