Networking. Event Professionals Need a Rolodex!

What makes a successful event professional?  One very retro word: ROLODEX. Oh sure, you need talent, and office space and employees and whatnot, but if not for your business contacts, you couldn’t pull off an event. We do beautiful flowers, and plan seamless weddings but a bride can’t wear flowers down the aisle, and so far we have been unsuccessful pushing the workroom as a venue with our parrot Max as an officiant.  We trust our colleagues at Desert Bride to dress brides beautifully.  We send brides to the wonderful venues around town once we know what suits them best, and we’ve got officiants in our pocket like Rabbi Sally Olins of Temple Isaiah, and the team at Palm Springs Presbyterian Church.

In short, we get by with a little help from our friends!  We know how important networking is, and that’s why Gregory founded Wedding Warriors: Riverside County’s top networking group for wedding, special event, and service industry professionals.  The Warriors have monthly mixers in the area, and the first one is coming up on September 4th!2013.8.27 WW invite  Come join us and fill up that Rolodex, electronic or otherwise.

Be well, and love well.
