This event planning course is perfect for beginners to intermediate level event planners (think the person who has planned events mostly for friends and family, your own wedding, or who has dabbled in starting an event business). By the end of this course, you’ll confidently know how to charge for your services, how to work with paying clients, and understand how to plan and manage events professionally from start to finish. You’ll also learn marketing basics and get your event certification.
This business course is for the experienced event planner (meaning you know how to plan an event; you can manage clients and their expectations, and you’ve been working for an event company or freelancing). This course takes you to the next level, and you’ll become the go-to event business! Your business will be more marketable, and you’ll be the business owner you most want to be.
“The lessons about contracts, proposals and sponsorships, plus the event toolkit, provide invaluable guidance and tools for operating a successful event planning business. I recommend it - 100%.”
“When she said step-by-step, she meant it. I’ve completed online courses before, and it usually feels extremely impersonal. However, Melanie breaks the norm…”
“In January I had no direction and no events, and four months later I have three concerts for 200-400 attendees, three large community events plus a 2-day children’s festival!"
“After just 8 weeks, the course gave me the confidence to charge 25% more for my services and to know WHY I’m worth more.”
“Within 3 months of joining, I got 4 new event clients with contracts signed. You’ll definitely get your ROI.”
“Melanie has taken all the guesswork out of creating events and being an event planner. The training is practical and easy to follow.”
So, in 2004, I decided to take the plunge and start my own corporate event planning biz. Then in 2013, Event Planning Blueprint was born, and our signature online course quickly followed suit!
I’ve tackled it all – from corporate shindigs and fundraisers to mega festivals and even celeb soirées. I’ve worked with big shots like Honda and CanWest Global Communications, as well as Hollywood stars and TV personalities. So, you could say I know my stuff when it comes to planning events and starting & building an event business.
But let me tell you what really floats my boat: making starting a business easy and fun! Because who needs stress and drama, am I right? I want you to feel awesome about your work, your skills, and your future. And that’s why my signature online course has helped thousands of event planners reach their goals and pursue their true passion.
