Terri has been in the meeting industry for more than three decades, and has been recognized many times for her work, including her induction into the CIC’s Hall of Leaders in 2010.

It is a tool that is intended to clarify the purpose of a meeting or event and help leadership align with the work to be done by the event.

She is an enthusiastic, approachable and effective trainer, enabling others to understand new concepts, recognize their own abilities and accomplish what they might think unattainable.
