Today’s Tip – Respect; Proper etiquette during an event –
Being on an event is a privilege. Another company or person, allowed you to be placed on a show to help support something. Be it, a club, a name, or a charity. It could be anything. Yet, what is the etiquette of being on that show? Respect. You are not performing on there because you are the all mighty. You’re a performer among many other performers. The show is more important than those involved on stage. Remember networking is about others.
So is how you are remembered. Respect the host, the person(s) who put the show together and gave you a chance. Know your set time, what happens if you are going down in a big fire, and if the host flashes you. It’s not about how much time you get, but what you do with that time. Take care of yourself by listening and responding to others. When you are flashed by the light to leave, then give the host respect enough by getting off the stage.
Professionalism is seen by all; the audience, other performers, and even the owners of the club/venue are watching. There is a chance your outburst could make it harder for you to be a part of something in the future. Think about what you want from people when you run a show. What you want from people when you are in control. The business of success is about respecting yourself and others. The proper etiquette during an event is always; Behave within the system.
