StarCite Publishes Strategic Meetings Management Handbook

The first guidebook for developing strategic meetings management programmes will hit shelves this August with the publication of Strategic Meetings Management Handbook: From Theory to Practice, published by Easton Studio Press and compiled by StarCite.

The new book is an in-depth look at the business dynamics and real world practice of meetings management. It features contributions from a host of meetings industry luminaries sharing firsthand knowledge on how to build and execute effective and powerful strategic meetings management programmes (SMMPs).

To that end, this book is focused on the ‘art of the possible’ – how to create an effective meetings management programme whether it’s in day one, year ten or beyond,” said editor Kevin Iwamoto, Global Leadership Professional (GLP) and Vice President of Enterprise Strategy for StarCite.
