When planning an event, you can make things much easier for yourself by getting a committee or even just a couple of volunteer helpers involved. No matter what the size of the event, whether a large scale fireworks night or even just getting a table of ten together for a local awards dinner, getting extra pairs of hands involved will help you to avoid missing any details and stop the organisation becoming overwhelming or too time consuming.
When selecting who will help you, look for those who are enthusiastic or have particular skills. If you are planning a ball, you will definitely want people with good contacts on your organising committee, to help boost table sales. If you are planning a charity walk, someone who is good with administration will be helpful to make sure that paperwork and applications are handled efficiently.
If you don’t know of anyone who can help you, don’t forget that you could ask for a couple of volunteers from a local college or university. Students on event management courses need experience to help them in the future, so in exchange for a reference, you can find enthusiastic and willing support.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help or support – no matter what the event, having other people involved will make it easier for you in the long run.
