Behind the Scenes of Chad Hudson Events

What’s the one mistake you see event planners make over and over again?

Going over budget without prior client approval. This upsets the client so much and ruins working relationships. Learn to monitor your budgets more closely.

Who was your mentor and what did they teach you about event planning and work ethics?

Courtney Saylor Rogge, my old boss at Warner Bros. Pictures. For seven years, she taught me so much about logistics, budgeting, management and work ethic. I remember we once worked until 4 a.m. on a large event, and then had to be back at the office at 7 a.m. We booked a hotel room a few blocks from the studio to get a couple of hours of sleep.

In what ways do you give back to your local community and your industry?

We started West Hollywood Supper Club 10 years ago. It’s a revolving dinner that moves around each month among local restaurants, with a percentage of the meal and drinks going to a local charity organization. We also volunteer and do pro bono and discounted work for deserving causes.

Describe a typical day off for Chad Hudson.

I enjoy a nice dinner or movie, drinks with friends, maybe a massage. But mainly I like to rest!
