So you have an event and need to hire someone GREAT to produce it. But what separates any old decent event planner from the truly GREAT event planner? Put your candidates to the test!
GREAT event planners are:
Agile: Event roadblocks are inevitable and can come at anytime during the process and be of any shape and size. The ability to willingly change courses when one road is no longer feasible is one of the most important attributes of any event planner. With their cat-like agility they are able to foresee (and plan for) any barriers that might stand in their way. Great event planners can hack any situation covertly and with ease, making them super useful under-pressure. They are tirelessly resourceful and come prepared for any unexpected situation.
Creative Warriors: Great event planners will challenge you. We know your event is an opportunity to accomplish business goals and should be strategic and purposeful. Great planners will push you to critically define specific goals for your event and build a road-map for the experience. Great planners will help you to produce a completely unique, memorable and above all impactful experience curated around your goals and geared for your target audience. The quality of the experience you provide your attendees is in direct relationship to the success of your event and return on investment.
Charmingly Pushy: As natural born leaders, these exceptional humans are proficient at assembling and managing competent teams of professionals. These masters of communication, know how to get what they need without ruffling any feathers.
Cool as a Cucumber: When stresses run high great event planners are like a breath of calm beach air. Naturally serene during a perceived crisis relieves the intensity of the situation so solutions can be realized. Great event planners will keep you and those around you calm so you can take in the success of your event.
X-Factor: GREAT event planners are acutely aware of how experiences are being perceived by attendees. Their expectation to adhere to a certain level of detail is sometimes seen as over the top but the quality that is realized event day is invaluable. A critical eye comes naturally to these individuals and their level of professionalism is unwavering.
