"Seas Every Opportunity"! "Adapt to Changing Tides"!
Does that sound like the constantly changing state of the wedding industry? For professional wedding planners, we face a challenging, stressful career that has been ranked #5 in jobs that are the most stressful by CareerCast.com. Through it all, we're the "firefighters" of wedding vendors, mediators, problem solvers and visionaries.
We begin our day at 8 am with Registration and Continental Breakfast and start with an amazing highly rated awards from the Knot and Wedding Wire, wedding planner Emily Petersen of Emily Weddings Inc. Our Keynote speaker follows and it's the fascinating business coach, author and millennial Marcia Bennett. The afternoon session will be an interactive session that we're inviting Brides to participate with us, facilitated by Connie Amos-Parsons, Accredited Wedding Planner and owner of At Your Service Events Planner, and ABC VA State Manager. The second half of the afternoon workshop will be engaging our wedding planners with their most challenging wedding scenarios and questions and how they handled it. We'll hear the different dilemmas and decide the best way to handle our challenges.
This workshop promises to be informative, thought provoking and problem solving. We will touch on how to balance work, stress and family and come up with ways to help your business grow and be successful.
