And why am I so happy, you ask?
Because I attended an Events Management Seminar for work today. ^___________________^
. . . okay, before I get into details on what I learned and all that hoo-haa, can I just say that I love my job? I’m grateful for all the learning opportunities that come my way! There have been so many of them already, blogging about them would take bazillions of pages.
Most of you know that I write, but events management is one of my passions, too. Mind you, I didn’t volunteer right out to be part of this. That’s why when I was asked to attend the seminar, I was squirming in my seat out of sheer excitement.
Anywayyyyy. . .
For the most part we had a classroom discussion and learned a lot of valuable stuff. I learned that being OC is normal for an events organizer. XD I also learned the importance of teamwork and a fanatical devotion to detail. Other people’s input is important because it allows you not to miss details you otherwise might have missed.
My highlight of the day was planning for an “event.” We were all divided into teams and assigned to create an event complete with budgeting, committees, promotions, the works! Brainstorming for the event was pretty exciting because it was a chance to practice what I learned not just in the discussion, but also on my daily routine (Teammates, you rock~!!!) I normally don’t like talking in front of an audience but I was happy to volunteer for our group presentation. I don’t care if you think I’m weird, but explaining all the nitty-gritty stuff of our “event” gave me a thrill!
It’s not all the time that we get to do the things that we love the most. . . and I’m just really, really, really thankful that I received this chance to learn. I look forward to apply what I learned today.
