SPEAKER TRAVEL HEROICS: HOW MIKE ABRASHOFF DEFIED WEATHER TO KEEP HIS EVENT STREAK ALIVE

AN EVENT PLANNER’S BIGGEST FEAR

In a world over-saturated with content and driven by algorithms, businesses are scrambling for the holy grail of “engagement.” Yet, despite the flashy ad campaigns and aggressive marketing strategies, many find themselves hitting a wall.

In an era where the default mode is to curate, filter, and present polished facades, those who present their genuine selves break through the noise. Authenticity is more than a personal quality; it's the heartbeat of a company's culture, guiding the way to genuine connections and meaningful interactions. So, what’s the secret to weaving authenticity into the fabric of our digital presence?

Enter Mariana Atencio. She just joined D’Amelio Network and is an expert on authenticity.
