Events Masterclass Series: Technical Assessment for Producers
This session is a 2 hour training video on technical assessment for Producers in the Asia and Middle East region.
When we don’t have a technical expert on the team, the Producers need to take up the slack.
How do we know enough to know when we need to know more?
Whether getting the AV and Lighting quotes, understanding set production challenges, assessing health and safety risks, or considering other technical related issues for the event, Producers often shoulder the weight of making sure it is all cost efficient, suitable for the show, will look good and will be safe – whether there’s a TD on the team or not.
You don’t need to know everything; just know enough to know when you need to ask for more information. Join Dawn Dennis to discuss this from a producer’s perspective.
Originally from Las Vegas, Dawn has nearly 30 years of experience in the events and entertainment industry, with the last 12 years spent working throughout China, SE Asia, the Middle East and the UK. In roles from project management to event producing, Dawn’s skills span account management, VIP management, show and entertainment logistics and technical and production management.
Whether as a producer or technician on countless concerts, exhibitions and corporate shows, Dawn has worked across the major venues of Las Vegas and in many Asian cities. Dawn has worked on the Olympics, with one of the top sponsors, on casino openings in Macau, citywide lighting festivals, production launches, conferences and many more.
As the region and industry develops, and now responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dawn is now splitting her focus between event production, event education and future work strategies. She is building programs to improve event management skills as well as helping broaden minds to think about the psychology of event management, and also working to improve event sustainability and risk assessment by event organisers.
