Is burnout inevitable? Many event industry professionals think that it is. With so much pressure in the industry, combined with unreasonable expectations, lack of boundaries, and high volumes, burnout is a very common result.

Burnout shouldn’t be targeted as inevitable in the industry, because it is preventable. If burnout is preventable, then finding ways to proactively address burnout in our lives and in our organizations is a solution worth pursuing.

The first step to learning how to address burnout is to become more aware of what burnout really is. Understanding burnout is the number one occupational risk of today.
