Are you the owner of your own business? It might be that you are the head of a department or even the executive assistant to the head of your company. Whatever your title, if you are planning a special event for your workers, from organizing committees to arranging for a motivational speaker, here are some ideas that might help you to plan an event that will be enjoyable to all of those who attend.
Creating Committees: If the event that you are planning is a major one, you would probably do well to form some committees to help carry the load of preparing for your event. For example, choose some artistic people in your work group who can create great posters and invitations. Think of having a. different committee who will be in charge of finding the best location for your event and of decorating it according to the theme you have chosen, either by yourself or with other committee members. Consider, too, having a committee who will be in charge of food that will be served, perhaps having a catered meal or having something as simple as cookies and beverages delivered at a certain time during your event. After you have established committees, think about having frequent meetings so that you can get reports on the progress that is being made in each of the areas of focus.
The Entertainment: Have you considered inviting a motivational speaker come to address your workers? There might be somebody right in your place of business that has been very successful in attaining goals that have been set. If so, consider inviting him or her share the way that the process of success was achieved. Another idea is to invite a motivational speaker that is not associated with your business. If you do decide to invite a motivational speaker to your event, have a meeting where you will explain the theme of your event and where you will share what goals you have established. A professional motivational speaker will more than likely include humor and interesting anecdotes in his or her presentation. If you have a group that is predominantly female, consider having a motivational speaker who is a woman and who addresses the topic of women in the work force. Speakers such as Dr. Brad Larsen can help you with your needs.
After your event has taken place, don't forget to send thank you notes and maybe even thank you gifts to those who have helped you.
