How to become an organizer?
It may seem to you that the organizer of various events should have a whole range of talents, but this is not quite so. Of course, some unique qualities are certainly needed, but most of the abilities can also be developed independently. So let's talk about how to become an organizer.
Necessary qualities of the organizer
Without the ability and desire to communicate in the event management (that is, in organizing entertainment events) there is nothing to do. Therefore, learn to communicate with people and do it, regardless of mood. A good manager should always be fully prepared so as not to lose his advantage.
The organization of any entertainment event requires a non-standard approach from a person. You should be able to come up with interesting numbers, and often improvise, as they say, right "in the course of the play." Or - to find people who know how to do it, and interest them.
The entertainment industry does not tolerate inattentive and forgetful people who do not pay attention to details and are constantly late.If you have already been entrusted with the organization of the holiday, everything must be done on time and without the slightest complaint from the client.
Nobody requires you to know higher mathematics, but you just have to be able to budget an event and allocate funds wisely. You need to know how much will be spent on props, room design, artists' fees, etc. The fact is that the customer only needs to announce the final amount for a particular program, and in such a way that it does not have to pay extra later. Therefore, any sensible organizer should be at least an approximate price for certain services.
How to learn to organize events
Of course, in order to successfully work in the field of event management, it is advisable to get a specialized education, however, experts in the field of communication (for example, psychologists, journalists) may well do without it. The rest will be somewhat more difficult, but if you are lucky to find a good mentor, then the question of education may not even arise.
I also advise you to immediately start building your portfolio.Remember that well-known organizers began to work almost for free. Therefore, call to hold any event, go to where the helpers are required, accumulate experience, and put the results in your notebook and photo and video archive. You can go to work in an agency for the accumulation of experience.
And one more tip: choose your profile. You can arrange any events, but should be known as a narrow specialist. This may be the organization of weddings or children's parties, corporate parties or anniversaries. It is important that people know you, on the one hand, and as a generalist, and on the other, as a person who can do something especially well. In the future, it will become your calling card.
