Jody Paulson, CSEP
“Those four little letters, CSEP, show clients, vendors and industry peers that you have invested the time and energy it takes to become one of the best in live events. It is a demonstration of how serious you take your work as well as the depth and breadth of your industry knowledge. CSEP not only gave me a designation, but it also gave me opportunity and credibility within an industry I have been passionate about for more than two decades.”
Jody Paulson, CSEP, has more than 25 years of experience as an events professional in both for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. She holds a certification in Adult Continued Education (CACE), is a Certified MBTI Practitioner, and earned her CSEP designation in 2014.
