Event management business is rather a new line in many countries of the world. People often ask very strange questions about the things which they are not aware of. Sometimes, as an event planner, these questions will come o you as a shock and sometimes they will get you in a delightful mood. Nonetheless, you need to be ready for any kind of question.
Most of the time, people will ask you if you are a party planner. For them, event management is only a party planning gig. While party planning is also an important aspect of event management, you can tell them that event management is much bigger than just party planning. If your audience is a good listener, you can inform him about how big the party planning industry has now gotten in itself.
Another question for which you must be always mentally ready is that people will ask you what you actually do. They are sometimes just aware of the name that there exists a business which is called event management, but they are not well-aware of what their duties and responsibilities, or in easy words, job descriptions are. So you should keep an easy explanation for such questions in your mind and do not get offended if you get the same question asked in an arrogant way because a good event manager is always nice to people.
One other question that will meet you over and over again from the pessimists is that why did you need to get a degree for a business that is just management. You need to know that these are the people who will always discourage you and will never be there to appreciate when you succeed and improve. You should respond to them in the nicest way and explain to them that there are many delicacies in running any business which have been explained to you while you were graduating and that you are using those techniques in your business in order to improve and move up the ladder.
There will be many other questions which will be asked from you and you need to be prepared to face them. Some of the questions might not need to be answered just to keep the identity of your clients at bay. So you better be prepared in full to face such situations.
