How to organise successful events – A practical, step by step guide to planning successful public events
- Do you run or are thinking of running events?
- Do you want to increase visitor numbers and spend at your events?
- Do you want to learn how to design, plan and deliver high quality events?
- Do you want to be an outstanding event manager?
If so, please read on… everything you need to know about organising your own successful public events is in this innovative new e-book.
Events, like many things in life, seem in essence quite simple things but are in fact, a little more difficult to actually deliver. Designing, planning and delivering events is a bit like directing a live stage show. Unlike a show though: there are usually no dress rehearsals, safety nets, full run through and once started - no second chances. Events are the ultimate live marketing experience, get it right and the accolades will be forthcoming: get it wrong and the fallout could be disastrous. So I want to help you ensure everyone will be talking about your event - for all the right reasons.
So, what if you could learn all the insider secrets of the events professionals? Learn how to design, plan and deliver high quality event experiences, packed full of great take-away memories. Sound interesting?
Would you also be interested in knowing about an event management process that will help you deliver great events. The e-book gives you a tried and tested system that takes the guess work out of running events.
The How to organise successful events - A practical, step by step guide to planning successful public events e-book has been specifically written to give event planners the confidence, skills and tools to deliver great events. As you may already know, event management is no soft option and the pressure to deliver is ever present. But, with a little of the right kind of help and a desire to learn we can all be great event managers.
NB: What are public events? They are those events, possibly in a Park, Village Hall, Sports centre, School, Street, Attractions etc… They may be free to enter and are often attended in ones’ leisure time with family and friends.
"Chris ‘book is a very useful, clear, concise, easy to understand, step by step guide to organising an event. It is written in plain English. It is a great piece of work, which I would highly recommend to all organisers of small public events. It’s excellent and well worth every penny".

Here's a few more book testimonials
one of the most useful books 'how to' I have purchased. It is easy to use and
covers all aspects that should be considered when organising event... from the
obvious to the obscure. I would highly recommend this book to anybody
organising a small or medium size event as it takes you through step by step
and is clear concise and very easy to follow.
I personally found the top tips and chapter summaries extremely valuable and these make the book easy to read and emphasize the key points. This book is well worth the money paid as I have found that it can be used to assist with a multitude of events from birthday parties to exhibitions and fundraisers.
Whilst it seems that most anyone believes they can organise an
event, this book may make that a reality. Having been working in the
hospitality and events industry for more years than I care to remember its not
often that I can find a product or supplier who can add something to what I can
offer, but this book certainly does. It brings to the reader a variety of
options for most scenarios and even if your event does not specifically line up
with the information included within it, you will still be guided in the
direction you should be going.
A really useful aide memoire for those like me a little long in the tooth or for the less experienced allow the author's experience to show you the path to follow with the hints, tips and guidance which will enable you to organise your own successful events.
A refreshingly good read. I found it easy to navigate the main points and it has been extremely valuable to me when running numerous events recently. I've never felt the need to write a review on a book .. until now. I recommend this book to everyone planning an event, it's worth every penny.
Having had experience of running events previously at The Wow Company, we thought we had a reasonably good understanding of how to run successful events. Our events have always been good, but after reading 'How to Organise Successful Events' - our events now have more structure, can be organised with many less 'man-hours' and are now even more professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone thinking of, or anyone who is already running events. The tools and resources within the book have repaid the price of the book many times over.
I've read a lot of event handbooks and this is by far the best. Easy to read, logical steps and covers all aspects of event planning. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to organise a successful event, smoothly!
This is an extremely well written book - a must have for any Event Planner. Covers all angles of the Event Planning Process - would highly recommend!
This guide does exactly 'what it says on the tin' and is an easy to read, informative and very practical, step by step guide to planning successful public events. It is obviously written by an expert who shares his knowledge to guide you through the various stages of event planning. It has a logical flow and the information in it could also be used to organise and plan smaller events. I found it really useful.
