Phil McKenzie on Managing Time Producing Events for a Living

In Chapter 12 of 20 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, entrepreneur Phil McKenzie answers "As a Business Owner, How Do You Decide What Time Horizon to Focus on in Your Work?" McKenzie shares how managing time projects depends on the type of event he is planning and producing. For his Influencer Conference, given it is an annual event, managing time is consistently year-to-year. However, for new programs and smaller events, such as the Influencer Salon speaker series, he needs to be more flexible to accommodate shorter deadlines and delivery dates.
