Tell us about your business and your current job.

EideCom is a leader in the events community. We specialize in AV/Production, broadcast-quality live streaming, content creation, video production, editing, and also have a proprietary event platform, Second Stage, for seamless virtual and in-person events. Our team is all under one roof, and we strive every day to make the biggest impact on your audience. Personally, I am in Business Development & Relationship Management at EideCom. I spend my time networking with other event professionals, learning about the strategies they leverage for their events, and help create a plan of action to help them accomplish their goals.

What do you hope to gain from your MPI membership?

I hope to gain amazing new relationships. Our industry is all about relationships. Collaboration is key, and we are stronger together. MPI is the global leader in our industry, and the education and relationships I know I will gain from this membership will help me grow for years to come.

If there was only one thing a potential customer could remember about your company, what would that be?

 "We'll get it right" Are there going to be speedbumps and challenges during the planning process? Yes, there always are, it's life. Will, our team go above and beyond to get it right, with unparalleled customer service? Also yes ... there truly hasn't been a challenge we haven't been able to solve. From sourcing new gear at the drop of a hat, to flying a client's podium across the country (the owners of EideCom are pilots) our team has the attitude and resources to get it right.

What one piece of advice would you give to a new supplier joining the MPI network?

 Don't go into a networking event hoping to make a "sale". Our industry is about people. My goal as a supplier is to help, educate, and build new connections that are mutually beneficial. In the end, the best sales will evolve that way!

What has been the best piece of advice you have been given, and how has it made a difference in your life - personally or professionally?

 "The way you do one thing is the way you do everything." I can't remember where I initially heard this phrase, but I hear it time and time again when I am in a Peloton class. It continues to stick with me because over the last year and a half-life has challenged me both personally and professionally. Every time I think about wanting to quit, cut corners, or slack off, this voice in the back of my mind brings out this phrase and reminds me to see a project, task, or workout through to the fullest. Not for anyone else, but for me.

What are some of your favorite pastime activities?

I am a super active person in general, and like most other type-A event professionals, I love being busy. I love working out, golfing with my soon-to-be husband, hiking, and just being outdoors in general. I've also been recently participating in Triathlons, so if anyone needs a training buddy let me know!
