      START GETTING THE RESULTS YOU WANT Hosting events is one of the most frustrating and complicated projects that you can ever do! They are expensive, unpredictable, and a painfully visible platform to build your reputation on. However, events are still a sacred component of any community, since lasting progress can only be made by bringing people together. So, while they are extremely challenging, events done WELL can transform, and are worth figuring out. Now, whether you're coordinating educational workshops, networking gatherings, large conferences, or multi-day retreats, there is actaully a common Event Blueprint which helps to ensure greater success. There are some simple steps to take, questions to ask, and templates to follow which can save you a ton of time and money.
