So you’re considering holding your own event huh? Well whether it’s a glitzy and glamorous industry only event in which you try to network, charm and altogether schmooze on some of the industry’s biggest names while at the same time, introducing who your company are and what you do, or whether it’s a more B2C event that is aimed at new customers and clients from within the general public and usually within the local area of the event. However, hosting any kind of large gathering or event is a difficult thing to pull off practically speaking and the unwary or inexperienced may find them in a slight pickle if not considered properly.

After all when you think about it objectively it’s actually a fairly large scale operation with most events catering for around 100 people or so ant any given time and obviously anything on this sort of scale is going to involve alot of planning, coordination and most importantly of all, clear communication on the ideas and goals of the events that you will need to make every staff member on the day aware of that. But what kind of thing’s can you do to cut out done of the stress on the day itself? Well let’s take a look at a few tips from the professionals to see how we can do that.

 

Furniture considerations

Now it’s very important that throughout the invitation and marketing campaign that you have in the run-up to the event itself, it’s vital that you either get your guests to fill in a paper or online RSVP to confirm their attendance on the day, or you simply make them register for free tickets. There are many reasons for this but the main one is so that you are able to actually predict with some degree of accuracy how many people at a maximum will be attending your event and how this will impact the plans and arrangements you have had made for the furniture. After all your guests will need somewhere to sit if your event has any kind of speaking portion to it.

It’s important that you first of all liaise with the company assisting you with the hire of additional furniture to help you relive the pressure on your chosen venue but you then also have to think about late arrivals and unexpected visitors and guests, obviously you don’t realistically want to be turning away a single soul and you won’t really have to provided that you use your brain and order around 10 more extra seats in order to manage any overflow that you may have that would otherwise be left to hang on, awkwardly hanging around the back of the hall, jealously looking at more fortunate people who got there early enough to get a seat.

Promotional staff

At the end of the day, your staff is great. They will most likely be the people that end up coordinating and pitching in their hard work more than anybody else on the day itself and really, their knowledge and expertise will also not only help you prepare the event and materials for the day, but will actually help you turn those slightly interested attendees into fully fledged customers with a little patience and perseverance on your end. However, if your staff is not particularly sales or marketing orientated, then you may need to get some outside help in order to effectively promote and see both your company and also the products or services you offer, and wheat we are talking about is obviously professional promotional staff.

These staff are generally well trained and highly experienced sales and marketing staff who are chosen for their unique abilities to hold somebodies attention and guide them through the products they are promoting. And while they might not have any products or industry knowledge in the same way your own staff do, they are also hired on the basis that they can learn and adapt quickly to any kind of products they may find themselves promoting.  After all, you are paying these guys, in essence, to become not just marketing tools, but really they are taking the place of brand ambassadors and spokes people and it’s important to explain exactly what you want and what you are looking for with the agency directly as so they can best suit your specific companies needs.

Things to consider when making alterations to your office

Whether you are merely looking to expand and capitalize on the space you already have in your office, looking to create even more additional space by strategically moving the walls, or even if your just feel like the office and the way it looks aesthetically no longer represents you or your company and the work you do, then maybe it’s time to consider some major overhauls of your office and consider getting it totally refitted in order to bring about that larger, fresher and newer feeling professional environment that all businesses surely crave. After all, a fresh and exciting feel to an office makes it easier to not only place staff and equipment but can also improve moral and efficiency within the office.

However, as you can probably imagine, there are so many things to consider when you are planning these major changes to your premises that many business owners don’t even know where to begin and would rather play the status quo and have no disruption to their day to day work, however if your business is to take things to the next level then growing pains are a natural and expected part of this process and they are something that you should prepare for. So let’s take a look at how you8 can lessen some of these problems before they even occur.

Turnaround, timeframe and disruption

Now as with any major works that happen to any structure, there are things that need to be drilled, pulled out, replaced and even demolished and removed in order for your premises to realize the dreams that you have for it. Unfortunately this often creates a hazardous or sometimes even major disruption issues for your business. Obviously you can expect your workers to focus while somebody is trying to smash through a dividing wall and haul out the piles of resulting plaster and wood from the floor, or for them to focus on that nest project through a thick screen of dust from destruction of said wall and the only real choice you have is to send your staff home for as long as it takes to finish off the work.

However as you can imagine this pretty much means that your company will be nonfunctional for the time that the works are going on and that does equate to lost time on projects and money on new business that you could’ve served while this is going on. However most commercial level contractors realize this and will be able to work with what you can give them in order to get the job done in as neat and tidy a timeframe as possible. Make sure that you discuss timeframe and turnover time with the various contractors who will be assisting you with this process and you should be able to get a fairly good idea of how long the work will take and how much it will cost.

Electrics

Are you completely sick and tired of Jared from IT always complaining about the lack of electrical ports ion your office? Are you fed up with never being able to plug in both your PC and your phone charger in at the same time? Easy access to both electrical points and data points are extremely important in the office environment and by virtue of this you will see the spaces that have the best access to the power and internet outlets in the office are frantically snapped up the very second that they become available. Well as part of your overhaul why not arrange for a professional commercial electrician in Perth to finally solve this dilemma for you and install and move the power points and maybe even extend your electrics beyond what the currently are to support even more electrical points

These will potentially open up new spaces to put desks that were impractical before due to their distance from a power supply. They are also handy if you ever want to install new or more equipment into t6he office in which to make the staffs lives easier on the job then you can, the choices on how you use them are really down to you. Just be sure that the electricians that you choose have the correct know-how and qualifications as well as licensing necessary to work with high electrically currents competently.

For many years, martial arts have been as primarily male dominated sport with over 85% of practitioners of these sports being men.

As well as being good exercise and a good way to stay fit, martial arts can sometimes be more useful to a woman than to a man, so let’s discuss some of the reasons that women should take up Muay Thai as a hobby.
