What is Virtual Brunch with Actual Nerds?

While we can’t share our eggs benedict or mid-morning cocktails, we can gather virtually to share some knowledge and have some fun.

This free webinar series, hosted by technology experts Attendee Management (AMi), explores the state of the meetings industry, managing a small business through an economic downturn, maintaining a work/life balance, what a “virtual brunch” is anyway, and everything in between.
  • “What emerging technologies will remain vital even after in-person meetings return?”
  • “How are other economic downturns similar to what we are currently experiencing, and how has the meetings industry rebounded historically?”
  • “How can bottomless mimosas be on the house when I’m required not to leave the house?”

We’ll look at this serious, worldwide situation as a temporary detour on the road to a brand new normal for successful and impactful events, conferences, and meetings.

The Usual Nerds

Jeff Rasco

With 35 years of experience in the meetings industry, Jeff has seen his share of ups and downs. As an event technology speaker and industry leader, he brings a level of unmatched expertise. (He also is well known for his bloody mary mixology.)

Christina Rasco

As CEO of AMi, Christina is quickly becoming an expert in the Payroll Protection Plan and other small business disaster planning. Other fun, new hobbies include working from home with her new “coworkers” – her husband and two kids.

Jill Rasco

Jill is the definition of a lifelong learner. Always excited to learn about new software and technology, over the past months she has spent hundreds of hours advancing her virtual meetings expertise. It would be virtually impossible to attend more virtual meetings about hosting virtual meetings as Jill.


Layton Rasco

With an extensive background attending in-person brunches, Layton hopes to be able to translate that knowledge into the virtual world. As moderator, he will guide conversations about business, virtual events, and life in general amid these unusual times.

Virtual Bouncer

Jennifer Smith

She may look sweet, but she’s quick on the draw. As virtual bouncer, Jennifer handles all the dirty work. She’ll post polls, monitor chats, and keep things orderly. Dogs barking? Mute. Lawn mowing? Mute. Keyboard clacking? Mute. Mute. Mute. Zoombombers? Don’t even try it.
