"After a couple of years of planning recognition events for my company, I developed my own event check list. It's a simple sheet detailing all the different steps of the process, including theme brainstorming, venue selection and entertainment. The items are in the chronological order I've discovered from doing lots of events. So it starts with venue selection and brainstorming and ends with clean up and paying the bills. You can't imagine how much easier this has made my planning for recognition events!"
