Event planning can be a 24/7 affair which is why event professionals have to have exceptional organisational ability and time management skills.
Whether you’re in charge of event management in your company or are involved with planning a special private event, poor time management can result in a disastrous event. In this two-part post we’ll look at six tips for effective time management when planning an event.
Change your outlook
Planning an event is stressful enough without dwelling on it so try and view the experience as positively as possible. Make sure your focus is on the quality of the tasks you are completing and not the quantity. Where possible and suitable delegate because you shouldn’t have to carry the weight of an entire event on your own. Remember no matter what you are doing event planning should be fun.

Determine your productivity personality
Align your event management style with the way you work most effectively. Understand how you best absorb information: are you into visual or auditory cues, do you like old fashioned methods or are you into technology? All of these factors could affect how you get through the planning process and because every person is different what works for someone you know may not necessarily work for you.
Take care of yourself
Make sure you set aside enough time to take care of yourself throughout the planning process to avoid burning out. Take time out to nurture yourself, get enough sleep, eat a balanced diet, get some exercise and participate in activities you love. Setting aside some “you time” is a good way to recharge your batteries and keep the creative juices flowing.
