When an international conference you’ve planned gets rave reviews or a special event you’ve worked on turns out really well, you get a good feeling. You feel like you’re helping people and doing good work. At least I do. And that’s what most people want from a career; something that provides an exciting challenge, rewards their effort and gives them inspiration to achieve great things in the future.
As a Planner you are a Project Manager on each event (conference/meeting/special event/festival, etc.) you organize. To successfully manage and execute your event you require the knowledge to capably oversee many different aspects of the event, including your suppliers.
