The holding of events is a constant in all facets of human endeavour. In any organizational framework, events are commonplace, whether in business or entrepreneurship. Even in general social dynamics, events are integral. Planning and managing events is not a stroll in the park. Personally, I planned and managed my first event when I was 18 years of age. I quickly learnt that event management could be tasking. That is why it is not surprising to see people hiring events management service providers. Today we get to discuss a Zimbabwean events management company worth considering, Five Star Events (F.S.E).
