  • How do you deal with clients who are constant nags or stress about every little detail?

    This part is not only for the client servicing people but, is for everyone working in that firm. We have been taught one things rigorously that the “Client is always right”, but with my experience it is different. Everyone has a different aspect of seeing things, what we need to do as event managers is to evaluate and tell the client where there right and where they are wrong. The aim is to involve the client in your team for a successful event and about stress well this job is all about taking extra stress in your daily lifestyle!

  • How do you deal with an immediate crisis or error committed by you during an event?

    Well during any of crisis we face in our industry we term that as crisis management. Crisis management is itself a very crucial job inter events industry. As we learn there is always a crisis knocking on the door as soon as our event is about to begin. Now crisis can be of different mediums some can be small and some can be big, what we need to do is keep ourself calm and find a solution. As event managers our work is to give solutions to the client, even if we don’t find it we seek help from a third party but, we never give up. I usually try to evaluate the problem and find a solution if I don’t find any I do seek help from my seniors or my event colleagues.

  • Is there any event managing software that an aspirant should learn before getting on board?

    Well there might be which I am unaware about, for me this industry is more about learning things practically. This industry is not about knowledge from the books, yes you can google and learn terms we use but, how we use and what are the different aspects of it can only be learned while you are on ground, so my advice is to start doing internships and get the knowledge of the industry you have been looking up online.

  • Should event management aspirants sign up for a course before entering the profession?

    Well it depends on person to person. I have studied media science where I have not only learned things about event management but, about all the different variations in the event industry. After years of being in this space I have realised that what we learn while we are on ground is something more important and valuable here.

  • How do you manage to manage a quality event on a limited budget?

    Budget constrain is the most important part of the whole event. Everything depends on what the budget is going to be like, but we can always have a great event in a limited budget too. For this more of research on elements and designs that are classy yet fits into our limited budget is what needs to be done.

    Punctuality, smart worker, creative mindset and well we can go on with that. You are event ready when you are ready for a roller coaster ride!

  • How do you make your decisions on sourcing reliable partners and suppliers for an event?

    To be honest it depends, we evaluate it with the whole team. We have vendors with whom we have worked from ages so they automatically become reliable but, if we find some new vendor who have better stuff and better rates we try taking the risk.

  • How should an aspirant get their first break with event management?

    Internships help a lot, I have worked in different fields of the media industry. So that helped me evaluate event management as my first step. You need to see and choose where to go and need to do reasearch on different event agencies and their work profile.
