There is not a day that goes by that an event of some sort is not scheduled somewhere. They come in all shapes and sizes, for all purposes. Meetings and events have become such an important and integral part of our lives and culture that people make a career out of planning them. Every event offers its own unique challenges and there are many ways of navigating these challenges, with varying degrees of success. Tales is a compilation of event war stories (every hilarious, frustrating, exciting detail).
Tales provides real world events in an academic framework. These are a ‘jumping off’ point for discussion, there is no ‘right’ answer, or even one answer, usually there are many.
