I feel like I should add “ability to make small talk” on the next event planner job description I create for Special D Events. Not everyone is “wired” to strike up conversations with people at random, and I’ll admit to being one of them. Successful event planners, however, must be able to step out from behind the curtain and mingle with their attendees. It’s the best way to obtain immediate feedback on the event and also gain insight into the culture and preferences of the guests and their industry.
I discovered some tips for successful mingling via a Linked In post today, so I thought I would pass them along. Do you have any other tips?
