"Each event is like a film in that it has a life in development, production and post-production or recap," said Cohen adding, "Producing events require patience, give and take, trouble-shooting, and a need to stay flexible with your team and talent to make the event shine, and most importantly, to keep the spotlight on the purpose of the event."
