Are you ready to plan events, but do you stop yourself because you’re struggling to figure out how to get started and get the experience you need?

In today’s brand new episode of EventPlanning BlueprintTV, serial entrepreneur and one of the most generous people I’ve ever met, Tuan Nguyen, sits down with me to discuss how to get started in event planning by volunteering.

The tips Tuan shares in this video aren’t like any you’ve heard before so take notes!

How To Get Started In Event Planning By Volunteering

Whether you’re looking for an event planning job or you have our own event business, volunteering makes you a stronger candidate for the job and improves your chances of behind hired.

Volunteering for events helps you acquire skills and knowledge, network, and improves your decision making skills. Additionally, it shows that you’re motivated and hard-working, and many organizations hire volunteers because of a job well-done and because of the established relationship.

Tuan and I realize that it’s not as easy as it sounds to get started in event planning by volunteering. However, getting in front of your ideal event clients and involved in your community is the perfect way to get experience and build your rolodex (nobody born after 1985 will know what that is!). It also helps you expand your network to people you ma not otherwise meet.

If you’ve been wondering how to break into the event planning industry, or get in front of potential clients, today’s episode of EventPlanning BlueprintTV is for you.

Now, Tuan and I would like to hear from you.
