    Mind Meld: Find fresh industry insight from peers and innovators on the go. 

While the meetings and events industry may be tricky to navigate, it never hurts to have a friend or two in the business on hand to bounce ideas, share experiences and offer tips and tricks. Enter EideCom CEO Charles Eide and Senior Vice President of Sales Lisa Mendenhall Johnson—hosts of “Meeting Minds,” a new podcast specifically for event professionals. From true entertainment costs to the value of a professional emcee to tips for weeding out hidden fees or producing events with a true purpose, planners can tune in on the way to a site visit or between meetings for helpful insights from industry leaders and innovators on all things events. Stream all three seasons to hear how fellow planners build vendor relationships, navigate contract surprises, perfect event flow and more at meetingminds.org/episodes.

Great lighting is key. Smart décor is a must. But the mood of any gala, auction or awards ceremony lies largely on the shoulders of its master of ceremonies. Who you choose to represent your cause or organization on stage can be the difference between an event that is “ho-hum” or “electrifying.”
