Now, let's meet Heidi Brumbach, CMP, of Technisch Creative -
Hello, I’m Heidi. I began my professional career in the events and entertainment industry as a dancer, singer, and actress. I performed in theme parks, casinos, cruise ships, dinner theater and television. As an event professional, I worked in just about every area of events including broadcasting, talent management, catering, event design, planning, and production management. I now have over 30 years of experience in the industry and in the last 10 years, I’ve learned that production is my passion.
I started my event business in 1999 and have lead the company to be recognized by the International Live Events Association, MPI Michigan, MPI Greater Orlando, Michigan Meetings and Events Magazine, and Athena International for performance and entrepreneurial leadership. We now have offices in Orlando, East Lansing and Las Vegas. Technisch Creative provides Audio Visual production support for our clients around the world.
We are initiators, noise makers, entertainers, and artists.
Also... We're basically all coffee addicts.
As an industry leader, I have authored several published articles in Special Events Magazine and Campus Event Professional, and have held multiple leadership positions with the International Live Events Association, Meeting Professionals International, and Michigan Society of Association Executives.
