Planning, Designing, and Executing Meetings and Events (W2)

Just as an RFP (request for proposal) or RFQ (request for quote) and resulting hotel or vendor contract set the foundation for a good business relationship and meeting or event, this workshop provides the groundwork for constructing an event from goal setting to execution, with emphasis on areas – contracts and contingency planning – that help minimize risk.

Prepare to develop a greater understanding of industry contract terminology and learn how to develop and stay on track with goals and objectives that tie into a company’s or organization’s and an event’s mission. Learn how to create audience-centric (focused on your meeting’s demographic and best learning practices) and universal meeting formats and set-ups, while ensuring that all attendees can easily participate.

Through best practices examples and exercises, we’ll explore how to protect your people, property, and finances and protect your personal reputation and that of your employer. Throughout the session, adult learning enhancements will be used to keep you engaged, energized and eager to improve your own meetings.

In this interactive workshop, you will:
• Explore best core meeting planning practices;
• Enhance your understanding of industry terminology for better communications;
• Discern how to make meetings and events more audience-centric; and
• Analyze and prepare to manage the human and financial risk factors of planning and executing meetings.
