Sherene Joseph has spent the last 10 years executing events around the world for major media organizations and managing Fortune 500 clients along the way. Her career began at Macmillan Publishers where she led the efforts for the publisher’s presence at BookExpo, the largest publishing trade show in the world. She then moved onto Forbes Magazine where she worked on the inaugural ForbesLive team that launched annual event platforms such as the Forbes 400 Philanthropy Summit, the Forbes Under 30 Summit and the Forbes Women’s Summit. Sherene’s career then took her to The Atlantic in Washington, DC. Her work with AtlanticLIVE took her to 40+ cities around the US, and she led events in Paris and London. She is currently the Senior Events & Marketing Director for Washingtonian Magazine, a regional lifestyle magazine that serves DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Sherene’s experience in media has led to her producing a wide variety of events while maintaining the integrity of the brand she is representing. From small experiential dinners that showcase new brands or offerings to large, multinational events such as The Aspen Ideas Festival and CityLab, she has served as the marketing bridge that connects the business and editorial sides of these publications into full scale experiential moments.
Sherene on her involvement with the Live Events Coalition: “My entire career has focused on events, and specifically bringing journalism to life. Organizations are increasingly looking for interactive and meaningful ways to engage with consumers who are quick to ‘opt out’ when they can. I have always been in awe of my fellow events professionals who have the innovation and creativity to bring large ideas to life. My close relationships with many partners over the years have created moments that truly dazzle attendees. I am eager to work hard to get our industry back up and running, and to continue our legacy of captivating audiences.”
