Posts by Liz King

Liz is an event planning superhero by day, and closeted tech geek and introvert by night. Distraught by the thought of everyday civilians being conquered by spreadsheets, she resolved to re-channel her organizational and tech savvy superpowers and launched Liz King Events while still running events full time for Columbia University. Liz voraciously shared content on event best practices via social media and quickly became a thought leader/influencer amongst her peers. Her hopes of being an incognito event superhero went down the drain as her cover was blown once she started making cameos on lists like "Successful Meetings list of 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry" and "Connect Magazine's list of 40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Event Planners in 2011." Liz now comfortably wears her cape and employs her superpowers to helps entrepreneurs/brands like Claudia Chan and Ramit Sethi plan smart, tech-savvy events to better engage their attendees.

Outside of client events, Liz uses her prowess to educate and challenge her industry peers on how to better integrate technology into live events to create a more winsome audience experience, through auxiliary outlets techsytalk.com and PlannerTech [Founder]. When not saving Gotham from the event-planning woes, Liz can be found unwinding by learning how to code, brushing up on her Korean, or indulging in Korean cuisine ... all in civilian geek attire, of course.
