A solid communication process is key for nailing that “effective event operations” stuff.

Health & Safety isn’t the sexiest topic to think or talk about when you’re planning your next big event, but being aware of the Health & Safety risks associated with your event is integral to it running smoothly and keeping everyone attending or working at your event safe. It’s fair to say, that in the past, it hasn’t always been given the attention it needs in the event planning stages, which can have - and has had at times - a detrimental impact. With a change in focus, and heightened “due diligence” required around this, there’s measures event professionals can and should put in place to ensure they’re taking Health & Safety seriously.

We’re not quite at Murphy’s Law – “anything that can go wrong will go wrong” -- levels of peril. But no matter how hard you try to mitigate risks, some of them will likely lead to the odd incident here and there during your events.
The power of social media is universally known and it’s no myth that it’s an invaluable platform in the events industry. Earlier this year, Event Manager Blog’s survey revealed that “social media is of high importance to eventprofs” like you, and particularly for “pre-event management..with almost 90% typically using social media for this purpose”.
Discover the power of setting the right expectations for your event volunteers and staff. Communication and expectation setting could be the difference between a good event and a great event – these people are the face of your event, after all.
