Pople hold gatherings all the time. From small kids’ birthday parties, to weddings, to company functions and events to launch new products, sign MOUs or conduct press briefings. The scale of the event may vary but whether it’s a mom or company they generally expect one thing from an event organizer – to do the million-and-one things that need looking into for a successful event.
The event organizer is a creative and talented planner, someone who handles a myriad of details and still has the time to smile and have a chit-chat with the client. If there ever was a Jack-of-all-trades, then the event organizer would be the one who fits this description. You will be dealing with anything and everything, from moms and dads to Managers and CEOs to clowns (no joke – the clowns who will be entertaining the kids at the event), to knowing the best locations, speakers, entertainers and caterers!
This job isn’t for the weak-hearted. You’ve got to be a quick-thinker to handle those emergencies that will surely crop up just before the event. You will be someone who has a wide network of connections – from hotels to caterers to entertainment services. Whatever or whoever is needed for the success of the event, you will know where to find it. You are a self-motivated, get-up-and-go, energetic type person who can multitask like crazy. And if you’ve got the business skills plus negotiation, organization and communications savvy to pull it off, a great money-making business awaits you!
