Jim Spellos
Meeting U

Jim delivers over 150 seminars annually on how to use technology more efficiently. In 2015, Jim was named one of the Meeting Industry’s trendsetters by Meetings Today magazine. He is a faculty member at New York University, teaching in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies since 1990. He has been honored with both their Award for Teaching Excellence and their Outstanding Service Award.

In 2014, Jim joined the Board of Directors for Rock and Wrap It Up, an anti-organization which supports over 43,000 agencies in North America. Jim co-created their Whole Earth Calculator app, which helps organizations identify the quantity of food donated, and carbon footprint reduced, from food recovered at meetings and events. He also speaks about food recovery and sustainability in the industry.

Outside of the meetings industry, Jim is an accomplished musician and songwriter, playing guitar and keyboards, and has recorded an album of his original material with his previous group, Contraband. He’s currently in the studio working on new material.
