It should come as no surprise that event organizing is not for the faint of heart or the weak of will. Put another way—it's no cakewalk! And we're not talking birthday parties or ice cream socials. We're talking those behemoth, took-a-year-to-plan, multi-wifi-passworded happenings. We're talking about events where you, intrepid organizer, find yourself doing everything from delivering the vegans their tempeh dinners and ensuring the projector is plugged into the right port, to maintaining communication with your thousands of event attendees, just to confirm they are signed up for the raffle and that happy hour will begin earlier than expected. (You're known for being a great host.)
If you think that in order to conquer this job properly, you must tether yourself to two cell phones, a stack of papers, and an army of interns to do your bidding, think again.
