Your Event Career

The Most Successful Event Planning Students Share These 9 Traits (Part Two)

In part two of her blog series focused on how to succeed in QC Event School’s courses, QC tutor Heather Vickery shares her do’s and don’ts, and how to rise to the top in 2018! Heather is the Owner and Event Director of Greatest Expectations Special Events and Weddings, one of Chicago’s most celebrated event planning and design firms.

Here is what I ask…
I always ask my students to treat me and the assignments as if we are paying customers. What I mean by that is to put as much effort and love into the coursework as you would client work. Treat it like there is a paycheck at the end.

Why does this matter? Because I firmly believe that how we do anything is how we do everything and if you are going to rush through the coursework and not take the time to do it right, I have little confidence that you will be an excellent event and wedding planner.

Here are some do’s and don’ts specific to your QC classes:

It is a brand new year and now is the perfect time to really kick things into high gear. If you take everything I said above to heart and truly push yourself with your coursework, it will set you up for a successful career in events and weddings.

I wish you much luck in the coming year and look forward to helping you learn and grow as a planner.
