Highlight Story

1. Be a people person:

Managing an event requires a lot of interaction with people, from vendors to clients. You need to be a good communicator - you will need to make successful presentations, and at the same time, you must be able to communicate effectively with delivery boys, furniture suppliers, technicians, etc.

2. Have a can-do-it attitude:
Event management is about keeping a client happy, even if requests seem bizarre at times.

3. Be up-to-date with new developments:
whether it's technical know-how, company mergers (thereby creating a business opportunity for you), or knowing which actress is the flavour of the moment.
