It keeps me in front of an audience that can teach us a lot. And I believe I’ve learned some important lessons in my career that have value to students.”
Universities and colleges throughout the United States and Europe have implemented the MeetingMatrix software into their hospitality schools’ curriculum. In addition, MeetingMatrix funds a meeting and event technology lab at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
