In this day and age most people don’t tend to plan their own events. They generally hire someone to do it for them because it is easier and it is generally done more professionally that way. So there is a lot of event management companies that keep coming up. However not all of them are successful. There are certain traits that you need to acquire or hone if you already have them to be successful. For one you need to be able to plan for any unforeseen circumstances that you might end up facing. You need to be so good at it that your back up plans need to have backup plans. You also need to triple check everything that you do. You can’t have something gong missing or end up withsomething not working properly.
For an example if you are using a dmx controller you need to make sure that everything is connected to it properly and that everything is functioning properly before the event starts. You must also keep in mind that this is no easy job. You are going to have to deal with annoying clients, clients who want you to work miracles with a tight budget etc. You need to be passionate enough about your job to be numb to all these things and have the ability to plow forward and do what needs to be done. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be a good listener with your clients, it just means that you need to learn how to manage them. On that same note you also need to be flexibleas well so as to try and fit in as many requests of the client as possible. On that not of tight budgets you also need to be adaptable and highly resourceful. For an example if your client wants a dimmable led driver and he can’t afford it on his budget you either need to find a place you can get it for cheaper or find a good alternative that your client can use instead. Things can go wrong in so many different ways.
You need to be able to remain calm and collected during such times and have the ability to do what needs to be done. The client is relying on you do get it done and you need to deliver. It is also a good idea to always be able to look at the bigger picture, it helps you to better organize everything. on that note you also need to have an eye for detail. This can help you improve a great many things as well help you to help avoid certain situations. Finally, you need to have a great deal of humility as well. If you cultivate these traits I am sure your business will end up doing pretty well for itself.
