Behind the Scenes with Kevin Molesworth

 

Introducing our next guest speaker, Kevin Molesworth. Join us at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis to hear Kevin Molesworth, CSEP founder of Brass Tacks Events, speak about how to unleash your creativity.

What does your company do and what makes is different than others like it?

Brass Tacks Events is a production and design firm with offices in Austin and Philadelphia.  I would say the thing that sets us apart from other producers is our bold concepts and willingness to take some risks.  We focus on creating a visceral experience for event attendees.  The evolution of our ideas are most often rooted in the 5 senses and the hardwired, natural responses to certain stimuli which all humans are subject.   

 

What lead you to your current career and how long have you been in the field?

I've been at this a long time, having started my career in live theatrical production in New York City.  Working as an actor, director and producer on Broadway and off-Broadway, I was given the opportunity to produce a conference and quickly realized the parallels between theatrical production and live event production.  The transition from one to the other was quite natural.  You can see the theatrical influence in nearly all of the events that we design and produce. 

 

What is your most memorable event/project? Why?

I've been extremely fortunate to be a part of so many memorable events, but probably my favorite was an event that I designed and produced for Make-A-Wish Foundation.  It was a gala event for 300 of the cities top donors and at the very end, the CEO of the Central and South Texas Chapter invited me to the stage.  This was not in the script.  After he delivered to me a thoughtful and sincere thank you for my team's hard work, a wish kid came up on stage and presented me with an award.  It's a rare occasion when I am at a loss for words, but on that evening I was rendered speechless.

 

What is one thing people do not know about you?  

Despite the belief that I am always crazy, over-the-top, and full of energy, I'm actually an ambivert.  (I'll let you google it.)

 

If you were not in your current career, what would be your dream job?

If I wasn't producing events and travelling as a speaker, I think I could see myself spending a lot of my time in a recording studio, just creating music.  I've been a musician since an early age, and I would love to fill a room with a variety of instruments and disappear in a world of sound.

 

Anything else we should know about you?

Sure, plenty...but you'll have to come to one of the ILEA Indiana meetings to learn more.  I thrive on genuine human connection and look forward to meeting lots of new people on the 15th.  

 

Come meet Kevin on March 15 at The Children's Museum at 11:30!
