Some scenarios -- e.g., the bus driver
who, en route, calls to get directions -- seem funny to planners
only in hindsight.
Jennifer Collins, president and owner
of The Event Planning Group in Washington, D.C. (www.epgevents.com),
thinks it’s healthy to laugh at, and learn from, these experiences.
She’s spun her planning tribulations into a booklet of cartoons,
“The Lighter Side of Meetings.” She’s also designing related
spin-offs (mugs, mouse pads, 2009 calendars, etc.) as well as a
niche sequel on government meetings.
