So often in the past, we have turned a blind eye excusing questionable practices with the phrase, “It’s just business.” But in this age of transparency, is that the best approach?
And if we seek to do what we think is right, how do we mitigate professional blowback from those who disagree with our actions?
Join us Monday June 11 at 3 pm for an #eventtable chat on Twitter as we discuss “Knowing When to Speak Out.” Our guest will be Conference Publishers’ President Mitchell Beer who has asked this question many times as an event industry professional and blogger. Most recently he took a stand here on the Event Roundtable in support of Black Out Speak Out, a Canada-wide day of action against efforts to gut the country’s environmental laws and shut down public dialogue on what it takes to build a sustainable economy.
We are looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic Monday at 3 pm est. For easier participation, go to Tweet Chat and type in the #eventtable hashtag.
