************ The Short Self-Pitch (SSP) *********************

Hi Sonja –

I’ve recently begun a job search and was hoping to be considered as a candidate
for the Short Self Pitch section of the HEPN weekly email. Thank you in advance
for the opportunity – and thank you for the great weekly blasts, it’s been a
huge asset in seeking out new opportunities!

Short Self Pitch for Wes
Peskin, CMP:

I am a results oriented Certified Meeting Professional with seven years of experience in the
meetings industry. I have a keen eye for the details, small and large, and am
very consistent at working all elements of the end to end planning process for
multiple conferences simultaneously. I have had on going success at reducing
expenses without deterring from the goals of any conference for my clients and
ensuring a positive experience for attendees through innovative customer
service solutions. I have spent the last two years as the meeting planner for a
non-profit in NYC and just completed our biannual conference for 4,500 which
held a 90,000 sq ft exhibition hall, 200+ small format workshops, and dozens of
large-format sessions. Also entailed significant musical entertainment and
production. As I begin my search – I’m open to any opportunity, however I’m
primarily focusing my search in the New York City and Washington, D.C. metro
regions, as well as the Western U.S. If anyone has any opportunities they think
I might be a good match for, an email would be greatly appreciated, I can be
reached at WSPeskin@gmail.com

Thanks again for the opportunity to include this in the next edition,

Wes
