Meeting Planners are required to work a lot of hours. The job forces us to do it all. Meeting planners produce meetings and events aimed at bringing people together for the same objectives and goals. Handling each and every meeting detail from start to finish. And the logistics and deadlines they are a plenty. Making travel definitely a part of the job. When we’re not chained to our desks feverishly working to get the details done. We tend to have to travel for site inspections, planning appointments and organizational meetings.
Travel used to be one of my most favorite parts of the job. Learning new things in new places. I love, love, love it.
All By Myself – Meeting Planners, Sound Familiar?
We all use our unexpected time at the airport differently. Don’t judge. I’m usually on the hunt for food, trashy magazines or obsessively sending tweets. But Richard Dunn outdid us all. Once he decided to swap his night flight for a morning one in exchange for travel vouchers. And with time not on his side, he decided to stay at the Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport and make a humorous music video. Using Celine Dion’s “All by Myself”, an iPhone, a wheelchair and luggage he made a most creative and enjoyable video.
Lucky Richard, one of the millions and millions of viewers of his amazing viral video was Miss Dion herself. She also posted a video letting Richard know how much she enjoyed his video and inviting him to see her show. “Next time you’re stuck all by yourself at the Las Vegas airport for hours and hours, please be my guest at my show,” Miss Dion said. “And by the way Richard, you’re more than welcome to use my bathroom”.
