One of the questions that I am frequently asked is "How do I become an event planner?" It's understandable. Event planning can be a fulfilling career, however, it's not without its challenges. It's very competitive and, at times, it may seem like it's hard to break in. With layoffs, cutbacks in event planning departments, and downturn in business for many companies despite the hype about a recovery, this is a tough time to try to transition into event planning. Don't get discouraged

I never set out to become an event planner but, as my business evolved, event planning was a natural fit with my other services. It allowed me to offer one stop shopping to companies for the executive retreats, team building, and training that I facilitate.


In this special report, based on my experience and the experiences of other event planners I share:

  • the importance of a long term strategy
  • how to grow your network
  • how to hone your skills
  • where to find event planning jobs
  • why just applying online is not enough and what to do instead
  • your most important job search tools (hint: it's not a resume
  • why you should never send a resume to HR
  • why you should not be afraid to try guerilla marketing
