So you’re organising an event, and have high hopes it will be successful. If you are like are many other budding event organisers, you are probably a bit of a control freak. You know how you like things to be done, and you want everything to be done to his standard. Despite good intentions, overseeing every element of the event may well prove to be counterintuitive. Here are 3 tips to delegate your way to success.
1. Many budding event organisers waste time paying widespread attention to making various aspects of your event good, instead of spending most of your time making certain aspects of your event great! – To avoid this from happening, ask yourself what are you strengths? People skills, decorating, promotion etc. Once you figure this out, give yourself a role that complements these strengths, and immerse yourself in the role.
2. Identify your areas of weaknesses, and outsource these tasks to competent people. Outsourcing can make a huge difference to the overall professionalism and running of your event. Contrary to popular believe, outsourcing does not always cost a fortune. For example, if one of your areas of weakness is graphic design, use a website like fiverr.com to avail of quality, affordable services.
3. Check in with your team, and outsourced workers regularly. Issue a brief to each member of your event organising team to ensure everyone Is on the same page.
Remember always plan ahead, don’t try to be do everything yourself, and always keep in mind, if an event is worth doing, it is worth doing right! Should you require any further advice with event management please do not hesitate to contact us.
