Gong Xi Fa Cai!
The year of the Earth Pig starts now. Another Lunar Calendar begins, and so we will be filled with all the Chinese New Year festivities, from Dragon and Lion Dances up to the customary tradition of eating glutinous rice cake (tikoy).
For some businesses – that includes events professionals – that includes re-arranging things to let the energy (qi) flow through them (feng shui). Event professionals are also involved in this.
Speaking of feng shui and the Chinese zodiac, let’s discuss the traits of those who are born in the Year of the Pig and what valuable traits we can learn from them:
- Optimists – Men born in the year of the Pig are said to be optimistic and gentle. Event Management pros, as organizers, do their best to deliver a smooth event experience, and the motivation to do so gives them optimism.
- Social – Events are social, and Event Management pros know better in this field.
- Continuous Learners – As with any profession, Event Management pros know that their knowledge is not enough, and they shall seek to be better by learning so they can contribute not only to the business they’re into, but also to themselves.
- Quiet – Events Management, while being a very active industry, is not that quite noisy. Sure, there are some events that call our attention, but Event Management pros know that their fellows are working at the sidelines to make things go smooth.
- Excitement – While they work hard in silence, Event Management pros, being the ones who provide the “experience” side of things, are as excited as the ones who will be receiving it.
- Detail-oriented – Every event needs its own details. Not one event is identical, as it has something different to offer every time. It may not be the experience you’re looking for inside, but it might be the fact that you gained new memories to keep, or friends to meet. Regardless of this, Event Management pros meticulously prepare it for you.
- Calm and collected – Event Organizers are there to organize things and troubleshoot concerns related to the event. For this reason, they have to keep their cool, stay calm and collected because there will be a time that they can relax.
