When To Say 'No' As An Event Manager

July 10, 2018

Event Company Singapore: As an event manager, you can’t say no to every opportunity that comes your way. But how do you know which asks are too much and which you might kick yourself for turning down? Here are some situations that warrant a resounding 'no':

Feeling burnt out

The weeks and days leading up to a big, important event can certainly be stressful with you working longer hours and taking on more responsibility. But overdoing it will only end up sabotaging your success. If you’re at the point where you’re losing sleep, not seeing your family, and living on protein bars, you have to just say no. If a vendor wants to call you after hours, for example, you can say, “No, I’m not available, but we can talk tomorrow.”

Your work is suffering greatly

You might thrive on the excitement of putting on an event and enjoying pleasing others, but if you have too much on your mind, you’ll easily miss a spelling error in a marketing email, miscalculate your budget or much worse. These could cost you your job, and these are signs that you need to say no so that you can focus on the tasks at hand.

Feeling the blues before an event

If you’ve done good planning prior to an event, everyone should have a to-do list and a protocol to follow. So, if you're feeling unwell or anxious please make it clear to your staff that you will not be available to deal with issues that do not directly pertain to the success of the event.

Immediately following the event

Although you might feel obligated to make yourself available once an event is over, give yourself permission to say no in the day or week right after. That way, you can recharge and get back into shape both physically and mentally before you jump into your next project.
