The ABC’s of RVE – Y & Z

As Austin’s premier events planning company, Red Velvet Events knows what it takes to succeed in the industry. A big part of our success is about giving our clients what they want, to the letter! And that got us thinking about the ABCs of RVE and professional event management. This is the latest in a series of posts which we hope will spell out success in this business – from A to Z!

Y is for Youthful.

Event planning is a stressful industry and, as studies have shown, stress can easily age you. Take a look at how kids behave. They are in a constant state of wonderment! They’re always asking questions, attempting the impossible, and creating from scratch. A successful event planner will incorporate those very activities into their events! Try on a lot of different hats. Be constantly coming up with creative solutions to dilemmas. Creativity will keep you feeling young and your clients feeling happy!

Z is for Zoom Zoom!

Yes, like Mazda’s mantra. For the RVE staff, this sums up the world of corporate event planning. Zoom Zoom! Always be on the go! Have a Catch me if you can, I’m the gingerbread man mentality! Could you slow down? Absolutely. But, so will your growth, your reputation, your learning curve, and your climb up the success ladder. The economy is picking up and corporations are enjoying healthy marketing/advertising budgets again. Successful event planners will always be ready to take advantage of any opportunity to work!
