In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Ian Zelaya, assistant editor of BizBash, hear from Richard St-Pierre, the president and C.E.O. of C2 International. St-Pierre discusses the most recent edition of C2 Montréal, and how the 7,000-attendee conference inspires C-suite executives to think more creatively and create value and deals out of face-to-face conversations. He also explains why he doesn’t call C2 Montréal an event, how business conferences can generate emotion, and how engaging the five senses helps open guests’ minds.
Sponsored by BizBash Live: Los Angeles and the Event Leadership Institute.
