  • Proven track record of successfully managing events independently and collaboratively.
  • Technical proficiency with event management tools and software (MS Suite, Salesforce, Pardot, HubSpot, Marketo).
  • Ability to travel 20-30% of the time, primarily within North America, with occasional flexibility for international travel.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail, capable of handling multiple projects simultaneously.
