RISE Awards at MPI’s WEC12

New picture of #MPI Rise award acceptant Alise Long for #royaldsm available on mpiweb.org. Alise and her team together with MCI conducted the announcement of the new brand to all 23.000 employers worldwide within 48h. For the fact that DSM used events so effectively, they received the RISE Award. Proud of Dutch contribution #MPINL and proud of the company where both my grandfathers worked their whole life.

Jill Schroeder also RISE Award winner, inspired me Monday as she speeched when accepting #MPI Rise Award. She basically summarised it all in one sentence: “You are in control of your own life and choices”.

and the year has started …

Yesterday was the first day of the fiscal year of MPI (Meeting Professionals International). I am proud to serve on their Board this year as a Vice-Chairman and I am looking forward to the year ahead. There is plenty going on in our industry and there is a lot of work to do to keep MPI ahead of the game. See the press release for the volunteer leaders which are serving for MPI on an international level. I am proud to be one of them.

Of course there are more great leaders working voluntarily in 72 of MPI’s Chapters and Clubs across the globe, delivering great content, network opportunities and member experiences every day to our membership. A great thank you to them all. And a lot of them have taken office yesterday as well! Congratulations and good luck!
