SENTRY
CONFERENCE SERVICE CODES

Corporate Conference Coordination requires a particular set of skills. Many of these develop naturally while others are acquired through years of experience. A defined set of company cornerstones within Sentry’s Premium Conference Platform are indicated below. Sentry’s standards of these important qualities are found within its superior employees and talents.


PASSION FOR PLANNING 

Being truly passionate about conference planning and event coordination is a highly valuable quality of a Sentry Manager, Coordinator and Receptionist. Sentry talent exudes energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to one’s work, planning, and goal setting and achievement.


ATTENTION TO DETAIL 

Running meetings and events smoothly requires a keen attention to detail. Being involved in every stage of planning, including smaller tasks such as arranging, changing seating plans or drafting contingency locations and emails, are key components to staying focused within your planning preparations and ensuring a successful event.


RELATIONSHIP MANAGERS 

At their core, events and conferences are about bringing like-minded people together. This collaborative environment should reflect your own interpersonal skills while keeping an open dialogue and listening to your Sentry team and clients. Remember our common message - Sentry offers the highest level of Corporate Conference Coordination.


CONFERENCE CONTINGENCY 

Sentry Conference Coordinators are professionals and are prepared to react to any eventuality or potential error. This not only requires preemptive measures to any possible planning issue, but also creates a need to react, adapt and adjust in the event one occurs.


ORGANIZATION & TIME MANAGEMENT

Organization and effective time management are the cornerstones of a Sentry Conference Coordinator. Keeping your colleagues informed, meeting deadlines, and ensuring vital documents and information are well-organized will create an efficient and successful event every time.


TECHNOLOGY AFFINITY 

Audio Visual Solutions were previously used as a support tool within the meetings industry. In Sentry’s world today “tech knowledge”, familiarity, and the proper use of this language is a vital part of our meetings and events. Within the industry, Conference Coordinators are increasingly shifting to event management software in lieu of spreadsheets due to its added convenience and features.

 

ADAPTABILITY & IMAGINATION 

Adaptability and imagination in planning and coordinating events can sometimes prove difficult, especially if you’re restricted by client constraints or guidelines. This may not leave room for creativity and innovation; however, no two events are the same. If you’re limited by your client’s requirements, you need to adapt and be creative in order to make the most of your conference coordinating skill set and implement a meeting and event that will stand out.


LEADERSHIP 

The ability to work well within our entire team is an essential skill for all Sentry roles. However, becoming a successful Sentry Manager, Coordinator, Receptionist, or Set-Up Associate is defined by your leadership and team building skills. Everyone can learn to motivate or organize a team but ultimately, it will depend on your passion for meeting and event planning.
