By the time the session is over, you will be able to identify basic elements in the planning process; employ effective planning strategies; overcome problems; and plan successful events.
Why “Event Planning Basics” Matters:
Here’s what successful event planners would tell you:
- “Without a solid plan, your event might not turn out as you hoped.”
- “Staging an event involves so many activities and they must all come together perfectly for a successful event.”
- “When you’re planning an event, you’re under the gun. There isn’t much room or time for mistakes, so you have to get it all right the first time.”
- “The reputation and success of your organization depend on positive event outcomes. So do your own reputation and career success.”
- All your events can turn out successfully if you plan well.
- Effective planning takes into account all the elements that must come together to produce an event.
- A strong team can help you manage issues and overcome problems.
- Conducting a self-evaluation after each event can help improve performance and create more successful events.
