An ode to Event Management or If … (with apologies to Rudyard Kipling)

I penned this short poem after a recent lecture to Event Management students at Sunderland University. The question asked was around ‘What traits do you need to be an Event Manager’ this is my poetic response.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can wait for hours to eat or drink or go to the loo

If you’re passionate and care about the smallest detail
If you can go the extra mile to make sure that you don’t fail

If you can work long hours and work to deadlines so tight
If you can cope with the highs and the lows, the dark and the light

If you don’t take no for an answer but keep people on side
If you can handle pressure and do your work with pride

If you can still be smiling when the last person is there
If you can be fair when all around you are unfair

If you can do all this without going round the bend
You too can be, an Event Manager, my friend!
