Our May Program brings us to our fifth stop on the road to Experience! 2017, and we're not slowing down now! This month will feature an interactive, hot topic discussion with industry leader Aaron Kaufman. Aaron will shake us up and make us think on topics such as Industry Ethics, Social Media Do's and Dont's, and the importance of Staying in your Lane.

Meet this month's speaker:

Aaron Kaufman, CSEP works hard – and with extreme passion! As the President of Fifth Element Group, it is safe to say that Aaron is a rising international resource in a very competitive industry. With his finger on the pulse of creativity in both event design and business, whether it’s new trends or developing strategic partnerships, Aaron always stays ahead of the game as a leader and trendsetter.

With multiple award wins and nominations nationally & internationally, including two Special Event Gala Awards, Aaron has been recognized for his creativity, originality and ability to push the envelope each and every time.  In 2015, Aaron was named to the prestigious “Top 25 Young Event Professionals” list from Special Event Magaziine, sits on boards for Visit Scotland, Events Uncovered and SEPA and is the current Chairman of The SEARCH Foundation.

Building 5th Element Events & Fifth Element Group from the ground up was no easy task, but Aaron’s driving nature and competitive edge always inspires his team to think differently.

Donations to benefit the SEARCH Foundation will be collected before and during this program. To learn more, visit the Foundation Website.
