Students: 1112, Price:  Paid

You have a great idea for an event or festival. But where do you start? What does it actually mean to organise an event for 300 people? Let alone 3,000 people. When I worked as a university lecturer I asked my students to organise a community festival. The ideas were there. The creativity, the performers, the enthusiasm...it was all there. But they still had to talk to the permit and license officer. What do they expect to see from an event planner? Welcome to the workshop Event Planning. 

If you want to organise an event or festival you need to submit an Event Management Plan to your license or permit officer. I will teach you what you need to include in your plan.

This 13+ hour workshop is divided in 13 sections in which you will learn everything you need to include in your Event Plan. 

In this workshop you will learn about: 

  • Planning your event 
  • Researching your audience 
  • Permits, licenses & festival insurances
  • Health & Safety aspects at events
  • Event marketing and sponsorship
  • Event production 
  • Contract & procurement
  • Site survey and site design 

The workshop is a combination of tutorialspresentationsexercises and interviews with event and festival professionals. Interviews with event and festival professionals will provide you with fantastic insight into an amazing industry! 

What other students say about this workshop

"The course is filled with great details and practical examples from real world. The interviews and the case study are really helpful. Overall, the course has an excellent structure and useful content." Anna Santiago

"I am an events coordinator and wedding planner. I found this course to be invaluable for organizing and enhancing my already successful businesses. It started out somewhat slow, but quickly moved on to relevant and timely instruction on what needs to be done, how to do it and how to work smarter, not harder. I absolutely loved this course and learned much new information from the instructor on topics I really had never thought about before. Thank you!" Susan Konopik

I have interviewed industry experts

  • Lightning in a Bottle Festival
  • Shambhala Music Festival
  • Stern Grove Music Festival
  • The Drugs Policy Alliance
  • Gentlemen of the Road Festival
  • Klean Kanteen
  • RFID technology company

Reading material such as the Event Safety Guide, the Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds and more are incorporated into the curriculum.

The benefits of this workshop for you

At the end of the workshop you will understand what is expected of you in order to plan and produce a successful event or festival. You will be able to write an comprehensive Event Management Plan that complies with the rules and regulations set by your local authorities.

This workshop is for you if you are passionate about events and festivals, if you keep dreaming about organizing your own event, and for (aspiring) event producers!

FAQ

1. Can I contact you if I have a question about the course content?

A. Absolutely! That's what a tutor is for. You can contact me via Jarno@eventtutor.com. My aim is to respond to your email as quick as possible.

2. Is this event planning workshop only useful if I want to plan a festival?

A. It is useful if you want to plan any type of event. The workshop covers a wide variety of subjects and will benefit any event planner. Truth be told though that I will teach you how to write an Event Management Plan. When you plan a wedding you most likely do not need to submit an event management plan to a license officer. If your event requires permits or licenses, than this workshop is for you!

3. I've seen other online courses that are more expensive. Why is this course so cheap?

A. I want to make sure the course is accessible to those who dream about organising their first event. I want to teach them what event planning entails. I do not want my students to be out of pocket.

Recent Review:

Patrick N. says "Great course to help anyone in the event planning industry.  I've planned events for years but always just kind of winged it, if we made money great.  Now I see you can actually run it like a business and track your incoming and outgoing money.  Far more professional, and will only help me plan nothing but successful events going forward!"

Why You Should Take This Course With Me:

Planning an event is a very large task, and often the financial side is ignored or not clearly understood.  To make a financial success of your events going forward, spend time up front creating a budget where you estimate your revenues and expenses by category.  Further, using your actual results post-event, you can see how good of a job you did planning, where you made money, saved money, or overspent.  At the end, you'll have a bottom line profit amount, attractive graphs and charts, and knowledge to apply to your next event. 

As well, the template we build in the course is available for download at the end of the course!

What We Learn In The Course:

  • Learn the basics of Microsoft Excel - no experience required to take the course

  • Create a budgeting, revenue and expense tracking template in Excel

  • Establish a break even revenue amount for your event

  • Categorize revenues and expenses

  • Create simple and useful charts and graphs to summarize results

  • And more! By the end of the course you'll be an event budgeting and profit tracking expert!

At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I'd be happy to answer any and all questions.

More about the course:

There are a lot of good event planners and managers out there. Most specialize in a specific field and repeat the same process over and over. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The problems occur when event planners step out of their comfort zone to plan events that are larger than what they are used to. It is next to impossible to apply the same principles to a larger event.

If you are used to planning events for 300 people, you cannot apply the principles for those events to larger ones for 3,000 or 30,000 people. If, however, you know how to plan events for 30,000 people, you can downscale those principles to smaller events.

This course shows you how to plan the "big events". You can then use the skills you learn here and apply them to any size event.

A big part of planning a large-scale event is knowing all of the requirements.

More people does not mean you just need more of the same. More people need more things, different things (requirements).

A brief overview of what is covered:

  • The difference between festivals and events.

  • What kind of time frames are involved in the planning stages?

  • Attracting the right kind of sponsors for your event.

  • How to plan an effective and winning sponsorship strategy.

  • The elements of sponsorship proposals.

  • How to deal with sponsors to keep them year after year.

  • Why buying entertainment is different from buying a couch.

  • Who are the people involved in the process?

  • What you need to know about sending an "offer" to prevent you from having major issues.

  • When it is appropriate to send an offer.

  • Why artist riders are so important to the overall process.

  • How to spot potential issues in artist riders.

  • How you can utilize the Event Master Plan to plan any kind of or any size event or festival.

  • How to use the Event Master Plan in your daily planning life and how it will make your life easier.

  • How to use the Event Master Plan to prime your budgets.

  • How to use financial information discovered and bring it all together in the Cost Sheet.

  • How to use the cost sheet to provide an industry standard and accepted financial overview of all costs, revenue and potential profit, including industry-standard splits.

  • My Tools. As part of this course, you will get lifelong access to the tools that I have custom designed and perfected over 30 years of planning and managing events of all kinds and sizes.

This course is ideal for people in the following categories:

Event planners/managers that have never had the chance to produce a large scale event and would like to expand their skill set to attract more business.

Event planners/managers that have tried unsuccessfully to produce a large-scale event and want to learn how to do it properly.

Wedding Planners that want to expand their business beyond weddings.

Corporate Planners that want to grow the size of events they would like to tackle. The same principles are 100% transferable to corporate planning and I have successfully done so myself many times over.

Board Members of festivals and events (and corporate companies that put on large events).

As a board member, you are responsible for the event in many ways. Having a solid knowledge of everything in this course will help you reviewing budgets, marketing and all other plans. It also will help you find the right person to manage the event for you and provide you with the knowledge you need to see if your staff is doing a good job. You will be able to troubleshoot and provide advice.

Newcomers - If you always wanted to learn how to be a successful event planner or manager, but weren't sure where to start, this course will teach you the right principles and provides you with the right tools to do it. Learn from the Best to become the Best.
