Event Coordinator Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Event Coordinator in Colorado Springs:
"Event Coordination 101."
I would advise a new Event Coordinator to be friendly and direct. Time management and organization are key. It's important to have a solid method of organizing all your events, tasks, etc. I recommend an organization software like Asana or Cvent. I would also say to be yourself. What makes an Event Coordinator different from the rest of the industry is the ability to be relevant, but unique. It's important to have creativity while also mastering the administration aspects. It's an all-encompassing vocation that requires lots of multi-tasking, patience, confidence, and project management skills. Most of all, have fun with what you're doing. If you aren't enjoying it, something isn't right!
