The Harsh Truth About being a Working Mum in the Events Industry
Balancing life as a working Mum can be challenging.
Five harsh truths about being a working Mum in the events industry…
- Working to strict time schedules and preparing for events in advance is a piece of cake for an organised Event Pro.
- You’ve had years of experience working under pressure in stressful environments, handling problematic clients, negotiating with ruthless suppliers and problem solving like there’s no tomorrow… Dealing with kids should be a piece of cake, right?
- Communicating with a variety of stakeholders and keeping everyone involved in the loop… You know you’ll end up running the PTA one day.
- Delegating tasks and pulling in external resources to get the job done – you can do it without breaking a sweat.
