Over a certain weekend in July, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you can find Event 360’s Jason Mahakian running in Northern Michigan. After all, for the past 10 consecutive years, he’s been part of a team participating in the Great Lakes Relay. According to Jason, it’s an event that is executed flawlessly where “the race directors do a great job of sending out all of the necessary information needed to complete the event stress-free. Through relentless planning and strong attention to detail, the event staff is able to provide an incredible experience for all participants and keep everyone coming back year after year.”  Wow! Anyone else ready to join Jason for 2015?!

Barking at Cats

Author: Joann Collins on 29 July 2014 | 0 Comments

When I was in college, a children’s literature professor taught me a phrase that has stuck with me whenever I’m trying to write. She said, “You don’t bark at a cat.” What she meant was: Keep your audience in mind when you’re writing. In the context of the course I was taking, she meant that we should write the way a child wants to read.

Do you remember the last time you staffed an event? If the answer comes to you quickly- congratulations (and I hope you’ve caught up on some rest and are no longer sore)! If you can’t remember, or the answer is no, then this blog post is for you.

In May, I staffed my first event in I don’t know how long. After working in a position “behind the scenes” for several years, being on event wasn’t part of my job responsibilities. Sure, I had been there as a participant and spectator. I even had a few meetings that took place off site so I could pop in on a nearby event. But the last time that I was in a true staff capacity, having a specific role to execute, and being there from beginning to end… Yeah, it had been awhile.
