Virtual Lunch Time Event: Connections First

17 February 2022 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm MST

Connections First with with Lisa Gareau, Candy Event Consulting. 




Has your organization traditionally used events to raise funds for your mission or awareness for your message? Has the roller-coaster of lockdowns had you questioning the role events can play for your organization or group? Are you tired of trying to figure it out how to plan when the future of events is still so uncertain?

What if I told you that – even with continued uncertainty – events could still become ongoing, energized “connecting points” where your community could gather and grow?

By planning events with Candy’s “Connection-First” approach, you and your team can rise above the current challenges to ignite new possibilities! Join Candy Event Consulting Founder, Lisa Gareau, on February 17th as she shares how you can start building more meaningful connections through the events you plan. This fun and interactive session will include small group discussion and a “Connection-First” Event Challenge so you can start implementing the ideas immediately!

After the sharp, connection-severing impact of the global pandemic the world needs the natural, bold, creative connectors to step up. Let’s explore what it means to step up and start planning and promoting events that put connections first!


As a Connection Strategy Coach, Lisa Gareau knows events can become energized “connecting points” where communities can gather and grow. Even with over 30 years of event planning joys and hard knocks, and 13 years since Founding Candy Event Consulting, she continues her work of empowering in-house and do-it-yourself event planners to confidently embrace their brilliance, activate their experience, and cultivate meaningful connections with their corporate teams, clients, customers, and community members. Lisa shares her learning widely as the creator and publisher of Moments Magazine – Event Planning Ideas + Inspiration, the happy host of The Connector Next Door Podcast for Planners, and is excited to guide a growing movement of impact-driven event planners through her new “Connection-First” course and community, The Connection Architect Certificate Program in 2022.
