and Make Your Family (or Boss!) Proud
You've got event skills to share and you're both excited and nervous about planning events, but you're not sure how to get started.

And chances are you've barely shown off your capabilities, but you're ready to change that.

Whether you're starting from scratch or you've tried to start and it's not where you want it to be, becoming an event planner can change the quality of your life.

We know this firsthand. After 6 years in business and helping thousands of event planners, it's one of the most rewarding experiences in the world.

That's why we'd love for you to join us in Event Academy, so you can avoid expensive mistakes and trial-and-error and instead fast-track your results.
with Mike Holmes from HGTV
"Is this actually happening?"
Imagine your phone ringing one day and on the other end is a woman's voice that you don't recognize who asks you if you'd be interested in planning an event for some HGTV celebrities who are coming to town to promote their new TV shows...

while you did a little happy dance on the other end because you can't believe this is actually happening.

That's what happened to me.

That became my first paid event as an event planner.
EVENT ACADEMY WAS CREATED FOR PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU -- INDEPENDENT EVENT PLANNERS OR THOSE WHO WORK FOR A COMPANY WHO ARE NEW TO EVENT PLANNING.
Not sure how to manage an event budget and don't know all the names of those chairs and thing-a-ma-jiggys? Been there.

I planned my first paid event 15 years ago, and I've been helping others become event planners ever since. Today, my event courses have thousands of people enrolled from around the world.

I know what it really takes to be an event planner. 
"Thank you so much for all the materials in Event Academy. In January, I had no events and no direction. Four months later, I have 3 concerts for 200-400 attendees, 3 large community events and a 2-day children's festival! I gave my job notice yesterday!!!! Had to tell them that I'm too busy to punch a clock! YAY!!!!"

For Such A Time Productions
Planning events is about more than just organizational skills. It's about how you create meaningful experiences using your event skills.

It's about building strong relationships with clients and vendors.

It's about planning events that you love and are passionate about...
Getting started doesn't have to be slow or tough
(and you don't have to spend a lot of money either)
You can have all the skills in the world, but if you don't have the right event skills or know how to plan events properly and speak the lingo with vendors and clients, then all your effort is for nothing.

So, if you're struggling to be an event planner, chances are doing MORE research online isn't going to help you. It's time you took action!

"...since registering, I have created a business plan, registered my business, worked with a graphic designer on branding and a logo, figured out my pricing structure, and created a marketing plan. In just 3 months, I am further ahead in my business than I would have been without the program."

So many amazing, event planners struggle to get started. Why?

Because they don’t have the confidence, knowledge, skills or know-how to plan events professionally. So they waste TONS of time day-dreaming about becoming an event planner (or doing MORE online research), instead of just taking the RIGHT steps to actually get there.

Is this you?

It doesn't have to be.

There is a better way.

Just like Tysese, Monica and Marie-Christine...you can start a new and exciting event career too.
Hi, I'm Melanie Woodward

I'VE PLANNED A LOT OF EVENTS. I'VE TRAINED THOUSANDS OF EVENT PLANNERS. HERE'S HOW I CAN HELP YOU.

In Event Academy, I'll walk you step-by-step through the entire process to get started as an event planner. With quality videos (that aren't too long!), downloadable exercises and examples along the way,  you'll have the skills in no-time, so you can start getting hired to plan events.

Your clients are waiting for you!

Hi! I’m Melanie Woodward -- Creator and Founder of Event Planning Blueprint, and since 2013 I’ve helped up-and-coming event planners - just like you - achieve the success you want.
I've been planning events since 2004 (well, since my 12th birthday really!) and I've planned events around the world and have worked with:
Hollywood Celebrities
Professional Athletes
International Brands
But, I didn't stop there! I'm the owner and creator of Event Planning Blueprint and I've been featured on Eventbrite, International Business Times, The Boston Globe, CBS MoneyWatch, and more.

Throughout the course of planning events, working with clients and vendors, I've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't, and how to get clients to hire you.

Since starting Event Planning Blueprint in 2013, I've applied a lot of what I know and I've taught thousands of event planners -- helping them get started, plan their first events and get paid for their events -- some even quit their day-jobs to plan events full-time!

That's why I created Event Academy... to help aspiring event planners - just like you - learn from my successes (and a few failures) getting my own event career started. 
I've helped thousands of executive assistants, child care workers, marketers, nurses, police offers, small business owners, florists, dance professionals, project managers, corporate event planners, hospitality managers, educators, stay-at-home-moms, and many more from around the world learn how to do the same.
Real People. Planning Real Events.
"Melanie and her incredible expertise encouraged me to follow my dreams, being pleasantly persistent and daring me to be different. Her support is unlike any other and to be honest, she is one of the most talented in the event industry!"
