THE PILLARS OF EVENT PLANNING
PLANNING IS KEY
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
GOOD MANAGEMENT OF AN EVENT WILL
RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK
Abraham Lincoln once said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe“.
A well-organised event looks effortless on the surface. But behind it is an event manager who has planned all aspects of the event down to the absolute finest details.
If you develop a solid plan and stick to it, the actual management of your event will run like clockwork and probably incident free.
The course at the Roots Academy is aimed at instilling the habit of successful planning. Theoretical knowledge is learned by putting it into practice.
