ABOUT SCURRY STREET
Nann S. Philips, CMP, CMM, DES
1304 Scurry Street
Big Spring, TX
My first job at a fast-casual fried chicken restaurant (way before “fast casual” was a thing) taught me the fundamentals of creating memorable experiences, providing exceptional customer service, and working as part of a team. Getting up at 4 a.m. and hitting the pillow at midnight reinforced the strong work ethic my mother had already instilled. Fast forward about 15 years and those lessons came into play with my first role in the events industry, organizing job fairs and corporate events for a Dallas-based media company. I didn’t want the job. I thought, “I’m in advertising sales – why would I want to be in charge of events?” As they say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
Now, after more than two decades of “being in charge of events”, I work with organizations to make their business events even better – developing sponsorship and exhibit programs, improving attendee experiences, and helping them make thoughtful, strategic decisions about event design, marketing, communications, and technology. Scurry Street is named after the home where I lived as a child, to honor my family and remember my roots. It's been quite a journey from that little green bungalow in the red West Texas dirt.
When I’m not helping my clients, my husband and I explore the world through travel and food and spend an unreasonable amount of time spoiling our two rescue pups and unofficial company mascots, Marshy (sweet, shy Pittie mix) and Freddie (sorta sweet, not shy Terrier mix). And I still love fried chicken.
