I came across this article on Meetings + Incentive Travel and thought it was very timely and appropriate to share. As someone who is still relatively new to the events industry (especially compared to my colleagues at Cantrav who have been around for 10-22+ years), and always tries to share useful info for people just starting out or interested in becoming an event planner, this article by Les Selby CMP CMM gives some useful insight that would benefit us all.

For myself, I think keeping an open mind (#3) and admitting your mistakes (#5) is extremely important and something I need to continuously work on. Another struggle I face as someone who grew up in the tech age is picking up the phone rather than emailing them (#7). It seems like second nature for me to whip off a quick email rather than sit and call someone but I’ve definitely learned during my time with Cantrav so far that it is much faster and much easier to clear up any misunderstandings or acquire that info that you desperately need.
