According to Wikipedia, Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. Yikes – so formal! So how can something so formal translate into fun, energizing and beautiful events?
Project managers are trained professionals in the art of managing timelines, budgets, resources and risks. They study these different areas and learn inputs, outputs and techniques for managing all these moving parts to the successful conclusion of the project. They are creative problem solvers by nature, excellent leaders, and skilled at balancing constraints.
Project managers are always looking ahead into the future – remember that event vision, timeline and budget that you created at the beginning of your event planning process? We project managers pour over that collateral. It becomes our compass to ensure that your event is successful.
We also identify these things called milestones – points in time in the planning process. Identification and management to these milestones ensure that you are planning at a smooth, organized pace and not running around while guests are pulling up. Event planning is a marathon, not a sprint.
Using our formal training, project managers will deliver you a smooth, successful event. We will take the stress out of the pre-event crunch. We’ll make sure you are prepared for any situation that may arise. And, if you are working with the Mandrier Group, we’ll make sure that we have a lot of fun too!
