As event professionals, we’re bound to the duty of care. In case you’re not fully aware of what this means, the Legal Dictionary defines it as the “responsibility of a person or organization to take all reasonable measures necessary to prevent activities that could result in harm to other individuals and/or their property”. And if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. Because planners are responsible for the safety of their attendees. Whether that applies to physical or emotional harm, we have a lot of responsibility in our hands. To a certain extent, we actually hold peoples’ lives in our hands.

But how much thought is truly put into this? To what extents do planners go to ensure the safety and well-being of their attendees? And what consequences can come out of neglecting our duty of care? Well, that’s exactly what the Brew Crew will be discussing this week! Our amazing hosts Thuy Diep, Dustin Westling, and Nick Borelli are in the house. And they are joined by a very special guest, Kevin White. The four of them will talk about the implications of the duty of care in the events industry. What we should do to ensure it, why, and how sour things can get if we don’t. So grab your favorite drink and press play – it’s time for another episode of Event Brew!
