Ellen Maiara, CMP

Ellen Maiara, CMP, Chief Solutions Officer of Event Solutions Management, is not only an indie meeting professional. She is passionate about empowering meeting professionals to live their best life, by realizing their career goals through event industry certifications. Ellen’s parents were teachers, so she was taught early that we all succeed when we help someone else up.

For nearly fifteen years, Ellen has led more than 2000 meeting professionals to earn their certification using an efficient, effective system. By concentrating on three areas, content, test taking skills and confidence, students focus on activities that lead to exam success.

Ellen’s meeting planning niche market is Public Media, planning conferences for non-commercial radio and television associations, with medical meeting thrown in now and then for added challenge. However, her past has had her planning as a DMC, in corporate and university settings and as a theatrical stage manager on and off Broadway.

Ellen is a non-Box-ie thinker and Broadway musical geek who loves electronic gadgets and computer applications. She lives in Tampa, Florida, USA with her lovely husband, Michael, and their two incredible cats, Liberty and Fidget, who have just supervised the writing of this brief biography.


Now I am not going to lie, folks. At the end of some very long days (especially when I was on site visits, flying to and fro or after an event day) it was hard to tune into two hours of CMP exam study prep. Then there was the reading. There are two course books that you will need to read at least some of to pass the exam. Ellen gives you a lot of tips for taking the test, what to look out for and lets you know subject matter that is likely to appear on the test. She also gives you a very precise reading list and lets you know which charts in the text you’ll need to commit to memory.
