Burnout is a common occurrence in many creative fields, including event planning. As planners, we run the gauntlet of stressful situations: financial decisions and their impact, long hours, difficult people, lots and lots of decisions, extreme levels of multitasking, and never-ending details. There is no doubt that event planning is challenging, but it’s conquering those challenges that makes us love it!
This session will explore some key elements including succession planning (it’s fun to have everything and everyone rely on you – until it isn’t), manage and engage volunteers and (hey type A’s – this one is for you) learn how to delegate. And, you will have time to engage and network with your peers as you collective explore how others cross train, recruit, manage and delegate to volunteers.
