The Secret Life of a Professional Event Planner

February 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$65 – $95

A seminar for nonprofit chief executives, fund development and communications staff.

Working in any profession, day in and day out, gives you greater insight and access to invaluable resources…it’s no different for professional event planners. We learn from our peers, from the industry we study, and even from the mistakes we have made (or see made) at events. We teach ourselves to do everything better, faster, easier… or we won’t thrive, much less survive, the next week full of events.

Many of the tools we use are available to you – the Executive Director, Development Director, In-House Event Planner, Volunteer Board Member – if only you knew they existed and how to find them. Come get a behind the scenes glimpse at a handful of these ‘not-so-secret’ event planning secrets. Walk away with a few new tips and some tools and tricks to benefit your next event!

Presented by:
