Ad­vice for Stress-Free Event Plan­ning

Pam McCarthy of Five Star Events shares quick tips for stay­ing sane amid the chaos

Alberta Venture - - The Briefing -

Life is all about learn­ing to ac­cept the

things you can’t con­trol, and so is event plan­ning. If you’re plan­ning one right now, you might suf­fer a minia­ture panic at­tack just imag­in­ing some worst-case, un­con­trol­lable sce­nar­ios: flight de­layed; “Where’s my driver?”; sal­mo­nella; flash flood. There are count­less things to worry about that you don’t even know you should worry about. And, wor­ry­ing aside, there’s not much you can do about it.

But de­s­pair not. No event will ever sail by without a hitch, but you can learn to man­age the mis­takes. What’s im­por­tant is that you hide your er­rors from your guests. You know you can’t con­trol ev­ery­thing, but they don’t. With that in mind, Pam McCarthy re­turns with ad­vice on the prob­lems that are in your con­trol.
