Recent Review:

Patrick N. says “Great course to help anyone in the event planning industry.  I’ve planned events for years but always just kind of winged it, if we made money great.  Now I see you can actually run it like a business and track your incoming and outgoing money.  Far more professional, and will only help me plan nothing but successful events going forward!”

Why You Should Take This Course With Me:

Planning an event is a very large task, and often the financial side is ignored or not clearly understood.  To make a financial success of your events going forward, spend time up front creating a budget where you estimate your revenues and expenses by category.  Further, using your actual results post-event, you can see how good of a job you did planning, where you made money, saved money, or overspent.  At the end, you’ll have a bottom line profit amount, attractive graphs and charts, and knowledge to apply to your next event. 

As well, the template we build in the course is available for download at the end of the course!

What We Learn In The Course:

  • Learn the basics of Microsoft Excel – no experience required to take the course

  • Create a budgeting, revenue and expense tracking template in Excel

  • Establish a break even revenue amount for your event

  • Categorize revenues and expenses

  • Create simple and useful charts and graphs to summarize results

  • And more! By the end of the course you’ll be an event budgeting and profit tracking expert!

At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I’d be happy to answer any and all questions.
