James Spellos

James Spellos is the President of Meeting U., a company specializing in helping people become more productive and comfortable with technology.

Jim is certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS). He delivers over 100 seminars annually on how to use technology more efficiently, and how it is altering the nature of business. He was a faculty member at New York University, teaching in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies for over 25 years. 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-poverty, anti-hunger think tank, which supports food recovery for over 43,000 agencies in North America by recovering excess food from events. Jim co-created for them their Whole Earth Calculator app, which helps organizations identify the quantity of food donated and carbon footprint reduced by an organization helping to recover excess food from events. Jim’s focus on food recovery has culminated in a place on the inaugural BizBash 500 people in the events industry for his sustainability efforts.

Outside of the meetings industry, Jim is an accomplished musician and songwriter, playing guitar and keyboards, and when not traveling, is in his home studio recording new original material for release later this year.
