Longtime and/or regular listeners of The Wedding Biz will likely remember today's guest as she is no stranger to the show! Returning to The Wedding Biz to once again chat with Andy about what she does is Julie Novack, C.E.O. and co-founder of PartySlate! Founded in 2016, PartySlate is an online resource full of photos that connects people who are planning events of all kinds with leading event planners, venues, and vendors. It is also a place where leading event professionals can share their work, build their brands, and drive leads. Before founding PartySlate, Julie held executive positions at top-tier digital agencies such as Razorfish, Vibes, and Agency.com, and with more than two decades of digital marketing experience, Julie has brought so much expertise into the events industry and has helped some of the biggest brands in the world!
Julie discusses some of the positive outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as how so many people were so eager to collaborate and rebuild relationships that had been put on pause. She also offers her opinions on administration and virtual assistance, whether or not she believes a recession would negatively impact the events industry, why it's important to invest in your digital footprint and how to go about doing it, how to differentiate your brand, what trends that she is currently seeing in event design, and so much more!
Julie never gives interviews that disappoint as they are always full of reflection, tips, and advice, and this one is certainly no exception!

That really helps out the show and helps people find it!
