Meeting planning—or as defined by studies as “event coordinator”—has been listed as one of the most high-stress professions. Other jobs in hospitality must suffer a similar level of stress and burnout, such as hotel and venue sales, with constant revenue goals and wrangling contracts, plus evenings entertaining clients; and convention services, because there are too few people working in these positions, which take on the stress of facilitating what salespeople sell. Burnout results in not just the need for time off. It results in a dearth of new ideas because we can’t see, well, the trees for the forest! With that comes meetings that look and feel way too alike. There IS an alternative!
