Teamwork Makes the Event Work

Updated: Aug 30, 2018

You can have a flawless event that leaves a positive feeling to all attendees, but if you show stress and lack of calmness and trust in your team, people will remember and it will leave a sour taste in their mouth.

Your #eventteamwork must include:

  • An #eventleader providing concise direction and delegating equally to team members. The leader also must uplift the team through challenges and encourage the team members to work together. The energy all trickles from the top

  • When an error arises, all hands must be on deck. Whenever possible, every team member should help out, despite pending tasks that are less pressing

  • If an event attendee or a vendor has an issue with one of the team members, the other team member(s) should help resolve and never bash anyone

  • If a team member is slacking, that should be addressed immediately. For minor challenges, keep the positive vibes flowing and have a group discussion post event. The goal is to keep stamina and positivity during the event. People are always watching

  • Avoid the blame game. Ever. Find constructive ways to improve future events

  • Laugh. A lot! Think about when you are at a coffee shop or a fast food restaurant and the team is getting along well. The service is smooth and it's with a smile. That's the kind of energy you want to portray at your event

  • Always ask your team members, "How can I help?". Even if the event is on track to be a success, just keep pushing further to see what can be added or done even better
