I had the pleasure of hosting some extraordinary minds recently in the Planit Perfectit event workshop. All were excited on their path to becoming a certified event planner, to learn basic ideas about the Nigerian event industry.
We had so much fun…we laughed together, learned together, and we even ate together. There was so much talent, so much passion, and so much love for creating weddings and events, but more importantly making those events uniquely special for clients.
The following sessions were coordinated by professional event practitioners and experts in their fields.
Session 1: Adegbaju Christina (Typearls events)
Getting started in the Event business
Contracts , Negotiation and Agreements
Session 2: Tunde Abinibi (Abinibi Events cottage)
Relationship between event planners and event vendors
Session 3: Jane Uche (Ariya foods)
Practical cooking demonstrations
Food presentation and packaging
Session 4: Ita Henry (Lashone media)
The power of Images , Videos in social media marketing
Session 5: Evelyn Bigha Osa (Kdine events )
Everyone I met shared their journey, struggles, and inspiring stories of who they are today and where they are going in life. The one thing we all had in common was perseverance. There were no quitters in the room. Housewives, young school leavers, career women, practicing event professionals, working men.Everyone gained new knowledge.
The facilitators and sponsors were lit. Amazing people.!
