What About Me? Beating Meeting Planner Burnout!

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Did you know that according to an American Psychological Association study, one-third of Americans feel they are living with extreme stress? You’ll be even more surprised to find out what U.S. News reports about the stress level of meeting planners!

Here’s what you need to know:
  • In your business as meeting planners, you give of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally, and you may sometimes lose YOUR sharpness, intensity, and /or effectiveness on the job and in your personal life. Many times this is what adults characterize as "burn-out." 
How do I know? As a hospitality professional working in this industry since the age of 15, I’ve experienced burnout many times! My story is most likely no different from yours ... running around to take care of my clients, sacrificing my own sleep and time for myself were the norm. But, when I found myself in the doctor’s office hearing the words, "the next time I see you will be at your funeral," it prompted me to change! I began researching the topic of stress and burnout and speaking to mental health professionals to learn how I can prevent this from happening.

It’s not easy and we all have to put in the work to change our situations. But, we’ll do it together! In this session, our focus will be on YOU as we walk through some proven ideas taken from the book, "The RevPAR Formula," on how to prevent burnout.

Join us, Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 9:45 a.m. for the session, "What About Me? Beating Meeting Planner Burnout!" We’ll develop a prevention plan so that you can get back to taking care of YOU, which will allow you to take care of your stakeholders with sharpness, intensity and effectiveness! NOW, that’s a definite "win-win" situation!
