Event Planning Classes To Help You

So you've been asked to plan your company's next event. "How hard can it be?" they say. But you know better. You know, for instance, that hotel contracts can be slippery beasts. Without contract expertise, your company (or your client) will probably end up paying more. Worse still, they won't be properly protected.

You also know that in the event of an emergency, you'll be among the first to burst out the door screaming. Okay—maybe not screaming. But you have the good sense to know that risk assessment is not one of your strengths. Book a meeting planning workshop with us, and you'll be executing your next meeting like a pro.

Flexible, Customized Workshops

We respect your time, which is why our workshops are designed to be flexible and customized to your specific needs and questions. Want to focus on negotiating contracts? No problem. How about creating a working budget, finding suitable sites, or measuring the value and effectiveness of a meeting? We've got you covered.

TPA's workshops are taught by our very own Linda Nelson, CMP (certified meeting professional). After 20-plus years planning for Fortune 500s and nonprofits, for health care, science, engineering, and utility companies, as well as academia, Linda has dealt with pretty much every type of client and every eventuality. Her approach is open, easygoing, and fun.

"I like to laugh," says Linda, "but I'm serious about helping you learn exactly what you need to build a successful event, every time."
