Frequently Asked Questions
Where does this session take place?
This is a phone conversation or Skype or Zoom, if that is your preference.
When do Strategy Calls take place?
Calls take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We just need to arrange a mutually agreeable day and time.
What do I need to do to prepare for my call?
I’d recommend you create time to collect your thoughts at least 10 minutes before our call is due to start and grab yourself a glass of water or cup of tea/coffee. Plus schedule another 20 to 30 minutes after our call to allow you process our discussion and note down the actions we decide you should take.
Finally, you’ll need a notebook and pen for taking notes and make sure you’re in a place that you won’t be disturbed. I suggest you don’t book this session while you’re travelling or working in a public place. This is your time to work ON your events.
How long is the session?
This one-off session is scheduled to run from 20 to 45 minutes. If we feel after our conversation you still need further support or guidance, we can, of course, discuss how one of my event programmes may be able to help you develop your event planning skills. This is often how many of my clients come to work with me but there’s absolutely no obligation to take things further; especially if your plan turns out to be easy enough for you to execute by yourself.
Once you have got the go ahead then schedule the time and day in your diary.

Who is Chris Powell, The Event Expert
Chris Powell is Director of The Event Expert. Chris has been designing, planning and delivering events for 24 years. In that time he has been a local authority events manager and events director of a range of events and festivals, as well as helping a variety of organisations to deliver their events – as a freelance events manager and consultant.
For the past 19 years he has also been helping clients from the world of business, exhibitions, education, sport, the public and charity sector, training, tourism, creative agencies and festivals develop the ideas, skills and confidence to go it alone: run their own events. He specialises in providing in-house and on line events training and consultancy services to accidental, occasional and professional event managers across the UK, Europe and the Middle East. His clients include some very well-known names. He’s an in demand event specialist.
He is a self-confessed event groupie… a lover of all things events and a student of event management; keen to know what the latest event trends are and perhaps somewhat modestly suggests he is still learning to be an event manager!
However, with some 500 events successfully completed and over 4500 events managers trained, it’s safe to say that there is not much Chris doesn’t know about the ‘how to’ of successful events.
He is a regular blogger on all things events, a speaker and author of two event planning books. Work with or listen to Chris and you will get clear, logical and easy to follow advice based on his 20+ years of practical events management experience. He does indeed practice what he preaches. He also guarantees that we’ll laugh together, share light bulb moments and create a ‘things you will want to do list.’
