New Member Spotlight – Olivia Pelzer
August 1, 2017
Who are the most important people in your life? My husband, my family and my two kitties – Kenny & Pib!
Who do you work for and what is your role? I work for Cardinal Health as a meeting planner. My primary responsibility is planning our annual customer conference and tradeshow with 8,000 attendees. I also plan a variety of other meetings throughout the year, and manage our strategic meetings program through Cvent.
What is the best thing about your job? The best thing about my job being on-site at a meeting (usually by the last day). I enjoy seeing all my work be put into action and result in a successful conference or meeting.
What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Multi-tasking, adapting easily to change, and staying organized
What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry? I would advise them to watch and listen to your peers and everything around you. In my short career, I’ve learned the most from my co-workers and their different planning styles. This has helped me shape my own planning techniques and know how to confidently handle any situation I’m given.
What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? For sure cloning. I have a hard time teaching other people so if I could just have another version of me, I would get so much done 🙂
