Back by popular demand (this class was, after all, our #1 top rated session from last year)! How many times have you thought you should be doing more to protect yourself and your business—but then worry about clients not liking it or staff getting upset? This session will be a roller coaster ride through the trials of the live event industry when things don't go exactly as planned. Our industry is ripe for being taken advantage of with less than stellar practices in the way we protect ourselves from staff, clients, and everyone in between. We are also negligent as we often don't feel the need for (or can't justify the expense of) ensuring we are proactive in delivering binding agreements. This session will delve deep, in an open and honest way, showing industry case studies, examples, and remedies to ensure YOU know how to handle any issues that may come your way.
