We talk a lot about ‘attention to detail’ in our business and that’s because we know that in planning an event it will usually be the small items of detail that if they get overlooked can cause problems or difficulties just when you don’t need them.
To assume as the old saying goes makes an Ass out of U and Me.
So much better to check and double check if you are not sure. Name spellings, confirming VIP travel arrangements, technical equipment rehearsals, food sampling sessions, speaker briefings and more are all well worth reviewing in advance of going live.
Risk assessments and contingency planning are excellent disciplines to foresee possible issues and minimise the potential for disruption on the day.
Never assume anything – always check. If you expect the unexpected you’re more likely to be able to take it in your stride and deal with it before anyone else notices.
