Instructor Michele Lago (left) is an event planner and sports marketer who has worked at five Olympic games, six Super Bowls, and two Masters. Her client list includes The Coca-Cola Company, SportsMark, Special Olympics, and The Sports Authority. During an interview with Michele, we asked what her most exciting event was. She said:

“My favorite event during that time (and my husband would likely agree) was the 2007 [Sports Illustrated] Swimsuit Issue Launch Party. That was the year Beyoncé was on the cover, and we hosted a 750-person VIP party in Hollywood with all the swimsuit models. The party was logistically and creatively challenging and was one of my first large high-profile events that I managed, so I always think back on it and smile.”
