Find Your Community: 3 Steps to Building Lasting DMC Relationships 

As professionals, we’re constantly reminded to keep our personal lives out of our business, but is it possible to have a healthy mix of both and still be successful? ILEA NCC President & Sales Manager for Key Events, Rachel Jacob Barnett (RJB), will discuss the secrets behind #FindYourCommunity, and how integrating some of our personal life into our business relationships is the largest key to lasting success!
