I thought everything was under control, but not 10 hours before the day, our guest speakers cancelled their performance. I was in shock to hear that, because we had no back up plan at all! I was crying, since I didn't know what to do, but crying won't solve a thing. That's why I made some phone calls to some of the guest speakers, I basically told them what the problem was and asked for a win-win solution. Turns out that there was some miscommunication and you know what? We finally made the guest speakers to come to our event!
What I'm trying to say is, communicate and tell about how you feel and what you think. Because when you communicate clearly, you surely will get a clear result as well. Just like Jarod Kintz says: 'The mouth is made for communication'. Yes, communicate and listen clearly.
