Tara Thebeau (CMP)
What do you really do at work?
As the Meetings Manager, I am responsible for all planning and logistics of the Annual Meeting. From sourcing meeting locations to directing attendees to the closest restroom, no task is too big or small.
Describe your Perfect Day.
Experiencing a destination’s food and wine culture with my husband. Emphasis on the wine.
What’s your Superpower?
I am a meeting planner….I’m required to have many superpowers. If I has to pick one, it’s juggling multiple tasks and priorities with a calm demeanor and friendly smile.
What’s your life motto?
Whatever you want to do, do it. There’s only so many tomorrows. (Thank you, Pinterest!)“There’s no better day than today”.
What inspires you?
I am driven by the connections made and what can be achieved when people come together at meetings.
