The Human Side of Event Organisation

A presentation at ConfConf in in Bristol, UK by Marc Thiele

Good Events Managers understand what makes their audience, speakers and sponsors tick.

We try to consider preferences, emotions, comforts and the all-round human condition to create the best environment and experience possible for everyone involved. But what kind of emotional roller coaster should we expect, as organisers? In this talk, Marc will chart the highlights and low points to be expected and prepared for as a planner. Learn when to grow a thick skin, as well as how to deal with the doubts, worries and crazy highs of running an event from first concept to closing keynote.
