40 Under 40: Amanda J. Young

amandayoungAmanda J. Young 35, Americas Event Leader, GE Healthcare Charleston, South Carolina

Young had been running an event team for a nonprofit technology company when a recruiter found her on LinkedIn and wooed her away to run GE Healthcare’s technology conference Centricity Live. She previously worked for Hyatt Hotels in sales and got her start in meeting planning for a small boutique technology company in Boston. Young says that aside from communicating with executives, working with keynote speakers, etc., her sweet spot is the actual planning. “I work with people to understand their perspectives for events and turn those into executable ideas,” she says. “As planners we need to be creative problem solvers and keep calm no matter what happens.”
