Don't over stress, not everything will happen as planned. The most important is your audience!
Yes because you might not remember everything especially if you work on other things in the meantime.
Plan, Measure as much as possible - Use old data wisely - Work on B as much as A
one big thing i have learnt is no matter how good you plan things theirs always 1 thing that's not going to work out perfect so be ready and be creative because its need when thinking on your feet
Precise documentation & proper e-filing can ease work for your next event and keep auditors at bay!
On event day - have fun, keep smiling and always expect the unexpected and never assume the expected!
@merv_bata is this 17 words?
When installing an exhibition don't wear flip flops, even if its 28 degrees! Result = hospital trip!
Manage the flows (registration, breaks, activities...): important for safety, security and overall outlook!
The single most important thin I've learnt as an event organiser so far in 2017...
Utilise experienced people, they probably want to add value to your event! Remember: “shy bairns get nowt”.
Never underestimate your power to make things happen and manage a crisis when all hope is lost.
To all the way through, keep as close communication as possible with as many attendees as possible.
That there is no such thing as a perfect event so you learn with every single one
Buy lots of gin but don't drink it until after the event is over; number one tip!
Don't let the wingers get you down, gain something from their complaining.
Unfortunately yes, have two nice scars along my foot now as well, which doesn't look so great in flip flops anymore hahaha
That goes beyond suffering for your art...poor you!
Balance is key and health is priority number one, no matter how exciting my events might be.
