The title of this episode is New Information and New Responsibilities Part 2. Learning from experience.
It should be obvious that “one doesn’t know” “what one doesn’t know.” The person is just not experienced in the area.
As an example If one is trying to produce an event with no prior experience, they will certainly learn a lot however it could happen that they will encounter things that they don’t know and improvising to fill in the blanks, pour choices could be made.
In this episode, Tobey recounts working with a couple on their Grand entrance who had some interesting ideas about “no introductions” and “no announcing”. Somehow they thought that they could just appear on the dance floor and that suddenly everyone would give them their attention.
This idea of “no announcing” could work nicely for an intimate event such as a dinner party of perhaps 30 to 60 guests. But certainly not for a large event of 100 or more.
Now Tobey is quite the diplomat and patiently illustrated for the couple the various ways that the grand entrance could be done in the way they had chosen.
I think this idea of “No Announcements” is probably born from having experienced bad announcing by a poorly chosen master of ceremonies who wasn’t working from a script.
And now please enjoy New Information and New Responsibilities Part 2. Learning from Experience.
Sincerely, Eric Zimmermann
