Thanks to all who joined me and my speakers over the last week for the Winning Workshop Secrets Teleseminar Training Series, where 4 marketing experts and I shared how to grow your business with live events.
Yesterday, we concluded the series with my presentation, How To Select And Work With Venues Without Losing Your Shirt. We had some technical difficulties, which reminded me of this quote:
“You can plan events, but if they go according to your plan they are not events. ”
A large part of event planning and managing is dealing with the inevitable crises that pop up during the event. Here is my bonus Winning Workshop Secret: Be sure you are not the one dealing with the crises that WILL happen at your own workshop or event. You need to be focused on your content and delivering your brilliance, so that your audience will want to tap into that some more. Anything that distracts from that will hurt your ability to deliver your content and convert your attendees into clients.
So what did I cover yesterday?
Here is a little sampling of How To Select And Work With Venues Without Losing Your Shirt
Different Types of Venues:
- Retreat Centers
- Convention Centers
- Cruise Ships
- Conference Centers
- Unique Venues (This is where the affordability comes in, but you have to do your homework)
Site Selection professionals and independent meeting planners (like myself) will be able to do all the research and negotiating with hotels for you without it costing you a cent. The only requirement? You have to have a workshop that requires accommodations for 10 rooms or more.
2 Mistakes that can make your workshop a loser instead of a winner
- Booking too many guest rooms. (The attrition and assessments will cost you a fortune!)
- Unexpected and hidden charges
