Liz King Events & techsytalk
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. She has been featured on Meetings and Conventions list of 25 Top Women in the Events Industry, Successful Meetings list of 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry for two years in a row and Connect Magazine's list of 40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Event Planners.
