INTERVIEW WITH THE BOSS: REBECCA
How can you effectively manage the stress of planning a large corporate event?
Well, one effective way to manage stress when planning a large corporate event is to break down the project into smaller, more manageable tasks. This allows you to focus on one task at a time, rather than becoming overwhelmed by the enormity of the entire project. Additionally, taking breaks, I like to drink tea whilst practising mindfulness, Qi Gong or Pilates really helps me. Engaging in physical activity can also help reduce stress levels. Also working with great suppliers and vendors is excellent, having healthy and easy working relationships makes planning events stress-free and fun!
What are some strategies you use to ensure that event planning does not impact your mental health?
I prioritize self-care and work-life balance. This means setting boundaries around work hours and making time for fun activities outside of work. I may delegate tasks to other team members or seek external support, such as hiring a freelance event planner, to alleviate some of the pressure.
How do you prioritize tasks when planning an event to minimize stress and maximize productivity?
I start by identifying the most critical deadlines and working backwards to create a timeline. This helps ensure that all essential tasks are completed on time, and allows for more flexibility when addressing unexpected issues, which in Events trust me there always are. I always use tools like project management software or spreadsheets to keep track of tasks and deadlines. STAYING ORGANISED, this is key.
What steps do you take to create a positive and motivating atmosphere for event planning teams?
Creating a positive and motivating atmosphere for event planning teams involves fostering open communication and encouraging collaboration. I strive to create a team culture that values diverse perspectives and encourages everyone to contribute their ideas. Plus, recognizing team members for their hard work.
What role does technology play in creating a stress-free event planning process?
Technology can play a significant role in creating a stress-free event planning process by streamlining tasks, improving communication, and reducing the risk of human error. Tools like project management software, event planning apps, and online registration systems can all help save time and increase efficiency. Additionally, technology can provide real-time updates and alerts, allowing for quick responses to unexpected changes or issues.
How do you handle unexpected changes or problems that arise during event planning to prevent stress from escalating?
To handle unexpected changes or problems during event planning, I remain flexible and adaptable. This may involve having contingency plans in place, such as backup vendors or alternate event spaces, to address unforeseen issues. Ensuring clear negotiations and agreements are in place with vendors is key.
How do you ensure that attendees have a positive experience while also minimizing stress for event organizers?
One of the most important aspects of ensuring a positive attendee experience while minimizing stress for event organizers is effective planning and organization. This involves using top-searched corporate event-related keywords such as automation, communication, and logistics. By automating repetitive tasks like registration, and using effective communication strategies to keep attendees informed about logistics and schedules, event organizers can reduce their workload while providing a seamless experience for attendees, we recently used CVENT for a big event in Barcelona this year.
Keep it simple, don’t overcomplicate it. We think of every detail but we don’t want to overthink every detail.
Other strategies that can be employed include using personalized experiences, incorporating fun activities and networking opportunities, and providing clear instructions and support throughout the event. Event organizers can also make use of technology such as event apps to help attendees navigate the event and provide feedback in real-time.
What are some psychological strategies you use to stay motivated and focused during event planning, even when facing stressful situations?
Event planning can be a stressful job, and it’s important to have effective psychological strategies to stay motivated and focused.
- Mindfulness: Practicing mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, and visualization can help reduce stress and increase focus during event planning.
- Goal-setting: Setting clear goals for the event and breaking them down into smaller, achievable tasks can help stay motivated and focused on the bigger picture.
- Positive thinking: Maintaining a positive mindset and focusing on the things that are going well can help to reduce stress and increase motivation.
- Time management: Effectively managing time by prioritizing tasks, delegating responsibilities, and scheduling breaks can help to avoid burnout and increase productivity.
- Collaboration: Building a supportive team and collaborating with colleagues can help to share the workload and reduce stress levels.
