Inspire: Leading Authorities' Day of Ideas

Leading Authorities, Inc.

Leading Authorities, Inc. hosted a day-long event featuring some of the hottest speakers on the circuit. Inspire: Leading Authorities' Day of Ideas event was designed to give meeting professionals and other key event stakeholders a unique opportunity to preview great speakers on a wide array of topics all in one place, all in one exciting day.

Inspiration For The Day

It's show time! Bright and early our producers began setting up for the exciting day ahead. With a keen eye for detail, our producers conducted soundchecks with our speakers before attendees arrived to ensure all presentations were working, microphones functioning and stage lights bright.

Inspiration From Chaos

Our fearless intern, Amber, lead the charge on the sidelines of Inspire ushering speakers and presenters on and off stage to keep the day running smoothly. She did an amazing job and jumped in when necessary throughout the day. Way to go, Amber!

Inspiration From Preparation

Senior Vice President, Helena Lehman, commanded the audience as she introduced AI and robotics guru, Neil Jacobstein, to the stage. An introduction from an LAI employee along with short intro videos accompanied each speaker's presentation and kept our team committed to providing the best experience for the attendees.
