A little Jekyll and a little Hyde: What to do when your clients get crazy

We have all been there.  We start planning an event with Dr. Jekyll only to have Mr. Hyde show up halfway through the process.  How do you speak logically to clients that become illogical?  How do you navigate the process between a client’s SPAM budget and tartare taste?  When events divide families or clients are left in tears how do you respond?

In this fun and interactive session, nationally known speaker Jamie Quickert will identify how to see crazy coming and what to do when it arrives including managing expectations, setting boundaries, managing conflict and what to do when it hits the fan…

High Tea: Do’s and Don’ts...

  • Pinkies up is actually considered ill-mannered.
  • Do not blow on the tea to cool it off.
  • Take small, dainty sips; do not gulp and never make a sound when taking a sip.
  • The tea cup goes in the right hand.
  • Never cradle the cup with your hands. Use the handle only; that is what it is for.
  • If standing, the saucer is held in the left hand.
  • In some social circles, especially Asian cultures, you place your hand on the bottom of the tea cup so the bottom is not seen.
  • Never make noise when you are stirring with your spoon.
  • Never tap the spoon against your tea cup.
  • Gently place the spoon to right side of the saucer without making a noise.
  • Never place the spoon on the table.
  • Never place the spoon in your mouth.
