WEAR PANTS, TABARNAKKK!

Seeing your faces live is awesome, people. Virtual meetings have granted opportunities to stay connected in all the best ways, for sure. BUT, being witness to your old flannel PJs or funky boxer briefs (tho comical at times!) has NOT been cool. Somewhere in this new normal, we gave ourselves permission to get sloppy and the madness has to stop. We are professionals, are we not?! Whether you are an event attendee or industry professional, choosing the right outfit for an important occasion has always been something to consider. And even with our ‘new normal’ of online events replacing onsite affairs, clothing decisions are still important. So put your damn pants on! Attending a conference or virtual party from home has its perks. You can enjoy the comforts of home without needing to arrange transportation or a babysitter. But how you present yourself is still important and no, that doesn’t mean sporting a clean pair of pajamas. It shouldn’t matter if no one can see your bottom half; putting effort into your outfit signals that you actually care about yourself. So do yourself a favor and indulge in some self-care, one leg at a time.  When you look good, you

AUDIO VISUAL FAILS RUIN EVENTS

Ivory-colored tablecloths, shiny silverware with a hint of dazzling sparkle, golden-ribboned chairs, and banquet décor you could only imagine seeing at your rich friend’s wedding… It was a going to be a huge charity event. One of our very first non-profit fundraising galas! As established corporate event planners, it was a big step in diversifying our portfolio and expanding our expertise to non-profit organizations. We were excited to help produce a fantastic cause awareness video with a $5000 budget! We couldn’t wait to show all of our 400 guests the dedication we put into this production. There would be high-profile attendees, corporate sponsorship executives, and the fundraising generosity in the room depended on this critical video reveal. We were nervous. Being out of town, we couldn’t hire our usual audio-visual experts. Nonprofit charity organizations prefer local partnerships with vendors as a kind extension of community support. We knew it would be the most critical piece of the night so we prepared it in every format imaginable…MP4, MOV, AVI, you name it, we made it and kept backups. We tested audio-visual and lighting services with our technician repeatedly. Synched and resynched the presentation script until sound and screen testing was flawless

GET $40K TO FUND YOUR WEDDING.

It is your big day! You’ve probably nursed the idea of a perfect wedding from childhood, and to no small extent, some details and luxury from your childhood idea of a perfect wedding may be way out of your financial ability. Even if you will have to do without big castles and the entire town at your wedding, funding an average wedding is worth thinking about. An average wedding in Canada costs somewhere between $30k to $35k, excluding the honeymoon. Studies show that more than 79% of Canadian newlyweds include the cost of a decent honeymoon into their wedding budget, so together, we can be looking at expenses close to $40k. The responsibility of financing a wedding falls on you. While others may offer assistance, the better part of the bill has to be paid by the couple. The options available to most couples looking to finance their wedding is either with money saved up or through a loan. Saving up for your wedding is excellent, but most times isn’t practical given that the decision to get married at times comes within a short time, at least not long enough to save up $40k. Little wonder why many are turning

FUNDRAISING REIMAGINED.

The year 2020 started with a bit of uncertainty. The coronavirus being relatively new didn’t seem so much of a threat and so, it wasn’t a factor that was included in projections or budgets. Things sadly took a different turn and the effect of the pandemic can be clearly seen in many industries especially in events and planning. Imagine Canada, a trusted resource hub for the charitable sector in our country, notes “charities face billions in lost revenue, drastic service disruption to essential community services and massive layoffs… the sector is projected to lose $15.6 billion in revenue and about 194,000 employees.” (Read full report here). Major events and fundraisers have either been cancelled or postponed. It may feel like a defeat but does it really have to be? For many non-profit organizations such as food banks, health care and other agencies that help cushion the effect of job loss, there is a growing need for more funds during this crisis. There is legitimate concern for non-profit organizations that are not exactly in the frontline but serve a purpose and still need to operate as an essential service in our communities. There is no need to stop your fundraising efforts.
