Communicating is the keyword of success, we have now understood it all. The events sector is no exception.

From the point of view of customer services, the choice can be very wide, especially in the IT field. From the promotion via social media or mass mailing (broad promotional e-mails) of your event to the experience of the participants through interactive apps, direct streaming and simultaneous translations, the horizons seem to grow a bit more each day.

So, the best event planner you should look for and hire is someone having these features and, of course, the right personality.

A good event planner must be a bit ‘psychological, a bit’ sellers, a bit ‘experts in human relations and a little’ superheroes.

Budget, costs, permits, transport coordination, time and contents management, choice of food, choice of Personnel Management.

But what are the characteristic qualities or better, the personal characteristics that you should have to become an excellent event organizer?

Ability to manage people

Relationship skills and communication skills are two elements that cannot be missed in a single event organ.

If an event planner loses patience quickly and cannot relax in complicated or stressful situations, is not the right person for you.

Know how to handle the unexpected

Unforeseen can happen in every situation. They are lurking around the corner, and when I see him, they jump out of the way and they face you, becoming a beautiful obstacle in the middle of your path.

If you want to be you must be, in any case, overcome it, because not everything always goes the way you want, even if you thought you had planned everything at all point.

The unforeseen events just happen, and they upset everything. Do you want to know what are the most common contingencies? Presentations that do not answer, microphones that are not related to audio problems, speakers or catering providers who for now give you hole, bad weather, and so on and so forth.

In short, you will become a real superhero only when all surprises stop to catch you by surprise.

Stay behind the scenes

Organizing an event does not mean being the protagonist, far from it! A good event manager must stay hidden in the shadows and monitor, or rather pull the ranks of the event, like a good puppeteer.

You do not have to see it, but it is doing a lot of the work to make the show really perfect. He must check that everything works, that it is planned, and if something should not have a fingertip.

Being able to better manage time

The preparation time of an event can be very long, and last several months, if not more than a year; this is because there are many things to prepare, so knowing how to manage the remaining time is an essential gift. When an event planner thinks he’s upfront, he’s on time, and when he thinks he’s keeping up with the roadmap he’s already late. It is important to know how to go straight to the point, i.e. choose the shortest route between two points. An event planner must know how to remove the obstacles and do only what is really necessary, leaving aside irrelevant steps. So, once you will have all these features in one person you may have found the perfect person for you and your business and yes! It’s time to finally hire!
