  • Planning The Christmas Party: 18 Steps to Organising the Perfect Celebration |
    ideas include traditional Christmas vintage 60s 70s 80s quintessentially English pantomime circus Chicago jazz winter wonderland ballroom colours film inspired wild west spy Caribbean and Santa s workshop Make a list of anything you would associate with the chosen theme When doing this consider every stage of the event This should include physical focal points such as the entrance the bar table centres and unique features in the venue as well as the different stages of the party for example arrival reception drinks dinner after dinner dancing and drinking You also need to account for any other elements of the festivities that can be included in the theming such as dress codes for the guests and staff choice of music food and drink menus and any outdoor areas Contact theming companies for inspiration and quotes 6 Fill bellies the food Food is a key part of any party and can easily be incorporated into the theme you choose Don t feel like you have to stick with turkey especially if you re planning to eat at a venue with a specialist restaurant A traditional Christmas dinner done badly in a dim sum restaurant is worse than having no turkey at all However if you think turkey is important to your group then choose somewhere appropriate or hire in caterers that are geared up to cook and serve roast dinners and will do a good job Depending on what type of venue you have chosen you will need to decide between using in house catering which will work out much cheaper or hiring in external caterers This will depend on whether the venue allows external companies to cater for events the budget available and also the food reputation of the venue if it s not broken don t try and fix it so if your venue already serves good food then this will be the simplest and most efficient way to tackle the catering Choose how you would like the food to be served For example do you want pre dinner nibbles placed on the tables or canapés taken round by waiting staff Would you prefer a buffet or a sit down three course meal with full silver service and will this be a set menu or will guests need to choose beforehand Consult with chefs and choose a style of food for the event incorporating the theme where possible Organise a vegetarian option if required and try to accommodate as many other dietary requirements as possible Insist on a menu tasting especially if you re booking for a large group Food can make or break an event so it s important that you are confident in your choices Confirm the menu 7 Getting everyone in the party spirit ordering the drinks Choose arrival drinks Festive favourites include Winter Pimm s mulled wine sparkling wine and Christmas cocktails or you could even come up with a drink related to the theme of your night Decide on whether you re going to pre order drinks or pay for what is consumed on the night If you are concerned about spiralling costs or making sure that everybody gets their fair share from the bar tab then you could narrow down the choices available or organise drinks vouchers to be given to the guests so that the budget isn t blown on Jäger bombs within the first hour Choose how you want drinks to be served Again this will depend on how you choose to manage the allocation of the drinks budget but you will need to decide whether you want waiter service or for guests to order from the bar or you could perhaps have drinks dotted around the venue or just set up in one place where your colleagues can help themselves 8 Making the right noises choosing the music Dancing at the Christmas party is usually a must and it s the perfect opportunity for everyone to really let their hair down But it does of course depend on the type of group you are catering for and how you want the night to pan out But if music is key to your party then make sure it is done properly Hire a DJ musician or live band or put together a Christmas playlist to make sure you have music playing Organise an independent sound system in other areas of the building being utilised so that music flows throughout the party Coordinate between the venue DJ and band to ensure you have all the kit required such as stage dance floor sound systems and lighting Alternatively you may need to hire in some extra bits of kit or for a smaller scale event then an iPod hooked up to the in house PA or a decent stereo system might be all you need just make sure your speakers are loud enough 9 Book entertainment The entertainment on the night can be one of the most talked about aspects of the whole event and is something that can really help bring people together and help iron out those potentially awkward moments of stilted work chat between colleagues Choose the entertainment to suit your event There is no shortage of options here with popular ideas including live performers such as comedians jugglers stunt shows circus acts or after dinner speakers You could choose games such as casino tables murder mystery giant Jenga air hockey pool arcade machines fun fair favourites or even giant Scalextric Other hits include cocktail flaring demonstrations wine tasting and karaoke while entertainment working the room often goes down well such as table magicians stilt walkers and caricaturists Fireworks always help a party go with a bang too Source relevant suppliers You want to make sure you choose reputable suppliers and agree early on exactly what is in involved as you are relying on them to ensure your guests are entertained 10 Organise thank you speeches and awards If you want the Christmas party to act as a thank you

exactly what is in involved as you are relying on them to ensure your guests are entertained 10 Organise thank you speeches and awards If you want the Christmas party to act as a thank you to the staff then a nice way to thank everybody is by actually saying it Ask a director or manager to deliver a short thank you speech and if appropriate give out a couple of awards to anybody who deserves to be recognised Please note that any speech given at a party should be short loud enough to be heard and not done too late you want to ensure the speeches don t get too rowdy or out of hand and that they don t stop everybody from getting on and enjoying themselves Coordinate between the venue DJ and band to ensure they have a microphone that can be used for the speech Alternatively you may need to hire in a PA and microphone and make sure to check whether you need to bring your own extension cord Order any awards trophies and gifts if required leaving enough time to get awards trophies engraved Make sure there is also somewhere safe to leave them or somebody is tasked with taking them all home if you don t trust

  • How to Write Case Studies About Your Events Like a Professional Writer |
    study should inspire impress and inform readers And like all the best stories case studies should comprise of three parts a beginning middle and end For our industry the following structure works well Beginning why there was a demand for the event e g business challenges Middle paint the focal points of the event End results with bloody good testimonials Case studies by wedding and proposal planners do this really well following the entire journey from how the couple met to the end results They often get clients to write their own case study 3 Bring your story to life the finer details Armed with an overarching structure and narrative for your case study the next step is to bring your story to life through the content To achieve this you will need to focus on the finer details maximise reader engagement Consider the following Write a catchy title This is one of the most important aspects of your content to grab readers attention in the first place As a general rule it is better to craft a descriptive headline akin to something that you would see in a tabloid newspaper rather than simply using a generic article title For example Nike gives record breaking performance is far better than Nike team building day 2014 Include interesting visuals and engaging videos While the use of descriptive text can clearly articulate the purpose of your event and its cultivation for example images and videos can help bring the page to life reinforce your point and drive higher levels of engagement The use of photography is particularly important when narrating your specific event in pictures as real time action shots will have a far greater impact than generic imagery of crowded meeting rooms or grouped individuals For example case studies by event agency Just Epic and digital marketing agency Alt Agency mainly include photos of their stunts and events which would be difficult to describe 4 Create natural and customer focused testimonials This is arguably the most crucial element of your case study as this will be entirely customer focused and determine whether or not your event has achieved its objectives As a starting point you should not be afraid to coach your clients into providing a unique and innovative testimonial as this will help you to transcend generic compliments and meaningless platitudes This also enables you to create a series of natural and organic testimonials which reflect the detail of the event and the emotive response that it triggered It is crucial that viewers connect with the individuals and identify with what they are saying so it also worth while conducting video testimonials and sharing these online This allows the people at the heart of your event to talk openly and express a genuine sense of enjoyment and with a minimal amount of coaching and carefully shot footage you drive an excellent representation of your hard work This is an example of a video testimonial by an attendee talking about Distilled

  • Planning Interview Questions for Event Professionals |
    those early applicants I like the Apollo in Manchester because the sloped floor makes me feel drunker and it s close enough to my house to mean I don t have to pay for taxis is the sort of answer which might suggest they are looking at events from the wrong perspective Saying something more like Colston Hall in Bristol really has the wow factor for visitors since its 20m refurbishment while the spaces are bright and airy parking and accessibility are great and the staff make sure everything is streamlined and runs smoothly for event planners however might suggest you have somebody more suitable on your hands Getting down to the nitty gritty Strategy and Tactics Once you ve established whether or not they have a general grasp on the events industry it is time to start grilling your candidates on some specifics Event planning is a strategic business and you need to find out if they have the necessary competencies to be able to effectively implement the strategies and tactics needed to organise successful events on any scale The final answer is not necessarily the all important factor here it is more about how they got there how much they listened and took on board the instructions whether they ve approached it logically and how much they have considered all the different permutations and potential eventualities These sorts of questions would be perfect for pre interview projects or exam style questions during the assessment process You have been give a brief of organising a team building event for 150 Google employees to get them sharing resources and working better together Brainstorm with me some suitable bespoke ideas to achieve the brief Naming one of the world s biggest and most innovative companies in the question should hopefully bring out the best in the applicants You would want to hear ideas which would fit the Google ethos of course but you re not necessarily expecting an answer which is guaranteed to win Eric Schmidt s approval Instead having an answer which focuses on the benefits of each suggestion as well as discussing the general ideas of what the event would involve would demonstrate that the candidate has the sort of well rounded approach to event planning which can help win more clients and keep them happy too What are some of your favourite ways to enhance an event on a budget Of course event planning isn t all team building with Google or staging multi million pound festivals there are times when you need to make something sparkle with limited resources This is a great way to test your candidates initiative assess their creative thinking and see if they show flashes of originality and fresh thinking when it comes to planning stand out events on a budget Practical considerations such as providing a cloakroom or positioning plenty of water jugs around the venue demonstrate an understanding of things which will make delegates lives easier without costing a fortune while mentioning little details such as ensuring somebody is in place to greet arrivals or putting fresh flowers around the bar help to show that personal approach to event planning too Jameson Irish Whiskey are planning an advertising campaign to reinvent themselves as a young cool brand and you have been briefed with organising the launch Explain how you would approach selecting a venue for this Using established names such as Jameson Irish Whiskey is a great way to gauge an applicant s brand awareness and gives them a chance to demonstrate their understanding of the impact events can have both positive and negative on the public perception of a brand A campaign of this scale is likely to involve a big budget too unless you specify otherwise so it s almost a blank canvas and a chance for them to show off their creativity Can they come up with ideas which marry the classic reputation and timeless traditions of a drinks company like Jameson with a fresh approach which would appeal to younger audiences and attract the right sort of coverage You would want to hear some specific venue names and there are plenty of specific names you would not want to hear too of course but more importantly you want to hear why they have considered such places It might even be that they would suggest avoiding traditional venues altogether in favour of a pop up space in Shoreditch on a surfer beach on the Northern Irish coast or nestled away in secret woodlands But the key word in this question is explain specific locations aren t what it s all about it s hearing their thinking behind why they would select a venue and how they feel this fits in with the aim of the brief And instant black marks for anyone that suggests holding an Irish whiskey launch event in Scotland The devil s in the detail Websites systems tools and metrics They may have demonstrated their creative flair their passion for the industry and shown that they are potentially brimming with ideas for planning great events But we all know that is only half the battle All the creativity in the world is almost useless if it can t be funnelled in the right way There s also winning new business billing at the correct level demonstrating return on investment planning down to the nth degree to ensure an event runs smoothly and preparing detailed reports and feedback on what worked what could be improved upon and what it achieved for the business involved be it your own company or an agency client Experienced event planners would be expected to have a grasp of some of industry tools whereas prospective first jobbers should be able to demonstrate some basic research into the tools and systems out there but more importantly show that they have an appreciation of why such elements are important These are great face to face questions too as there are some quick answers
