Executive Director of David Beahm Experiences and TEDx speaker, Christina Matteucci pioneers an integral role within the special event industry as Number Two to famed event designer David Beahm. Now in her eighteenth year of collaboration with David, she is uniquely positioned to provide valuable, first-hand experience with the importance of building—from the ground up—a functional and sustainable team to support a growing hospitality talent. During her session, she will address the singular relationship between Number Ones and their teams from both sides of the coin.

Christina will explore how modeling successful partnerships in the workplace sets a precedence for rewarding collaboration in society and bridges generational divides. She will tackle the queries she receives from hospitality Principals such as, "How do I find a Christina? Why is your turnover so low? How can I prevent my employees and associates from taking what I teach them and venturing out on their own?" Her lecture will also address how she advises emerging professionals making the decision to seek employment underneath the umbrella of a larger company or to branch out and begin their own ventures.
