Event description

Description

Are you thinking about organising events but don't know where to start?
Do you manage events at the moment but think you could do it better?

Raising money from events is a popular form of fundraising for many charities. Businesses often organise events to help show case their work. Whilst they can be great money makers for an organization, they can also be time consuming and expensive. The success of events depends on careful planning.

Who should attend?
This course is aimed at those with no or little experience of event planning and management. Whether you are a front line worker or in a supervisory or management role, this will provide an excellent introduction and overview into the main aspects of planning and running a successful event whether its to raise funds, build brand awareness or simply host a thank you party.

What will the course cover?
• planning your event; from idea to implementation
• how to market and promote your event
• customer experience; how to ensure your customers have a good experience at your event and return for future events
• budgeting and projecting a profit/loss; what costs do you need to take into account and how can you maximise fundraising potential
• health and safety; assessing risk, what do you need to think about
• trouble shooting; how do you react when things go wrong?

What previous attendes have said about the course

  • “I feel more confident now than earlier!” (Ellie, Homestart South Yorkshire)
