About This Class

We’ve all been to events. You’ve probably attended an event in the last couple weeks. But what can you do to make your events feel special or specific to you or your company?

We will cover how to make your upcoming event more meaningful and connected, with the ultimate goal of creating an event that is memorable and put-together.  My theory is: meaningful = memorable + effective = successful event.

This class is for anyone involved with the planning of an upcoming event. Especially those who are feeling stuck or need inspiration of how to make their event special or specific to you or your company.

For my super-simple class project, I would love to see one (or both!) of the following:

  • Pre-Event: Brainstorm of Ideas (Check out brainstorming worksheet in the "Your Project" section, if you prefer to follow with this instead of a notebook!)
  • Post-Event: Image of Event-Specific Item

Because I mentioned or featured them, here are links to Photographer Natalie Thomson and DJ Michael Ober.

I believe in you and cannot wait to see your ideas come to life!
