How to organise safe & successful events - Webinar

Course Search


Today, events play an increasingly important part of our everyday lives. As a nation, we love our events! Every year community associations, parish councils, charities and clubs seek to organise a huge range of events. Whether they are to celebrate an occasion, encourage us to take part in an activity, educate us, just for fun or to fundraise, they all require careful thought and thorough planning.

Organising an event is however, no easy task, with the pressure to deliver - ever present. The aim of this workshop is to give delegates the outline skills and confidence to design, plan and deliver exciting but 'safe' public events. This webinar will help you understand all the key elements of event planning and event health and safety management. It is relevant to all types of community events - sports, arts, cultural, hobby, fund raising, historical and village/parish fetes and fairs.

The 'How to organise successful and safe community events' webinar is a high content session delivered over three days, and is designed to give you a good grounding in how to design, plan and deliver successful events. You will get clear, logical, easy to follow advice that you can implement straight away. You will also get access to my unique 8-step event planning system. I use it to run my own events.
