Planning and Events

In everything we aim to put public there should be a lot more planning, because not everyone is built to handle crisis management. Most of the budgets spent in this world could have been used for better causes, if there was planning before events instead of after dealing with the crisis. Think about BP oil spills, sweatshop collapses with Nike, Primark etc, Barclays interest fixing, the UK riots and the list goes on.

We host events globally and if the correct planning is not proposed, certain high profile events will not be granted to cities to boost economies. Recently it seems the aim is only to make money, not much emphasis in taking care of the public, looking after the environment or building the communities we come from or affect when doing our events. Planning as I said is imperative, ask yourself some questions; What does my event represent? Who am I targeting with my marketing? What am I offering apart from the sole purpose of the event? Will people be safe at my event and am I legally protecting my supporters and myself as an event host?

As said before crisis management is not for everyone, when there are serious injuries, death, cancellations and loss of licenses not everyone knows how to weather the storm and prepare for the calm. Communication is key, being calm, giving information and being able to deal with a crisis can sometimes build a brand that can easily be broken through crisis. A crisis can come from PR mistake, marketing, legal issues, incidents or accidents that occur during , after or before the  event goes ahead. Remember events are not just conferences, parties, concerts, olympics or world cups, the average person celebrates or respects marriage, birthdays, purchase of first home, death, change of seasons, job promotion, retirement, change of job etc.

The question I ask is what does it take out of someone to sit down, map out risks, identify them, fix the ones that can be sorted and take out insurance for the highly unlikely ones that will carry a massive impact if they were to occur. Also try to plan events to last with a bit of sustainability so therefore look on how it can affect local or external economy, social circles or communities and the environment. A great example could be a conference or show that rewards patrons, encourage them to recycle cups/paper/flyers they may not want that they receive at an event (environment), social & community being that profit proceeds may go to a community you live in or spent time in or create apprenticeship/internship for those educated in fields of working in event aspects (social) and the economic factors would be creating employment, paying people what is by law required, contracts and also creation of jobs at events like catering, drink specialists (bartenders), cab drivers (uber code discounts) and such.

Be innovative, creative and think for the future not just the now. Alot of these things some already do, alot can be improved. The key word though is PLANNING… if we can all plan better, we can host better events, encourage sponsorship and have sustainability within the event field but as a Jamaican saying goes ‘short cut draw blood’ and ‘the good you give is the thanks you get’… persistence is the way, consistency is encouraged and rewards will not come overnight. Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not! Talent can’t reach opportunity.

EPIK JONES TIME WON’T TELL

Epik Jones

Time Won’t tell

She said keep it real and just be honest

Stay humble, reserved and try to be modest

These walls may not talk but I see the writing on the wall

Far from Autumn but more than leaves fall

In the journey of life where the spirit may roam

Living in a time where thousands of miles away is where we call home

No trust or faith then surely we face defeat

Corns, cracks & blisters are the story of the feet

That walk searching for new ground, answers and solution

Wondering if there will be a metamorphosis or revolution

But seems that time has been paid off, gone into a shell

Because its become secretive, so not even time will tell

PROTOJE ANSWER TO YOUR NAME VIDEO

Answer To Your Name
is a time capsule to 1970s Brixton over a ska
influenced backdrop produced by Winta James and Lewis Planter.
This song for me transports you directly to the early 70’s
which was a crucial time in Jamaican history.
I challenge anyone not to dance when they hear this, it is infectious.
Answer To Your Name” is the fourth
official video from my third studio album, Ancient Future.
