Smart Meetings September 2022 Digital Issue - 10

Meeting Professionals of the Year
Catherine " Heartfelt Go-Getter " McGuire
Founder, Creator, WholeHearted
Motivation
Knowing our programs make a difference to so many (both in the workplace and in communities in need)
is what motivates me. When we're wrapping up an event, preparing impact reports and knowing we're
supporting leaders in creating better employee experiences while giving back to marginalized groups is so
rewarding. When challenges arise, I remind myself that we are all continuously learning. I focus on giving
myself (and those around me) grace, being solution-oriented and collaborating with amazing partners and
professionals to make things happen!
Catherine McGuire
Cheryl " Puzzle Master " Oswald CMP, CMM
Project Manager of Store Operations & Experience & Events, Kohl's
Motivation
Our industry's continuous evolution motivates me to continue to learn and grow. As a team
of one for a Fortune 500 company, I continue to tell myself that after all I have accomplished,
nothing will stand between me and making an event happen. I also tell myself my
favorite movie quote from " Mary Poppins, " " Everything is possible, even the impossible. "
Cheryl Oswald
Karen " Kitchen Sink Planning " Norris CMP
Conference Manager, The Canadian Association of General Surgeons
Motivation
When I worked in sporting events, I expanded my education modalities from traditional sources such as books, journal
articles and masterclasses to also include high-performance coaches and behavioral experts. For years, I have had
a quote from Seth Godin that hangs in my office that reads, " No one accidentally goes to a conference. No one accidentally
finds themselves at a convention. The people who are there are choosing to be there; they are choosing to pay
attention...Treat that attention like the privilege that it is. " I am a creator. I make things that didn't exist before I touched
them. I carefully curate safe spaces for scientific minds to come together to change the world. I do not take this responsibility
lightly and my motivation comes from knowing my physicians are working tirelessly to perfect their craft and
they expect the same from me when they trust me with their time and attention at my conference.
Karen Norris
Victoria " Behavioral Science Champion " Matey
Event Psychology Consultant, Matey Events
Motivation
Every time I'm having a hard time with something, I remember how much I've
already accomplished and how many more serious struggles I've already overcome.
When something feels overwhelming, I just apply the 'elephant' mantra:
how do you eat an elephant? One piece at a time.
