Laura Byes
Director of Meeting Partnerships
Fostering collaboration through effective meeting and event planning as Director of Meeting Partnerships at FACE2FACE is my top priority! Many years ago, I read that the ability to learn is the most important quality a leader can have. I have realized that not only is this true, but that the best way to learn is to ask! It takes a village to build and run something with success, and as the Director of Meeting Partnerships at FACE2FACE, I continually strive to learn from and lead my ‘village’! My professional journey began after receiving my Bachelor of Arts from Northeastern IL University in early childhood education. I also received my Master of Education degree in early childhood development, with a focus on global social and policy issues. With thirty plus years of leadership experience in both the non-profit and private sectors, I have created, planned and executed annual strategic planning processes that have been incorporated into more than thirty non-profit organizations. I believe the basis of all successful collaboration is exceptional communication. I work together with my clients to create highly effective meetings and conferences, which contribute to the successful growth of their companies. When I’m not working, I like to live the “Chicago life” and spend quality time with both my amazing children and beautiful granddaughter.
