Have you ever been to an event where the host was running around frantically trying to put everyone at ease?
When said in the same sentence, it sounds unlikely that a frantic host could calm anyone, yet, we see it frequently. Events are a massive undertaking. There’s always something that doesn’t go according to plan. Always something that needs to be adjusted at the last second.

Rather than running around like crazy on the night of your event, how might you create systems that allow you to be fully present?
