Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.
— Dwight D. Eisenhower

Eisenhower said this in regard to planning for an emergency.  He continued, "The very definition of emergency is that it is unexpected, therefore it is not going to happen the way you are planning." In other words...

Expect the Unexpected! 

Roll with the punches, prepare for unforseen situations, and focus on solutions. The programs and services below will help you do just that.

Event Planning Essentials - Online Course

This is an online course on the basics of event planning for small events.

We'll be covering:

  • 5 common mistakes and how to avoid them
  • creating your dream team
  • budgeting for profitable events
  • researching the perfect location
  • venue selection and contract negotiations
  • accommodations and attrition
  • food and beverage menu planning
  • a/v specifications
  • outlining the schedule/framework/flow for your event
  • activities, teambuilding, gifts (and other fun goodies!)
  • and the #1 thing you MUST HAVE before you do your first event!

You'll get access to all of my frequently used forms, spreadsheets, best practices and favorite app recommendations (most are free!) as well as a weekly Q&A session to hold you accountable and help you along the way.

This is NOT for someone who wants to do an event for more than 50 people. This is NOT for someone who wants somebody else to do all the work for them. This is NOT for someone who is just looking to get "butts in seats". This is NOT for someone who does not take responsibility for their own success - and their event's success.

This course is for the speaker who is just starting out, someone who is ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work to provide extraordinary experiences for their clients and make an impact with their message.

If you are planning one of your first events and need a blueprint to turn your ideas into actions, this is it!  Let me help you create an extraordinary event!
