New training club offers benefits to delegates

Litha Communications has launched a training club that benefits the delegates as well as their companies. A series of training on events management takes executive assistants, PAs and department heads, who are asked to “just quickly organise an event,” through the processes. The courses are suitable also for those who regularly organise events on behalf of their company, such as the AGM, the staff party, the golf day, the stakeholders’ meetings etc.

“We want our delegates to feel as if they belong to a club, where they get rewards for participating,” explains Teresa Jenkins, MD of Litha Communications, a professional events management company of long standing. The company is now prepared to share its extensive knowledge with the market to further the skills of the conferences, events and exhibitions industries and promote South Africa as a professional meeting destination.

“If they book all three one-day courses in the series, they qualify as a LC Club Member, with ongoing support, individual prizes and the choice of a complimentary ½ day course  ‘Managing time, stress to achieve goals’ or ‘Organising formal meetings and report writing’. They are also treated to a champagne and Lindt chocolate indulgence accompanied by a luxury neck, foot and hand massage,” concludes Jenkins.

The first course, Create Memorable Events, takes place in Johannesburg on 22 October 2013. It covers the following points.

1.   First meeting   
2.   Establishing event needs           
3.   Selecting venues           
4.   Invitations & registration forms            
5.   Planning programmes
6.   Managing setup and breakdown            
7.   On the day        
8.   Checklists
9.   20 d├ęcor ideas
10. Great theme parties that work year round

The second and third in the series, ‘Organising in-house events’ and ‘Getting more from your events’,  will be held on 23 and 24 October. The entire series will be repeated later this year and begin again next year from late January.

With each Learn with Litha training course, delegates will receive a certificate and handbook. Participants who attend five courses will be given the ‘Conference & Events Management Textbook’, published earlier this year by the course facilitator, Gwen Watkins, a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP®).

Catch the Early Bird price of R3550 by booking and paying by 7 October 2013. Normal price is R3950.
