How to Take Your Event from IDEA to LAUNCH

Events are a wonderful way to bring people together, share, collaborate and create memories – but how do we ensure we bring these elements to life in our own events?

This workshop will take you through a 15 step process that will help you bring your idea together, consider its purpose, audience and objectives, and work through the critical decisions that form the event plan.

During the event you will:

  • Learn the key steps to effective event coordination
  • Explore how to bring crticial decision making into the event plan
  • Take home a comprehensive workbook to apply these learnings to your event

This is a Learning Table workshop. Light Refreshments provided from 9:00AM – 9:30AM, with the workshop commencing at 9:30AM.
