Bringing People Together Pre, During, and Post Pandemic with Samantha Swaim

Show Notes

In this episode of Talking Shizzle, we sit down with Samantha Swaim who is the CEO and founder of an event fundraising company, Swaim Strategies. Sam has been in the nonprofit space for a while and is located in Portland, Oregon. For today’s shizzle, the group talks about hybrid work environments, remote work life, and even more specifically, hybrid events. And yes, possibly even an $8 frozen yogurt cone that was purchased in New York City, beware of the expensive ice cream folks! Sam talks about how her company is focused on helping nonprofits raise money through events.

We also dive into some geographical discussion, and how Portland has changed since the pandemic began, along with all of our respective areas. The trio also touches on how the food scene has been impacted, with many restaurants having to close down during the pandemic. Of course – this has created opportunities for small business owners, which is somewhat of a silver lining.

Eventually, the conversation shifts to how the world has changed in the last three or more years, specifically in regard to events and technology. Innovative technologies like Zoom and Video Chatting have become a normal part of life for many people, and how things have changed in such a short amount of time. All in all, it’s a great conversation! Tune in for this plus so much more:
