Peer Genius: Advice for New Meeting Planners

peer_644

“Build solid relationships with your partners. As planners, we dream up how everything will look, sound, and taste, and then work with our partners to create that reality. Inevitably, something will happen to challenge that vision—a thunderstorm will arrive just before your Welcome Reception by the pool, or you’ll be asked to bring in special equipment for a keynote speaker the day before they present. It will happen. Our job is to resolve the issue in a way that no one ever knows there was an issue. If you have a solid relationship with your partners, they will have your back—and you can overcome any obstacle together!”
