Strategic Planning for Events

Rotorua & Christchurch dates confirmed for 2019!

  • Are you planning for your events with the same strategic thought process you would apply to a company?
  • Are you considering the bigger picture of where you want to be, or what may occur, in five years’ time?

Events replicate the same issues, challenges and opportunities experienced when running a business so having a plan is key!

What is your vision? What is your strategy for achieving that vision? What are your KPIs? How will you know you’ve succeeded if you don’t know where you should be?

This 3 hour seminar is presented by Jon T Kemeys (JT), NZEA Regional Rep for Auckland and Events and Markets Networks, PwC NZ. JT is a strategy-focused, relationship-driven innovator in the events space. Experienced across private and public sector, government, corporate and community organisation, JT has unique insight into strategic planning for success.
