Judy Allen strikes again. The veteran event planner and president of Judy Allen Productions, Toronto, has published her third book on event planning in the past four years. Allen's latest, Event Planning Ethics and Etiquette (Wiley, June 2003) takes on a range of issues in which planners are called on to use their professional discretion, from fam trips to business favors.
Allen writes with the voice of experience and offers readers guidelines for establishing ethical policies in the office and on-site at events. The advice on etiquette might seem self-evident to experienced professionals, but it is nonetheless a good refresher and excellent reading for novices who need to know how to keep personal and professional boundaries from being crossed.
