#167: Shura Taft on managing events with COVID-19

By Jordan Michaelides

Shura Taft is a Host and MC of pretty much any decent event in Australia, Director of Your Brand Live and more importantly, our upcoming Marriage Celebrant.

We had Shura recently on the show, and being a masthead for the events industry, we found it imperative to catch up with him and hear his thoughts on COVID-19, from a career, family and leisure perspective.

In this episode we covered:

  • Generation scarification
  • Noticing COVID-19
  • The events business
  • Pivoting careers
  • The next 6 months
