Do your family and friends look to you to plan their events because you’re the organized one?
It’s probably fair to say that if something needs to be planned you’re the one people look to, right?
Planning and organizing events may come naturally to you, but do you have the event planning training you need? The knowledge to (comfortably) negotiate with vendors, suppliers, or hotels; do you understand what A/V (audio visual) you’ll need for your event, or how to hire the right speaker?
As you may already know, I believe the most important skill to be a successful event planner is the ability to communicate (whether you’re an extrovert or an introvert).
And, no matter what level of experience you have right now, it often requires some guidance to learn the tricks of the trade.
It can be so confusing and overwhelming trying to decide which part of the event to focus on first, which vendors to contact and what questions to ask them. Especially if you’re just getting started and haven’t had registered for an event planning course.
As an event manager, you have to wear a lot of hats and keep it together when things don’t go as planned. So, how do you know if event planning is right for you?
