"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."

As an Event Coordinator, I’m involved with every facet of the event process, from creation to implementation and all the details in-between. Events are all about bringing people together to create a shared experience that is both informative and fun; the goal being to make sure the attendees leave the event with new connections, valuable information, and a smile on their face.
My favourite part of being an Event Coordinator is seeing the event come together and watching the attendees enjoy themselves. There’s a moment when you realize that your hundreds of to-do lists, emails, phone calls, meetings and excel spreadsheets have all united to create a fantastic, larger-than-life event, and it’s pretty exciting. It is a great feeling when an attendee comes over to tell you that they had a fantastic time –it makes all the late nights and last-minute problem solving totally worth it.
