Managing an Event as a Project

Managing an Event as a Project

Project management seems to be overtaking the Executive Assistant’s world these days. With 89% of assistants organizing events as part of their role, whether or not your company calls it “project management” and deliberately applies its terminology and principles is irrelevant; the reality is that project management is now part of every assistant’s working life. In this workshop, we’ll look at the difference between routine work and a project. We’ll organize an event from start to finish using the techniques we have examined to determine ROI and manage the event/project from a budget. Walk away understanding how to:

  • Manage stakeholders and their expectations
  • Prepare for and plan an event or project
  • Manage your event in real time and sidestep common onsite problems
  • Assess the purpose of and ways you can evaluate a project or event
