In Episode 240, I have the pleasure of conversing with Greg Giusti, SVP, Growth & Meetup Pro at Meetup, a social media platform for hosting and organizing in-person and virtual activities, gatherings, and events for people and communities of similar interests, hobbies, and professions. There are currently 55 million+ members across 330,000+ groups in 193 countries.
Greg is the second-in-command to CEO David Siegel, who I met at a JICNY networking event, hosted by our 79th Podcast Guest Jodi Samuels. He is the head of Meetup Pro, which has everything a business needs to take its community to the next level.
We speak about his experience playing on the Saint Francis Prep Chess Team, Meetup's partnership with Play Magnus Group, the benefits of chess in career, teamwork, data and analytics, communities based on passion and more.
