Tips for an Executive Personal Assistant on Organising a Conference
Start with the specifics. As with any event, communication is crucial to event planning. Be sure to talk to your boss to set expectations and enquire about the intended outcome. Confirm the budget, the purpose of the event, the number of people expected to attend, the facilities needed, and the other significant aspects of the conference. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. You don’t have to limit yourself to everyday venues or traditional setups. Find an unexpected but highly suitable venue that is certain to impress your boss as well as the conference participants. Naturally, you will still need to run these ideas by your boss, so make sure your plans are solid and well-thought-out before you deliver your presentation.
