Do you enjoy planning events? Do you want to start your own event planning business?  If so, this accelerated event planning course is for you.  The Certificate Program in Event Planning is designed for Small Business Owners and Independent Meeting Professionals.


Those most interested in our program are new and aspiring event professionals, those interested in a career change, and those seeking credentials to launch and develop their business. 


Event Planning is a multi-billion dollar industry. During a recession, companies are outsourcing Event Planners and expecting a higher return on investment. They recognize the need for highly skilled professionals who are detailed and result oriented. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment for Event Planners will continue to grow at a faster than average rate through 2014. As the business world becomes even more globally focused, international meetings, luncheons, dinners, and social events become more commonplace.

What Participants Are Saying About Our Event Planning Instruction:

“Helena, Thank you for such a productive afternoon.  We are really fired up and have been working on ideas since we got home this afternoon.  With the help of my husband we were able to come up with a name for our business.  I feel as though we are headed in the right direction and have a strong leg to stand on after our class today.”  Thank you, Lori

“Hey Helena!  I wanted to thank you and let you know how much I enjoyed the class yesterday. You have such a great spirit and we could tell that you truly care about our success. We are very motivated and will be meeting with several vendors this week. We are trying to meet with as many vendors as possible over the next few weeks. We need a portfolio ASAP!”  Thanks again, Kristin

“Helena, It was a pleasure meeting you today, and I really enjoyed the training. You are an inspiration, and I wish you continued success in your business. Thank you again for all you have taught today.”  Best regards, Ginni
