COVID-19 (coronavirus) has made organizations all over the world rethink how they do business — whether it be sales conversations, internal meetings, or even planned in-person events.

IMPACT had Digital Sales & Marketing World planned as an in-person event for April and when things quickly changed, so did our plans.

Today we have special guest Stephanie Baiocchi, Director of Community & Events, who was able to take our in-person event and quickly organize Digital Sales & Marketing Day, a virtual conference within weeks.

Stephanie has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to events and audience engagement and, on this episode, she discusses her experience putting on the event, and questions she got along the way from others trying to do the same.
