When I started the TradeshowGuy Monday Morning Coffee a year ago, my intent was to hold forth weekly about some aspect of the tradeshow world, mix in personal and no-tradeshow or event-related business discussion, and have the occasional guest. After a while of doing that, I decided that I needed guests more regularly – it’s much more fun and entertaining! And you learn a bunch from other people, too.
Looking back on the past year, a whole lot of interesting folks stopped by. Here they are, in no particular order):
Mike Duseberg of Magic Means Business – entertaining your tradeshow or corporate crowd.
