Starting a new event management consultancy
Thinking about the type of entrepreneur that you are and identifying whether you have all the necessary attributes to be successful in the events industry is the exciting part. It is the time when innovation and energy abound, and the drive to achieve and excel is a driving force. Then things get more difficult, ie the part where you have to do the work and make it happen, instead of only thinking about it.
Now you need to look at the functions of the business, the financial requirements, and producing a business plan.
