Long time, event planning professional and entrepreneur Elaina M. Whitley presents 'Event Planning 101 Certificate Workshop', a 1-day interactive course to guide you through learning all about starting and running a successful event planning business as well as the many opportunities available within the industry. I created 'EP 101' in 2007 which has since been attended by hundreds of event professionals across the southeast region. In 2010, by popular demand via social media, I launched 'EP 101 On Tour', and took my expertise on the road to several cities around the country. My reason for creating this workshop was due to the thousands of dollars I spent attending event planning courses and still had nnooo clue how to start my business. I am very candid about discussing my hits and misses during my 15 years(plus) in the industry. Most event planning certificate courses do not teach students how to start a business. By hosting the workshop to a group of students at one time, I am able to share loads of information about all that I have learned, at a fraction of the cost that I paid. You will leave 'EP 101' with the knowledge on how start your business and how to plan fabulous and fun events for years to come. Please join us on Saturday, September 28th, 2013 in Atlanta to get started on your professional event planning journey. Topics include:What you need to do to get started in the industryEvent Planner educationEvent Planner incomeMarket your events & business to your target audienceCoordinate & manage successful events (Menu Planning, Registration, Budgets, Risk Mgmt, etc)How to form strategic partnerships with other event professionalsContracts and proposalsThe importance of why you must own a business and not just be an event plannerSimple ways of how to get repeat clientsAdding services to your business to create year-round revenueSeating is extremely limited. Registration will close at event capacity. Workshop is taught to a small group of 10 or less so that more hands-on training can be utilized throughout the class.
