People make mistakes.
Nobody, and nothing, is perfect.
Take a look back at one of my old posts for a classic “could have done it better” story – https://mondessinnumero1.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/a-lesson-learned-that-disaster-story/, but at the end of the day, the lesson that had to be learnt was making sure that I was able to recognize certain signs, and ensure that history would not repeat itself.
Life is a work in progress.
When it comes to events, we spend so much time concentrating on every detail, working with our clients and aiming to exceed every expectation they have in order to make sure that their events are truly spectacular – that sometimes, and in the event of an unforessen and / or a genuine mistake that arises, the harshness with which we question our abilities is a little unfair. Next to not making that mistake again, is how we dealt with it when we did. The combination of complete event preparation, and back up – together with the correct information sharing and response techniques in the event of a challenge – will hopefully allow for you to take an honest step back, assess what did go wrong, and ask “how I would do it better” next time around.
I would love to hear some “this is what I learnt” stories from you – drop me a line.
