Question:
I have an interest to join the Ticketing Committee, but I am quite shy to interact with strangers, what should I do?
Answer:
We understand that interacting/approaching people for ticket sales sounds really daunting, but don't worry about it! The committee doesn't require you to solely sell tickets face to face. We do a lot of marketing activities (Social Media Marketing, Facebook Advertising, etc.) to help with our ticket sales. Being super charismatic is not a requirement to join MnT, it's just a bonus. However, through this committee, you might be able to build more confidence as there will be informal presentations within the committee, so we believe this it is a great place to start if you want to grow in that area!
