Christy Lamagna
Founder & CEO
Strategic Meetings & Events

Christy Lamagna, CMP, CMM, CTSM is the founder and CEO of Strategic Meetings & Events, an international, multimillion-dollar, award-winning planning firm. A lifelong learner, entrepreneur, teacher, intellectual philanthropist, writer and master strategist, Christy taught strategic planning at the college level for 10 years, which inspired her to write an upcoming strategic-planning textbook. Christy’s focus is now on disrupting the meetings industry by teaching planners to evolve into meeting strategists who think with curious minds, act strategically, utilize technology and expand their creativity to form immersive, goal-driven events. Only then will the myths and misconceptions currently surrounding planners fade into the background while the invaluable skills and revenue-driving value they bring to organizations become the focus. She donates her time to numerous charities and mentoring, and believes that giving back is one of the most valuable ways she can spend her time and contribute to the world.
