Meet our people : Courtney Stanley @LadyPhenomena
Hello, I’m Courtney Stanley. I’m a speaker, writer and business consultant with a background in meeting design, event technology and leadership development. I am the youngest member to have ever been elected to MPI's International Board of Directors and was the recipient of the Association for Women in Events 2018 Disruptor Award, the MPI Chairman’s Award and MPI RISE Award. I was also honored to be named in Collaborate and Connect Magazine’s 40 under 40, and recognized as one of the meetings industry’s most impactful change-makers.
As a creator of the #MeetingsToo movement, I recently spoke with the British Broadcasting Corporation on behalf of the events industry regarding sexual harassment and the critical need to make change.
