Episode Highlights

  • Be an event planner that stands by your word. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Do the things you set out to do.
  • Offer your input and suggestions when they are being asked. You never know how your insight can help others with what they do.
  • Refrain from giving unsolicited advice, always ask so that your suggestions are received well by others.
  • Focus on managing your time well. It’s important to find unique ways to handle your responsibilities so that you are able to take on more.
  • Tie up all your loose ends well. This is helpful in times of transition. Make sure that you are transparent, and getting others what they need to be successful..
  • Communicate often, and communicate clearly. So many challenges happen because the direction or a particular situation isn’t made clear.
  • Lean into opportunity when it arises. If there is a need for help, be the person that raises their hand to help and do it well.
  • Earn a certificate or designation. Consider the CMP certificate for meeting planners.
