Event planning and production can be very rewarding, whether a staff
person, a supplier or the event planner or proeucder. When someone
finally is THE event planner or event producer we know that should mean that the person is both knowledgable and experienced.
follows then, that the event planner or event producer must have enough
knoweldge and experience to know which vendors and contractors to bring
into the event, as well as a good plan. With experience and knowledge
should come self assurance and the ability to trust. If the event
planner doesn't trust his vendors or contractors he'll have a tendency
to micromanage. Becoming over worked and not allowing people to do
their job results. This could negatively affect performance and an
event that doesn't meet the potential of its vendors.
empowerment are crucial to success. Its' amazing how much one can
accomplish, often more than you'd ever expect, when a supplier feels
respected and empowered by the planner and can take ownership of his
part of the project.
Not to sound simplistic, but being able to trust and empower becomes a "win-win" for all and a successful event production.
