Planning a corporate event can be exciting, stressful, and truthfully, simply overwhelming, especially when you are dealing with high-level executives with expectations that need to be met and exceeded. We’ve outlined a few ways that you can plan your next corporate event so all the puzzle pieces fall into place and you can (relatively speaking) relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor when at the event itself.
Plan well ahead of time
If you have the luxury of time, and energy to really map out a plan, taking the date(s) of the event and scheduling all the to do’s working backward on your calendar is a good way to really attack the process. With a working calendar as your ultimate guide, you’ll be able to fill in the gaps with any and all details that pop up along the way. A simple online search will yield multiple options for free calendar templates and/or inexpensive software that you can utilize.
Use event planning services
If your event is being held in a city you’re unfamiliar with, we would recommend utilizing the services of an event planning service in that city – these companies are an expert knowledge base regarding the city they live and work in, familiar with hip restaurants, fun excursions, and access to potential deals for your attendees. Remember, smart leaders, hire even smarter employees.
Book ground transportation
Don’t let your high profile corporate employees worry about getting around, whether to or from the airport or to meetings or outings. Book ground transportation with a company trusted by Fortune 500 companies throughout the world, Dav El | BostonCoach. Not only can you book coach buses, SUVs, black cars, or limousines (from a large network of available drivers and vehicles), but your employees will be guaranteed safety, security, and incredibly high quality of care.
One of the best ways to really get a handle on all the logistics surrounding your next corporate event would be to start with a classic brain dump: write down all the thoughts and ideas that might relate to the event and then organize your thoughts. Many methods can work for planning, so in the end, you just have to ask yourself, what works best for you to be successful?
