The way we work as event professionals is changing, and along with this change comes the need for new skills (and we’re not only talking about how to execute virtual and hybrid events).
So while technical event skills are essential, we’ve also uncovered a greater focus on areas of event planning that are becoming more and more part of the event job landscape today. Employers are looking for strategic individuals and c-suite relationship builders who effectively exhibit executive-level communication; can drive content and agenda development; and are business savvy. Flexibility and adaptability are highly-sought after skills, and being able to evolve with the changes in organizational priorities to achieve business outcomes and enthusiastically learning new competencies is paramount to being successful in the future of event work.
Hear from a panel of leaders from different segments of the events industry talk about how necessary these skills are today, how they coach their team members to upskill and reskill, and the skills critical to success in their organizations. Each leader has a different perspective to share relevant across any market segment and beneficial to event professionals at every level, employers, and team leaders. It’s a conversation you won’t want to miss!
