Through hard work and perseverance, new event initiatives and strategies can begin to transform into established best practices with the right resources, coaching and staff development.
Yet many organizations don’t have budgets for dedicated event staff or the time to send their staff for professional development training. Instead, organizations have to rely on shared internal resources or contractors to execute key initiatives, and too often, implementation is reactively. And, if key personnel leave, many organizations don’t have succession planning in place leading to event execution disruptions and missed deadlines.
EAG provides expert event workforce solutions, including interim leadership and staff augmentation support, as well as professional development and training for current staff as we work alongside them to efficiently execute event initiatives. With EAG, implementation is done proactively, and events don’t miss a beat when staff leaves or internal priorities change.
As goals are reached and your team becomes more comfortable implementing new initiatives, our team gradually transitions event planning and execution responsibility to the client. With an expert coach and trainer on our team, EAG can provide custom and tailored staff development programs to improve the proficiency of teams and individuals on:
- Event analysis and planning
- Marketing and sales management disciplines
- Contract negotiations and vendor management
- Technology implementation and adoption methods
- Budgeting and financial projections
- Developing metrics and benchmarks and measuring results
- Education programming and speaker management
Event Staff Augmentation
EAG can provide interim event leadership and staff augmentation when key personnel leave or additional resources are needed for workload peaks, helping organizations ensure event execution continues without interruption.
EAG can provide organizations with job descriptions and responsibilities, skills sets needed, and identify recruiting resources to fill positions quickly with the right expertise. We can also help leadership with succession planning and processes, so your organization doesn’t skip a beat when key team members resign.
No matter what your staffing and professional development needs are, EAG can provide the coaching, training and experienced staff to ensure organizations are prepared to deliver expected financial results and event objectives. Improving staff proficiency and the opportunity for event success can improve employee retention and satisfaction and reduce employee turnover.
