Laughed and cried when I read this. Spent far too much blood, sweat and tears on a particular project because my employer spent millions believing the above to be the case. Unbelievable. We will have a beer and a chat about that fiasco one day!!

One thing I learnt early on in my events career was not to take things such as , project changes, budget cuts etc.personally - it’s hard when you’re so passionate about what you do - but it’s “just” business so you do indeed need to keep calm and carry on!
