One of the most important skills needed when managing an event is people skills. You must be able to communicate effectively and manage a team. To manage events successfully, you need to be trustworthy and approachable, this is usually helped by having an eccentric personality. Nobody wants to interact or put you in charge of their event if you appear to be closed off; you need to have the energy required to motivate your team. Share your ideas clearly and succinctly with your team to make sure that everybody is on the same page as you, this enables things to run as smoothly as possible.
In order to run any event, organisation is key. However this is more than just ‘organising your day’ you and your team need to be on top of all the intricate details which are needed to make the big event successful. It is easy to become run down and stressed when organising events, so do be sure to delegate some tasks to your team members. Although structure and order is needed, it is also necessary to be open minded as things can change and you often have no control over them. The key word here is: adapt.
Creativity is necessary in the events management industry; you need to be able to create your client's vision. Innovation and originality are required in order for you to be able to create an event which stands out and makes a lasting memory. This is great for both you and the client as it is a chance to showcase your work and it can lead to further business opportunities.
Tech And Media
One of the biggest changes in recent years within the work industry is the implementation of technology. It is imperative that you understand how to use the technology required to run the event. This can include equipment but most importantly, social media. You may be required to post images and videos for your client, so you must be ‘tech savvy’ and learn how to use popular social media platforms such as: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
