Accessorize your lifestyle;) This is my other blog. Check it out!
If this is your passion then be passionate about it. Don’t downplay your importance when people ask what you do.
Put your blood and sweat into what you do and at the end you’ll feel as if you conquered the world.
If you tried and it wasn’t what you thought it would be, try a different approach. Maybe you’re doing the wrong types of events.
Whatever the level of excitement, keep your mouth shut until you have confirmation and you have a budget.
This challenge rocked!
Yelling gets you nowhere. It also gets you a reputation. Keep your cool, always appear as if everything is under control.
Youth events are great. Don’t do them if you’re not in to kids. They’ll be everywhere.
Yellow is the color of obsession. Try avoiding an over saturated yellow when theming your event.
I hate this letter. “Z” probably won’t be any better.
If you’re honestly considering Event Coordinating as a career you’re considering giving up your weekends and holidays. There’s no getting around it.
World Wide Web
Keep your social media profile professional. Nothing you put online can ever really disappear. If you want to be taken seriously, carry yourself properly.
Go to other people’s events and mingle. Don’t be a salesperson. Be charming, be smart, be witty. Be ready to convince others that you have what it takes. Be worthy of being remembered.
Your skills are priceless, actually they’re quite pricey. People appreciate and remember your good deeds. Volunteer your time and expertise with one organization. Build a relationship with them, be genuine about whatever tasks you take on. You’re making a better world, creating valuable relationships and building your resume.
Understand the Use of Time
Sometimes a shorter event is more effective than a longer one. You don’t want to lose the attention of your guests and have your overall goal be lost because of this.
~Practice your speech ahead of time if you have to give one.
~ Try having keynote speakers before the heavier drinking commences.
~ Don’t have a keynote speaker come out while food is being served.
~ Stick to your speech script or note card, the more you venture seat from your notes the more you ramble. You lose attention that way.
~ Verbally announce the end of cocktail hour, people won’t just happily usher themselves away from free booze.
~ Do a run through a day or more before the actual event. Walk through every single step you’ll take the day of the event. Take real notes of everything you notice you need to be prepared for. Mental notes disappear until after the fact.
That’s all U are getting from me today!
