A person that is always active and looking for tasks to fulfil. Proactive event staff are never bored or doing nothing; they always find things to do and are one step ahead, creating or controlling a situation rather than responding to it after it has happened.
At events, there is always something unexpected. Not every information is available when needed, and event hosts and event hostesses often work under pressure. Facing this kind of challenge, patience helps event staff to deal with problems and create a good outcome.
To make sure an event is successful, everything needs to be under control and on time. An event requires coordination among different industries, professional skills or people. Therefore, if any event host or event hostess is not great at keeping tidy, organise and plan, they won’t last long in this sector.
The outstanding event staff is always aware of the latest technology available for events. This includes Virtual Reality tools, registration software, ticket scanners, event apps, contactless payments and Covid-19 technological measures.
