There is no set way of planning an event as each experience is completely unique with its own set of deliverables that can be worked through in the planning process. Our services are robust enough to accommodate every type of request and flexible enough to adapt to each situation at the drop of a hat. Any event professional will tell you that the swan effect is an expected manoeuvre that needs to be perfected, delivered en pointe and without any feather ruffling at all. “Yeah right!”, I hear you say. The truth is that there is no such thing as a perfect event and it is the unexpected twists, turns and challenges that makes events so exciting to be a part of.
There are of course methods that can be deployed across the board that aid the transition process from the initial idea, throughout the planning and into the delivery stages of a project. Always embrace and encourage your host or client to ask questions which will relieve certain pressures and foster an environment of trust, regardless of the outcome. Transparency is crucial to ensure consistency across the visual identity of the event and for all partners involved in providing services that form part of the wider planning and delivery. We are regularly asked questions and enjoy learning from these queries which ultimately enable us to aim bigger and to deliver great things time and time again.
