I am currently floating on cloud 9 after my 5th Annual Stilettos and Strategies Women’s Conference this weekend! While it was not without mishaps and unpredictable occurrences, it was successful because the objective was met, the tickets sold out, the feedback was positive, and the budget was in the black. Now, this may not mean much to you, but to me it is everything.
I know that many think that because I am an event planner, I have all the answers and never experience hiccups. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, the hardest thing for an event planner to do is plan their own event. Some of it is because we are not our clients and we are not working with the same level of budget that our high ends clients entrust to us.
W also e don’t give ourselves the same time and energy that we give to our paying clients. We give them so much time that we rush our tasks because we have limited hours to apply the same level of focus to our project when we have 9 other irons in the fire that have the power to make our break our reputation and livelihood. But, I still managed to pull off an amazing event that truly touched and transformed the hearts of all who attended. So, I want to share my secrets to success to anyone that may have had challenges getting the attendance they desired and the event flow down to science.
Having a successful in-person event requires a little more work than a webinar, meeting, happy hour, or pop up mixer, but they are much more meaningful and fun. Sure, they take a bit of planning, but if you follow these tips you’ll be well on your way to a sold out function.
Good planning and plenty of forethought will only help you to reach your event related goals. More importantly, it will show your guests how much you value you them and respect their time shared with you. If planning events makes you break out in a cold sweat, head on over to my company Esyntial Elements at esyntialelements.com (@esyntialelements) and schedule a FREE consultation.
