MESA Founder Forums
At MESA we want to provide support from within the community to energise, champion each other and empathise for members' needs. We run regular Founder Forums, focussing on current issues facing our Founders and CEO’s.
Our first Founder Forum in May 2021 looked at ‘Corporate Culture’ and how the pandemic affected our Founders, running their companies and teams during a very difficult time. Our recent Founder Forum on 16th September focussed on The Shifting Landscape in Event Technology, Mergers & Acquisitions’.
Join our next Founder Forum on 9th December - How to motivate your teams and keep them focused on common goals. You can find more information here about the event
Non-members can also join a Founder Forum (once) before becoming a member. Our members can invite Founder colleagues in the industry to attend. If you are a Founder, CEO or director as a supplier to the meetings and events industry, and would like to hear more about our Founder Forums or MESA Membership, please contact Sandie
