Ask any meeting planner and they will tell you, it takes a whole heck of a lot to plan a successful meeting. It makes no difference whether you’re new at this or have planned more meetings than you care to remember.
Whether it’s a business meeting, a conference meeting or a staff meeting, preparedness and organization is the key…the key to success! The purpose of most meetings is to bring people together for a shared goal. And it is the meeting planner’s responsibility to ensure that this is accomplished flawlessly. A meeting planner is in charge of organizing every detail from soup to nuts.
Ready to have a look at what happens when those attending the meeting do not come prepared? See how it can go wrong, really wrong, really fast. Thanks to this SNL (Saturday Night Live) digital short it’s a lesson well learned.
