Each component of planning an event is broken down from the highlights in a Husky LEAD workshop. Link to PowerPoint.
- Idea, Title & Goals
Start from the beginning, but overall, make sure the purpose for the event is important enough to merit the time and expense needed to properly stage, publicize and evaluate the event.
Planning backwards and looking at the calendar to best find a date for your event. Remember scheduling etiquette.
What are your expenditures? What is your projected vs. actual spending.
- Marketing & Promotions
Table tents, posters and Facebook!
Things to consider and all the reservations you may need to make.
- Risk & Emergencies
Know the importance of planning, prevention and response. Know emergency contact information and ways to reduce your risk.
- The Program
The event is here – now what? Troubleshoot for all the things that may not go right!
- Wrap Up
Tying up all the loose strings.
