Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) Grad Spotlight: December 2022

Caitlin Ryan, CMP, Event Manager at HarbourVest Partners

How has being a CMP helped you? The CMP has given me confidence and the ability to feel respected and heard when discussing events, especially with vendors.

What advice do you have for those prepping for their CMP exam? Study in the way that you know you learn best. Write things down, read and re-read sections you do not feel confident in. Practice tests were a great way to mark progress.

What do you love about being an event professional? I love watching attendees enjoy themselves at an event and most of all, really appreciate when attendees find an event useful and have high praise for my firm after attending an event.
