Such as being organized, without this skill the functions are sure to fail because this plays a key part in ensuring there is a smooth running recess when going through each individual function. For instance in the planning function if one was not organized the planning process would not be completed in detail or to a sufficient standard. Also it’s so much easier meeting deadlines when you know exactly when they are, what has to be done, and by whom. People with strong organizational skills have an updated calendar and to- do list on them at all times.
I know I couldn’t function without all of my task lists and calendar reminders! They’re a life saver for hitting deadlines and staying on top of multiple projects. These are the things that make an event successful. A secondary similarity between the functions would be the need to be social. If one is social they can benefit from brining other peoples advice on board. This could be used in each separate function such as one might speak to people with a marketing background to get advice on how best to market an event. 50 words Studying the event planning process, identify two major considerations for each step that an event manager would keep in mind while planning. Whilst looking through the planning processes which are; organization, human relations, catering and food services, marketing and fundraising, we can identify two major incinerations which are relevant to each step. The first consideration I would state as being to unsure you are open minded. If one is open minded they can benefit from taking on board information which can help each of any the stages of the event planning process.
If you can stay open minded then fresh ideas and practical thinking will be available and you can get people opinions on the stages to check the event will be run to its full potential. Letting go of control when you open your mind, you free yourself from having to be in complete control of your thoughts. You allow yourself to experience new ideas and thoughts and you halogen the beliefs you currently have. It can be very liberating to look at the world through an open mind. Experiencing changes, opening up your mind to new ideas allows you to the opportunity to change what you think and how you view the world.
Now, this doesn’t mean you necessarily will change your beliefs, but you have the option to when you think with an open mind. Making yourself vulnerable is one of the scariest (and greatest) things about seeing the world through an open mind is making yourself vulnerable. In agreeing to have an open-minded view of the world, you’re admitting you don’t know everything and hat there are possibilities you may not have considered. This vulnerability can be both terrifying and exhilarating. Making mistakes doesn’t seem like it would be much of a benefit, but it truly is.
When you open your mind and allow yourself to see things from others’ perspectives, you allow yourself not only to recognize potential mistakes you’ve made, but also to make new mistakes. Doesn’t sound like much fun, but it’s a great thing to fall and get back up again. Strengthening yourself open-mindedness provides a platform on which you can build, piling one idea on top of another. With an open mind you can learn about new wings and you can use the new ideas to build on the old ideas. Everything you experience can add up, strengthening who you are and what you believe in.
It’s very hard to build on experiences without an open mind. Gaining confidence when you live with an open mind, you have a strong sense of self. You are not confined by your own beliefs, nor are you confined by the beliefs of others. For that reason, you are able to have and gain confidence as you learn more and more about the world around you. Open-mindedness helps you to learn and grow, strengthening your belief in yourself. Being honest there is an honesty hat comes with an open mind because being open-minded means admitting that you aren’t all-knowing.
It means believing that whatever truth you find might always have more to it than you realize. This understanding creates an underlying sense of honesty that permeates the character of anyone who lives with an open mind. The second consideration would be to have good communications with staff and people attained with the event throughout. If we keep up this crucial skill then everyone will understand what is going on. The skill is important for increased success. Successful people communicate effectively. This includes interpersonal and organizational communication.
Interpersonal communication skills connect you with another person so your messages are understood. These include listening skills, making eye contact and maintaining agreement between your verbal and nonverbal communication. Effective organizational skills provide clear and defined policies, procedures and expectations for people within an organization. 614 Words Describe why you feel that the career of event management would be either ‘for you’ or ‘not for you’. Personally I believe the career of event management is for me and there are many reasons why this is. Firstly I like a job which I can put my own stamp on to it.
This is because it gives me a rewarding sense of achievement when I see the work I have done. When I put my own stamp on work it also gives me a feel of I’m doing the job the way I wanted to and this can also be rewarding. Secondly it is important to me to keep myself challenged. A job such as event management means thinking on your feet all the time at this challenges’ me. If you challenge yourself I tend to believe you better yourself and this is what I strive for as I want to aim high and continue to aim high. Thirdly I like this job cause it comes with a great social aspect.
This is important to me as I enjoy networking and meeting new individuals all the time. You can create life friends through this and these are parts of a job you keep with you even after it has finished. Also in my opinion the more people you know in an industry the better as these said people can also help you and your event. 217 Words Identify and describe five personal characteristics that YOU possess, that would help you in an event management career. I would state that the five personal characteristics I possess are the following; Attentive – Giving care or attention.
This is an important skill to have in event management. During the planning process it is important to be attentive so that we give care to any work we do. Would use this in anything from writing emergency produces to booking a stall. It is crucial to not overlook any jobs and quickly pass them off because if they are done correctly and attentively there is little or no risk to mistakes to be made. Hard working – habitually working diligently and for long hours. Event management tends to be a hard job. The job normally would mean unsociable hours, long hours and working flat out.
All this are reasons why it is important to be hard working. One will typically meet deadlines and be successful if they are a hardworking individual and the event is more likely to be successful if they are too. Flexible – adaptable or variable: flexible working hours. Like the above characteristic being flexible is important for a job because of, unsociable hours, long hours and working flat out. Again one will find it easier to meet deadlines if they are flexible. Organized – to arrange methodically or in order. This is important because without it the whole planning process will be hard to complete.
This skill is needed all the time throughout the event as deadlines require organization and these are always coming up throughout the planning process and all need to be met in time. Without this skill also important paperwork could be overlooked and this could have effects on the event. Lastly would say was people skills. This skill goes hand in hand with any event as events require meeting new people all the time. This helps build relationships with people. However its not just new people this may be used for the skill will also come into effect when directing your own staff.
This helps keep moral and titivation within your staff. 342 Words Describe YOUR REACTION to two of the letters that were provided from practitioners in the field of event management Initially my reaction to letter one was one of surprise. This was because in my opinion marketing doesn’t play the most important part in event management. Through my experiences of running events I would say the combination of all aspects of planning, play the most important part of event management. I would state hereby that not anyone is more important than the other. It is just as crucial to insure the venue is safe as it is to market for instance.
I was also left wondering what a marketing approach was and how I would use this in all aspects of event management planning. Having reviewed the second letter I have discovered that agree that the profile laid out in the letter is correct. Each point is important in its own right such as the point that a highly motivated individual is important. This is true as any event will be better off if the individual running it is motivated. Enthusiasm is also a must. This is just as important because if you are enthusiastic about an event you are more likely to want it to succeed.
Being organized is crucial as ell this is because without this skill an event may fall apart, bits might be missed or shortfalls may occur. The next point is interpersonal skills this is also important, this skill allows you to network with people and bring fresh ideas and challenges you to keep rethinking about what you are doing. The other points are just as important, and this is why all of these points together are important for a complete profile. I also agree that the career of event management is a rewarding one. I have seen this for myself when running events and have definitely felt like this.
