Here are some important characteristics to look for as you shop around…
Master of Contract Negotiations – On the surface, the measurement of any event is usually attendee satisfaction. However, when all is said and done, the ultimate measurement is cost control. Even a great event with superior attendee satisfaction can be considered unsuccessful when costs come in over budget.
A Mammoth Rolodex on Speed-dial – Most events require a team of planners and vendors who consistently go above and beyond expectations. As the saying goes, it takes a village…sometimes even at 2 a.m.!
Capable of Wearing Many Hats – Right down to filling in as janitor or fireman, quite often cleaning up messes and putting out fires is part of an event planner’s job, both literally and figuratively. Successful planners do it quickly, quietly and efficiently without breaking a sweat, or at least without letting it show!
Unbridled Enthusiasm – High levels of energy and enthusiasm are contagious and can inspire the kind of creativity needed to make an event more productive, more exciting…..more everything!
Dares to be Different – Creative, yet calculated risks can be the difference between an average event and an event that exceeds expectations. Successful event planners not only think outside the box, but they also analyze and control the risks that are sometimes associated with daring to be different.
So, go for it! Just make sure that you have the support of a great team of event planners behind you who will always have your back. Special D Events is here to help.
