A toured a hotel/conference center recently. There was a huge conference of cheerleaders! Lots of eyeshadow, big hair and really excited teenagers and adolescent girls. What if your conference was scheduled on the same day? Ask the venue who your neighbors will be on the day of your event. Or google the date – some of the larger events may pop up. Better safe than sorry.
So you’re planning an open house/ribbon cutting for your new business. Your store happens to be in a strip mall. Talk to the other owner store owners about doing a progressive open house. Create a road map so your new clients visit your neighbors businesses. Creates goodwill and provides value – offer some discounts or coupons at each business. A greater reason to attend!
The banquet menu offers some appealing options….slow roasted prime rib, pan seared chicken breast, ahi tuna, chicken breast supreme. Personally, the prime rib sounds wonderful. An image comes to mind of a medium rare cut covering most of my plate. Maybe not. How large is the cut? 8 ounces, 12 ounces, 16 ounces. Always ask. Your image may be far from the truth.
Kim – I wanted to include my thanks as well. The event was so well received by the participants and ran so smoothly! Have a great weekend. Kathryn Voss, Advocate Condell Medical Center
Thanks again for all your work on this event Kim. It was an amazing event and we received numerous compliments. Julie Mayer, MS, Physician Relations/Business Development Advocate Condell Medical Center.
By the way….the seminar on Friday was a huge hit. Kim played a valuable role in planning the event and if MB Financial ever needs a great event planner then I highly recommend Kim. She is extremely professional and very thorough….but I am sure you already know that. Joe Micallef, Execution Cocaching Partner/Sales ITV/Chicago.
Kim assisted us with finding a space for our family Christmas party. It can be very stressful because we have over 50 people to provide for and finding a place that is well located, has good parking and is affordable isn’t always so easy. Kim searched all over to find us the best location and we were not only amazed at the quality of the space, but the cost was lower than we budgeted. A huge win and my family already wants to use the same place next year. This is certainly not a place we would have found on our own and probably would have paid a log more without Kim’s help. Thanks again to Kim. Don’t plan your party without her. Michael J. Brankin, Grayslake.
