ABOUT - After The Feast 2013 Conference, The Feast team discussed opportunities to continue community involvement and I suggested a monthly dinner series which I went on to manage from November 2013 - September 2014. Each month we selected a theme, speaker, venue, dinner activity and question, and a curated group of 20-40 innovators to join the table. The Feast Worldwide global hubs joined the conversation by hosting their own monthly dinners in over 10 cities around the world. 

MY ROLE - As the Director of Events I was in charge of selecting the monthly venue, finalizing the menu, setting up table decorations and coordinating invitations and RSVPs. With the team we selected the monthly themes and a question of the night supported by an activity. 

BUDGET - The budget of each dinner was reflected from ticket sales, ranging from $25-$75 per person. 

ATTENDANCE - Each dinner included 1-2 speakers and 20-40 guests. Speakers included Nancy Lublin CEO of Do Something, President of The Tibet Fund, Shaila Ittycheria Co-Founder of Estitute, Matt Brimer Founder of General Assembly, CEO of The Highline, The Rockefeller Foundation and many more. Dinner venues included The Meatball Shop, Pioneer Works, Cafe Nadery, Saxon + Parole, Wild Restaurant, Bell Book and Candle and private residences.
