I have had the opportunity to not only plan a variety of special events but also to produce them. Everything from hiring the performers, i.e., vendors, musicians, speakers, catering, etc., to working with volunteers and hired workers and of course securing stages and parking.
I know how to set up an event time-line of what and when things need to be done such as reserving space in parks, schools and public buildings. Included in this was designing advertising posters and flyers and writing news releases to capture my audience through the media.
I have even been known to climb scaffolding to set up the lights and stages.
