Top Ten Logistics Steps For Event Coordination

27 Oct

Are memories of your last special business occasion troubling you? Are you avoiding events because they take up too much of your time? Think about the last time you hosted a business event.  You began with a clear purpose for meeting, the right people were contacted to participate, and the program was carefully structured; but for some reason the occasion did not function as well as you’d hoped.

To sum it up, initial planning went well; but event coordination and logistics were poorly executed.

To be successful, you should assign one individual responsibility for directing the coordination of your events.  While you focus on establishing value-added content, your event coordinator (the meeting logistics expert) will focus on the details!  You can use a team approach dividing the work among team members, assigning tasks with target due-dates; however, the event coordinator is the one in charge, running the show and keeping an eye on the entire operation.

The selection of an event coordinator is a smart move.  Even through you remain involved in the event planning process loop, you will be free to tend to business as usual!

Your event’s ultimate success is directly linked to the coordinator’s ability to pay attention to the details!  Your event coordinator will map a strategy utilizing TOP TEN – LOGISTIC STEPS:

  1. Determine the best date and time to meet (verify potential dates, times, and schedules; and then communicate with vendors, presenters, attendees and special guests)
  2. Select and schedule the best location to meet (consider your budget plus options for on-site, off-site, conference center, private dining room, etc.)
  3. Contact and confirm all contracts (including venue, speakers, presenters, entertainment, sponsors, etc.; and communicate frequently with all regarding their role in the upcoming event)
  4. Plan and map out the program schedule (including general sessions, meeting rooms, break times, break-out sessions, refreshments, meals, the press room, and other special needs)
  5. Coordinate and oversee the selection of a theme, the design, production and distribution printed items (i.e., invitations, agendas, brochures, special materials, and related mailings)
  6. Arrange to have essential meeting supplies available on site (i.e., handouts, evaluation forms, flip charts, markers, sticky notes, etc.)
  7. Identify each presenter’s equipment needs and establish: Who? Needs What? Where?  Then, verify technical infrastructure, accommodations, and arrange for on-site support
  8. Verify room lay-out requirements; arrange for support to complete set-up tear-down
  9. Anticipate needs! Arrange for adequate host support available throughout the event.
  10. Communicate! Communicate! Communicate! (with vendors, presenters, attendees and guests).

Having this kind of talent (a detail-oriented arranger/organizer/leader) on staff is very expensive for many businesses.  If you or someone on your staff do not have the time, ability, and desire to dedicate to focusing on the logistical details required for hosting a successful business event, consider tapping into qualified resources from the Virtual Assistance (VA) industry to assist you.  With advances in technology and use of the Internet, business owners can outsource event planning and coordination, as well as many other administrative duties to a VA.

You may wonder, “What is Virtual Assistance?”  It is a working method which came about thanks to the Internet and information technology.  A practicing professional within the Virtual Assistance industry is called a Virtual Assistant (VA).  Typically, VA’s provide administrative, organization, secretarial, special project support and other niche services off-site with the use of the Internet, software, office equipment, and other current technologies.   Typically, VAs contract work from their home offices and follow an established Code of Ethics and Confidentiality.  VAs work to establish long term associations with their clients and remain invested in your organization’s success.

Two reputable online Virtual Assistant organizations can help you locate a qualified VA with proven event planning skill sets.  The Virtual Assistant Networking Association (http://www.vanetworking.com) and the Virtual Assistant Chamber of Commerce (http://www.virtualassistantnetworking.com) each provide potential clients information, VA listings, opportunity to submit an RFP, and answers to many of your questions.

Don’t let the thought of your next business occasion fill you with dread!

When you hire a Virtual Assistant specializing in Event Coordination, you may look forward to hosting your next event with confidence!  Ask a VA to pay attention to the details so you don’t have to! Remember your success is in the details!

Belajar Dari Usaha Warnet

7 Oct

Karena teknologi terus berkembang dan harganya semakin murah, maka para pelaku usaha dibidang teknologi harus siap bertransformasi atau merubah strategi usaha dan bisnisnya mengikuti perkembangan yang ada

memulai usaha wartel

Memulai Usaha: Pertengahan tahun 90-an sampai sekitar tahun 2002 boleh dibilang sebagai masa jaya-jayanya usaha wartel (warung telekomunikasi), pada masa itu banyak orang memulai usaha wartel sebab usaha ini memberikan keuntungan yang lumayan, namun sejak tahun 2002 usaha wartel kelihatan mulai stagnan dan semakin lama semakin lesu. Hal ini dikarenakan makin marak dan murahnya penggunaan telepon genggam (ponsel) dikalangan masyarakat, sehingga untuk berkomunikasi mereka mulai beralih dari wartel ke ponsel yang semakin murah dan terjangkau untuk semua kalangan masyarakat, bahkan sekarang sebagian besar usaha wartel telah gulung tikar tergilas oleh ponsel yang lebih murah dan praktis.

MEMAHAMI MEKANISME LETTER OF CREDIT ITU MUDAH

6 Oct

Mungkin terlalu berlebihan kalau saya bilang Letter of Credit bagi banyak orang dari kalangan usaha yang awam merupakan suatu momok yang menakutkan, tetapi tidak sedikit dari mereka yang merasa makhluk yang namanya letter of credit itu merupakan suatu yang asing, njelimet, penuh resiko dan banyak aturan.
Asumsi keruwetan atau kompleksitas suatu system pembayaran dengan Letter of Credit tercermin lewat jargon-jargon yang mereka kesankan terhadap Letter of Credit; “Pakai LC itu urusannya panjang dan rumit” kata seorang pengusaha kecil suatu waktu, “LC itu biayanya mahal, harus ada Jaminan segala macam” kata yang lainnya. ada lagi yang berujar “Pakai LC itu dokumennya banyak, harus teliti, salah ketik sedikit saja bisa-bisa tidak dibayar”, atau pernah salah satu Importir mengeluh “pakai LC tidak menjamin barangnya sesuai dengan kualitas dan kuantitas yang kita inginkan dan bisa jadi dokumennya sesuai tetapi barangnya tidak sesuai, bahkan barangnya tidak ada!”. serta banyak lagi ungkapan-ungkapan lainnya yang senada seirama.
