I’m excited to announce that Jeff Hurt has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Education & Engagement at Velvet Chainsaw Consulting!

Jeff has been an indispensable contributor to the VCC team over the past 27 months. His fresh ideas on the future of conferences and learning have been instrumental in helping our consulting clients on a path to re-invent their premium education products and services.

Jeff is a thought leader in our industry. He’s done a herculean job of helping meeting and event professionals better comprehend what makes meetings tick…learning and networking. Since joining Velvet Chainsaw, he’s written over 600 original blog posts and helped educate thousands of association executives and meeting professionals. Several months ago, Jeff was recognized as 2011 Educator of the Year for PCMA.

Jeff’s new title better reflects the exceptional work that he produces each and every day. It also speaks to the importance of professional educators in our industry and their critical role for improving professional conferences. Please join me in congratulating Jeff on his new title and contributions to the success of our company and industry!
