How To Become a Corporate Event Planner
So you want to host a live event, but you’re super freaked out about the money part of it? How do I make sure I’m not forgetting to budget for anything? How can I make sure I don’t forget about taxes and fees? How do I figure out my “break even” number of tickets?
What does that mean for you as a small business who is thinking about hosting their first high-end retreat or workshop for your audience? Why is it even important to host an event as a small business?
If I can bust a myth right now about speaking at conferences, many, many industry conferences don't pay speakers (even at a very high level. Like, the highest level.). That's not to say that you SHOULDN'T pay your speakers, but that is to say that often, you as the conference organizer are responsible for connecting the right people with the right opportunities. #speakingtips #conferencespeaker
The best part of working with Lauren was that she took the fear and mystery out of the whole event process. She has everything broken down so beautifully and I’m now inspired to do even bigger things in the future. She always knows exactly the right questions to ask to make sure everything comes out with the outmost clarity. Lauren is a clarity master.
