WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Independently perform event management including leading teams of peers to perform these functions.

Provide comprehensive technical support for audio-visual systems and computers up to when they need an expert repair.

Adapt rapidly to changing needs, constraints, and stress in a productive manner.
Identify when a problem needs an ordered process or more creative exploration, then design and implement solutions for either situation.
