Jay Guilford works on a team that has taken aspects of the showmanship that Cirque du Soleil is known for and has applied them to the world of corporate live events. We talk about the different types of events that they’ve offered in the past as well as way that event professionals can incorporate more spectacle in their events. We also talk about audience participation. When it works, when it doesn’t and how you can tell the difference. Jay is an interesting guy with a very interesting job in marketing. I really enjoyed our conversation, and I think you will, too.
