Andrea Driessen, chief boredom buster at No More Boring Meetings based out of Seattle, has written a helpful book about creating hugely entertaining events. This is a guide for both the newbie and seasoned event planner. Chapters include “When You Need Events—And When You Don’t,” “Unconventional Event Formats that Boost Engagement,” and “How to Curate a Kick-Ass Speaker Lineup.” The book is liberally sprinkled with smart planning tips about everything from engaging audiences across generations to improving your event’s Q&A, and Driessen offers templates and resources online that can be downloaded to accompany the information. The book is available through her website at nomoreboringmeetings.com or wherever books are sold.
