Pitch: Ashlee Ammons of Mixtroz
This is a podcast episode titled, Pitch: Ashlee Ammons of Mixtroz. The summary for this episode is: No matter how you approach it, networking is always inevitable, particularly for entrepreneurs. And the number one issue when it comes to a lot of networking events is that they don’t deliver the results they always promise. But attendees aren’t the only ones who suffer from poorly coordinated and awkward networking events. Event hosts and sponsors lose out on the opportunities to collect valuable data about their attendees that can be used to determine audience demographics and adjust marketing and planning for all future events.
