Event Details


Long time, event planning professional and entrepreneur Elaina M. Whitley presents 'Event Planning 101 Certificate Workshop', a 1-day interactive course to guide you through learning all about starting and running a successful event planning business as well as the many opportunities available within the industry.  

I created 'EP 101' in 2007 which has since been attended by hundreds of aspiring event professionals from around the world.   In 2010, by popular demand via social media, I launched 'EP 101 On Tour', and took my expertise on the road to several cities around the country.  My reason for creating this workshop was due to the thousands of dollars I spent attending event planning courses and still had nnooo clue how to start my business.  I am very candid about discussing my hits and misses during my 15 years(plus) in the industry. Most event planning certificate courses do not teach students how to start a business.  By hosting the workshop to a group of students at one time, I am able to share loads of information about all that I have learned, at a fraction of the cost that I paid.  You will leave 'EP 101' with the knowledge on how start your business and how to create fabulous and fun events for years to come. 

Topics include:

  •  Steps to get you started in the industry
  • How to protect your business and client events
  • Connecting with your target audience
  • Negotiating and closing the deal
  • Specific steps on how to coordinate and manage an event from beginning to end
  • The importance of why you must own a business and not just be an event planner
  • Simple ways of how to get repeat clients
  • Adding services to your business to create year-round revenue
  • Making $$$ as an Event Professional 
  • How your E.Y.E. Certificate of Completion can help you generate income from paid event & wedding gigs

Who would benefit from this workshop:

  • Aspiring Wedding, Event & Party Planners
  • Those who coordinate events for their religious organizations
  • Individuals who are the family Event Planner - Birthdays, Family Reunions, etc'
  • Event Planners who currently have a business but may need some guidance to grow their business and/or get on the right track 
  • Those looking for a possible career change
  • Those not sure if they want to own an event planning business or work as an event planner

Event Planning 101 is a hands-on workshop which encourages and requires participation. A maximum of 8 attendees are permitted to register in order to maximize your learning experience.  Registration closes one week prior to the event date.

According to former students, the information that you learn in this class is far more valuable than the cost. It is worth every dime.  Learn real-life experiences from an event planning veteran.

No unregistered, accompanying guests. No small children. Suggested age is 16 years old and up. No recording devices of any kind will be allowed into the venue.

One-on-one training for 1 Day Event Planning 101 Certificate Workshop is available. Please contact event host for details.
