The power of a Corporate Events Manager comes in the form of control. These events—trainings, seminars, meetings, parties—are important to someone. Often, they are very important to a lot of people. And that's where the power comes in: You will be in control of whether these events are smashing successes or resounding duds.
You will have the power to determine what the head of Company A eats for dinner. You control the decorations for the annual Holiday party (boycott tinsel!) for Company B. The power is in your hands whether Company C's Human Resources training serves cheese or fruit Danishes—or a variety pack. Revel in that power!
