The main thing that I hope to learn at Blues and Brews this year is how to deal with conflict. This is a skill that I don’t really have and I am always terrified when it comes conflict. I feel that this is something that arises in everyone’s life and it is something that everyone has to face. During Oktoberfest last year there were certain situations that came up where I didn’t know what to do in order to fix the problem. It was hard for me think on the spot because I didn’t want to do anything that would look bad on Peak Events. Also, it was hard because I didn’t know what situations would be ok to give refunds in or discounts. By doing events I feel that it helps to bring me out of my shell and it teaches me new skills that I wouldn’t have before. Another aspect that I hope to learn about is more of the behind the scenes aspect before the event even starts. I look forward to seeing all of the different aspects that are all separate eventually be able to come together to create an event. My favorite part about doing events is seeing nothing become something and how happy that makes people. I look forward to being a part of Blues & Brews again and being able to learn and work a new aspect of this event.
