Ah, the wonderful world of meeting and event management. From the outside it looks like a pretty glamorous industry. Now I’m not trying to take away from the positive attributes of this wonderful industry. Rather, I’m just making a case for those that get into this industry for all of the wrong reasons.
Have you ever had a family or friend (that aren’t in the industry) say to you: Oh your job is so glamorous you get to travel to all these exotic locations, etc. etc? And, if you’re like me, you’re inside voice is screaming are you freaking serious?? Glamorous? You try doing what I do for a day and you’ll know just how bloody glamorous it can be.
