“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
When it comes to event management, Parris has unparalleled expertise. The creative forces at Parris conceived and produced the bistate Governors’ Summit each of its five years, first for its initial sponsor, Sprint, and in subsequent years for the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce.
The Summit brought together the governors of Kansas and Missouri to create an entertaining and informative a half-day event for the region’s top business leaders, designed to thoughtfully contemplate regional initiatives and develop a Call to Action where bistate partnerships could work to achieve real net growth in Greater Kansas City.
Parris’ strong relationships with governors of both states, active civic engagement and expertise in media relations resulted in reputational elevation and credibility for the event’s sponsors.
