QUESTION: When exactly did you start?
How was the first event you ever planned?
ANSWER: December 2015.
It was a Christmas celebration.
Ok, the first event, it wasn’t really planned I must confess, it was a family function,and I took charge of everything, I was so surprised at how it turned out, and since then I have been doing my thing. I also got so many commendations afterwards, it was really fulfilling
QUESTION: I understand that you are just starting within the university, how has the acceptance been for your business?
ANSWER: Wow, every business has it’s good times and otherwise.
The acceptance has been quite fair to some extent, you know we have to deal with the excos of faculties, halls, and department,some just don’t really pay attention to how well the event should turn out, all they want is that the event must hold, so they really don’t see the need to hire an event planner to spice the event
But to some extent, for a start, I think it’s been wonderful and great.

Photographer, caterers, people in charge of decorations and all others.

QUESTION: Okay. But…
I’m concerned about how you, let me say employed them. Was there a form of screening or you just reached out to people you already know?
How did it go?
ANSWER: There was screening apparently, we had to ensure they were fit for the job, so there was a screening in which the board members decided on which vendors are qualified to be a part of the team.
