Planners have the skills to be Top Executives. They are…
– Meeting planners evaluate technologies needed for a number of situations and
then hire and manage people with the technical abilities to handle those areas.
– Planners manage multiple teams in many areas providing managerial skills with a strong human
resources emphasis. We hire, train and retain the best people, whether within or on an outsourcing basis.
– Planners demonstrate both sales and marketing skills. Seminar topics chosen, speakers hired, brochures
written and other incentives created to increase attendance or build enthusiasm.
– Planners have a basic executive ability, the “art of the long view”. They are prepared, like any good
executive, to answer the question “how will this meeting further the goals and missions of the organization”.
