05: Five Tips for staying healthy during the busy Event Season [BONUS]
The levels of stress an event professional goes through are pretty incredible. CareerCast made event planning the 4th most stressful job of the year. 4th most stressful, right after Airline Pilots, Police officers and broadcasters. I mean, some days it feels like I’m landing the plane if know what I mean and some days I just ain't with how much stuff is going on. Newsflash: stress levels this high are not good for you!  While everybody in the industry (me included) goes through this especially during our busiest of seasons when we’re not just planning and producing one event, but many back to back events we all seem so focused on our work and tend to forget about the body that keeps everything going. And so, if this bonus episode will help you take one of the five tips shared and implement it as a healthy habit, my mission will be accomplished.

04: Best Practices for Sound, Video, Graphics and Lighting for Events
I come to you today to have a conversation about Best Practices for Sound, Video, Graphics and Lighting for Events because rarely would you plan an event these days that doesn't require the use of some form of AV and Lighting. I won’t dive too deep into Sound as I did during my last episode, but I will spend some extra time towards the end on Lighting and how used strategically, it influences how we think and feel, so stay tuned for some amazing insight and understanding on how we innately respond to lighting cues and how specific colours can create specific, immediate human responses!

03: The makings of good Sound for meetings and events - Event AV & Lighting: Demystified
In the spirit of understanding each other better, let’s start with the importance of good event sound in a venue for meetings and events, the equipment that you should have at a minimum and what are some of the common problems when it comes to sound. So here’s a true fact that many of you might disagree with: Hearing someone speaking at an event is more important than seeing them. Think about it for a moment. If you’re sitting in the audience at a sales meeting and there’s a problem with the slides, it may not be ideal, but the speaker can still deliver his presentation and hopefully carry their point across. If you’re attending a fundraising event and the benefit auctioneer can’t be heard, not only would that be very frustrating but they literally can’t do their job effectively and you just lost thousands of dollars in possible donations.  If the sound is garbled, not clear, distorted or not eq-ed properly bidders won’t bid. As simple as that. So, what does EQ-ing mean?  What’s up with watts? What is a watt? What is an SPL and why is it all this important? What is one rule of thumb when it comes to loudspeakers to audience ratio? What is a time alignment processor and why do you need one? What is the other one most important ingredient in the making of good sound for your events? What's the one tip to get presenters and speakers to show up for sound check?

02: Why is AV so important for events? - Event AV & Lighting: Demystified
 If this is your first time listening to this Podcast, my hope is that you will walk away after this episode with some relevant and helpful information regarding the audio-visual and lighting technology side of events to empower you and give you some inside tech knowledge that will make it easier and much smoother for you to plan your next event! My goal is to share with you insightful tips, strategies, tactics and  perspectives which will help you plan and produce successful events of all types and sizes, regardless of your AV budget. Weather your a beginner or a veteran, I want to provide you with enough relevant information that will take your events to the next level. You don’t need to be as fluent as your technician but knowing how things work will improve your ability to identify your AV needs, and especially manage your event’s AV budget! I’ve always been naturally a technologically curious person and because of that, tech feels very comfortable to me and while I want to hope it comes just as natural to many others, the reality is, most event planners are terrified of tech, don’t want to deal with anything technology and especially technology gone wrong. I get that and that’s where I hope to come into play. Tree-Fan Events was born out of the desire to create memorable events in partnership with my clients but also to educate our clients whenever the opportunity arises about the importance of working with professionals and what our role is as audiovisual providers in the fast growing events industry. Using quality AV equipment by highly skilled professionals is mostly always a recipe for success with the end result most favorable and memorable.  So in this episode, let’s talk AV and why is it so important for events? Studies have shown that the use of AV in classrooms is highly effective as it stimulates the class better which results in improved learning and higher grades for students. The same is true for all types of events that require audience connection and participation. So let's explore more!
