Eventology 2009 - Recap

As a wedding planner, I make it a point to stay on top of trends, blogs, reading glossies & business related books that ultimately help to effectively run a business. I had the pleasure of attending Eventology 2009 which was held in Indianapolis & it was everything that I had hoped for and so much more!

Eventology is an intimate, collaborative and intensive business conference designed especially for wedding planners brought to you by K Sherrie and Company. This conference was a real-life, applicable marketing and business information to use to enhance your wedding planning business.

The fabulous speakers:

  • Liene Stevens - Leverage your brand to reach today's bride. Marketing in the post modern-world.
  • Saundra Hadley - How to close the deal: Sales methods for the wedding industry.
  • Terrica Skaggs - Turn brides into fans: Nurturing your relationships with clients.

The speakers were all thought provoking and I came back to Nashville with so many great ideas and ways to continue to nurture my relationships with brides!!

My top 10 take aways:

  1. The Crayon {or its scent} reminds me to dream big.
  2. Everyone lives by selling something.....
  3. Be in the know ----> be the expert.
  4. Turn their interest into desire.
  5. 30 Day Service Timelines to Clients are a must!
  6. Don't forget to share personal stories with clients...its a must.
  7. Be yourself ---->know your brand & get comfortable in your own skin.
  8. My light bulb moment.....
  9. "You can change the direction you're going in you know where you are going" - Liene Stevens
  10. Never under estimate the influence of the Sock Batt & a $17 martini!!

Check out a few pictures of our whirlwind 2 day networking & education!

Loved meeting new planners & industry professionals, many I talk to daily on Twitter & i-Wed so it was nice to see them in person! Looking forward to next year!!
