Event planners work is considered energizing. This line of work is also considered fast paced and demanding. Putting “teams” together and working towards this goal requires check lists and participation. Everyone takes a piece of the pie. I have worked and volunteered with many events and all have been successful and fun.
Here is when to step back.. Too many people in the “kitchen” so to speak – everyone is stirring the pot.. when this happens, its best to get out and find another place that you can be helpful and assist. It’s at most events everyone would like to take a leadership role and it should be determined beforehand who does what and where you are needed the most.
At the end of the event you should look at things you can improve on. This is a successful way of determining and measuring on how your teams work together. Go back to the check list, what worked and what could be improved. Remember with all events you need to take pictures – make sure you take lots 😉
