Within Canadian educational institutions, events are a crucial part of advancing an Institution’s strategic goals and serve as connectors to important audiences. Whether the event is for 5 people or 500, planning to gather people requires the upmost attention to detail. Details, often nuanced, which include: consideration for audiences (alumni, donors, graduates, community), budgets, technology, transportation, safety, diets and staffing. These considerations all must be done while meeting the goal of the events intention. TLDR: Events take A LOT of effort and collaboration across your shop. So, where do you begin?
This years’ opening education session aims to target all of nuances. Not everyone is an event expert, but everyone finds themselves planning some sort of event.
CCAE has gathered a panel of seasoned event leaders from across Canada to tell their stories, answer questions and provide attendees with an optimal start to planning and executing future events.
