I was hired to work on strategic events for Airbnb for Work’s sales and product teams, managing high profile events like the Global Business Travel Association’s conference in cities all over the world, including Berlin, San Diego, and Singapore. The events I planned were used as touchpoints to further client relations, promote sales, and facilitate user research. I managed an annual budget of $1M, targeting our three largest sales regions, NorAM, EMEA and APAC.

In this role, I helped match high profile donors to non-profit organizations by orchestrating in-person visits so they could see first-hand how each non-profit accomplished their mission.

"Candice and I worked together on the Airbnb for Work team for several years. Candice was responsible for visioning, planning and executing all of our industry events (domestic and international) as well our team’s internal events (launches, sales kick-offs, etc). Her attention to detail, keeping all timelines and deliverables on track (multiple events at once), managing all the vendor relationships, communicating across internal and external stakeholders and handling all event follow-up earned her many a “how does she do it?” from the team. It was seamless. Candice has a true pass for “wow’ing” attendees and thinking of thoughtful, brand-aligned offerings that create once-in-a-lifetime events. What I appreciated most about Candice was she executed at an incredibly high level and did it all with a positive, solution-oriented, inspirational attitude. Candice truly was an invaluable member of the Airbnb for Work team and had a huge hand in shaping the team culture."
